Super Hercules looking good
22 June 2012
Lockheed Martin has announced that they are to bring out a new civil-certified variant of the proven and much loved C-130J Super Hercules, which will be known as the LM-100J.
Able to operate from short, unprepared airfields without ground support equipment, the LM-100J will be a versatile addition to large freight and oversize cargo charter business, offering a modern take on a recognised stalwart of the industry which has more than one million fleetwide flight hours.
The LM-100J requires minimal material handling equipment and enables rapid onload and offload at truck-bed height. Growth provisions built into the LM-100J will enable it to support a variety of future special missions including aerial spray, aerial firefighting and delivery, medevac/air ambulance, humanitarian aid and VIP transport.
