I have listed the transfers of the EC-47's to the SVNAF as I know them.
These are listed below.
EC-47N and EC-47P airplanes transferred to South Vietnam Air Force
EC-47N and EC-47P airplanes with 718 Squadron of the SVNAF in November 1972. These were probably transferred from the USAF during implementation of Project Enhance Plus.

The first data are the individual airplane codes. They were normally written on the vertical stabilizer. The first letter represented the squadron and was usually rendered in a smaller font than the second letter that represents the individual airplane. In later photos, the appearance of the codes was greatly simplified. These have been included to aid in identification of any photos that may exist.
Note that the final airplane, 42-23520, is reported in several Air Force records to have crashed on 2 May 1944 in Burma. However, this airplane is listed in several records as converted to an EC-47N for use in Vietnam. Clearly, one or other record is incorrect.

Other EC-47 airplanes were transferred to the SVNAF also. These were probably held in reserve or used for spares. The following have been reported.
