The Corsair and Conquest I, and the 441 Conquest II are the turboprop fueled equivalents of the 421 Golden Eagle and 404 Titan individually.

The Model 441 Conquest was the first to be created, it was outlined simultaneously with the cylinder engined 404 Titan in the mid 1970s. Improvement was advertised in November 1974, and the first flight happened in August 1976. First and foremost client conveyances were from September 1977. The 441 shares a typical fuselage with the Titan, however has a more extended compass (reinforced and wet) wing, a pressurized fuselage, and most fundamentally, Garrett Tpe331 turboprop motors. A Pt6a controlled 441, assigned the 435, flew amid 1986, yet it didn't enter creation.

The 425 Corsair in the interim was acquainted with the Cessna model lineup from 1980. In view of the Model 421 Golden Eagle, it contrasts from its contributor airplane in having turboprop motors (for this situation Pt6as). Configuration deal with the Corsair started in 1977, first flight was on September 12 1978 and first generation conveyances occurred in November 1980.

From 1983 Cessna renamed the Corsair the Conquest I, while the Conquest turned into the Conquest II. Generation of both stopped in 1986.

The French manufactured Reims Cessna F406 Caravan II in the interim is something of a mixture, fusing 373kw (500shp) Pt6a112s, the unpressurised fuselage of the Titan and the Conquest II's wings. Initially conveyed in late 1984, the Caravan II is the main Cessna turboprop twin as of now in creation.
