C-130J silhouetted against the water
Pictured is a C130J Hercules aircraft from 47 Sqn RAF Brize Norton flying over the water during Exercise Valley Commando at RAF St Athan, South Wales.
The Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules is derived from an earlier model and has been modified and upgraded to include new Allison AE turboprop engines and Dowty Aerospace six-bladed composite propellers.
The new engines and advanced propellers, coupled with a new digital engine-control system, give the C-130J increased take-off thrust and better fuel efficiency. The aircraft also has a revised flight deck with modern glass-cockpit and head-up displays, allowing two-pilot, flight deck operation. The cockpit of the aircraft is fully night-vision compatible with the use of night-vision goggles.
A separate Air Loadmaster station has been established in the cargo hold. The aircraft has been cleared for wider use in the Tactical Support role.
The defensive-aids suite includes a missile warning system linked to the directional, infra-red countermeasure system, a radar warning receiver and a chaff and flare dispensing system. The defensive system helps protect the aircraft against surface-to-air and air-to-air infra-red seeking weapons that may be encountered during operations
