In 1971, Douglas won a competition to provide jet transport aircraft to the U.S. Navy in the form of a convertible version of the DC-9-30.  The aircraft featured a main deck cargo door on the left forward fuselage.  While similar to the Air Force's C-9A Nightingale Medevac version of the DC-9, the Navy version had enough differences in both mission and configuration to warrant a separate designation and name - C-9B Skytrain II.  Eventually, 16 new-build C-9Bs were delivered, with two going directly to the Marine Corps.  In addition to the 14 true C-9Bs, the Navy would later acquire 17 second-hand civilian DC-9s to supplement its fleet.  Most of these DC-9s were -F or -CF aircraft with main deck cargo doors, but 4 were pure passenger aircraft with no cargo door.
