Details

The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a tactical transport operated by the militaries of over 60 nations, as well as a number of civilian operators.  First flown in 1957, it has been in continuous use in the United States Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, the original operators of the type, for over 50 years.  Designed for front-line operation from unimproved airstrips, the Hercules carries high-priority cargo and personnel in its primary role, performing airlift, medevac, patrol, search and rescue, scientific research, weather reconnaissance, and aerial refueling missions.  Specialized versions and equipment fits give the aircraft the ability to fight forest fires, operate in polar conditions, conduct psyops, gather electronic intelligence, and carry out all-weather precision attack.  One such specialized version of the C-130 is the WC-130J which is a fitted for medium range weather reconnaissance and data collection.  The C-130 family is still in production today.
