India airlift increases
On June 15, the third and fourth of six C-130J Super Hercules for the Indian Air Force departed the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Ga. en route to Air Force Station Hindan in India. The remaining two C-130Js on order will be delivered later this summer.
Equipped with an Infrared Detection Set, the aircraft can perform precision low-level flying, airdrops and landing in blackout conditions. Self-protection systems and other features are included to ensure aircraft survivability in hostile air defense environments.
The aircraft also is equipped with air-to-air receiver refueling capability for extended range operations.
