Description: The Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules is a medium-size transport aircraft designed to operate from rough dirt strips. The first prototype, the YC-130A, maiden flight took place in 1954. The first model C-130A achieved initial operational capability in December1956 becoming thereafter the most important cargo transport aircraft of the free world. Since then, the C-130s had assumed a wide range of military tasks such as airlift, airdrop, reconnaissance, special operations, close air support, electronic warfare, air refueling, etc. The C-130 features an aft loading ramp and door and is able to accommodate a wide variety of oversized cargo, including everything from utility helicopters and six- to eight-wheeled armored vehicles to standard palletized cargo and military personnel. The Hercules can be configured to carry out different missions and re-configured to its original cargo transport mission.

To date, more than 2,400 C-130s in more than 70 variants to five basic models (A, B , E, H and J) have been produced for customers worldwide. In the first decade of 21st century the majority of C-130s in service belong to the E, H and J basic models introduced in the early 1960s, in the 1970s and late 1990s respectively. The US Air Force, Navy and Marines operate the C-130 aircraft as well as the air forces of 66+ other nations worldwide. The US Air Force plans to convert the surviving E and H models to the C-130AMP (Avionics Modernization Program) configuration beginning in 2007. AMP covers avionics modernization and some engine improvements to keep the fleet flying and serviceable well beyond 2020. In October 2019 Lockhed delivered the 2,600th C-130 aircraft.

The Lockheed Martin LM-100J, also referred to as the Model L-382J, is a commercial freighter derived from the proven C-130J Super Hercules military transport aircraft. The L-100 freighter served for humanitarian relief missions over rugged African terrain and around the world. The more capable LM-100J is intended to serve as a civil multi-purpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient transport delivering bulk and oversize cargo particularly to austere locations worldwide. ASL Aviation Group, as the launch customer, signed a letter of intent (LoI) for the purchase of up to 10 LM-100J freighters at the Farnborough International Airshow on July 16, 2014.
