Lockheed announces $3B deal for 50 C-130J Super Hercules aircraft
Jan. 13, 2020

Lockheed Martin Co. announced the start of a $3 billion contract on Monday to deliver 50 C-130J Super Hercules planes to the U.S. government.

The Defense Department awarded $1.5 billion for delivery of the first 21 planes, the company said of the multi-year deal finalized at the end of December.
In all, the Air Force will receive 24 MC/HC-130J troop-carrying and search and rescue planes, the Coast Guard will receive six HC-130Js, and the Marine Corps will receive 20 KC-130J tanker refueling planes.

In use since 1956, the four-engine turboprop aircraft is used for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, and aerial firefighting, and in the case of the AC-130 variant, as a gunship.

The Super Hercules is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide, and the air forces of at least 60 nations have operated the plane.

The contract announced Monday calls for planes to be made in Lockheed Martin's Marietta, Ga., facility, with deliveries expected between 2021 and 2025.
