So many clues - but you need a name, so, the Fairchild F-46.
Seen below with a Pratt and Whitney up front - still flying in the early '70s...

this is a bit later design, with a rather distinctive fuselage cross section shape. The continent is correct though.
It's almost like a C17: folks sitting on four rows and it can carry two general purpose vehicles that can be loaded via ramp. Very avanguardia!

I was thinking Noratlas but the roof is wrong - it's a damn wide fuselage - might be a glider - maybe something like the Me 323?
