Marshall Aerospace and Defence has signed a contract with the Bangladesh air force for the support of additional C-130J Super Hercules transports that are being purchased from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

This new multi-year contract follows on from a contract signed in May 2018, and will result in Marshall providing support for the entire Bangladesh Hercules fleet. 

The company will deliver aircraft maintenance, logistics support including the provision of spare parts and ground support equipment for establishing local capabilities, as well as engineering services.

Marshall will also carry out capability enhancement modifications to the avionics equipment and provide a passenger transport capability, as well as provide in-country technical support to the operator for an initial period, along with specific technical services to support the longer-term sustainment of the fleet.

This new support contract has been signed as a result of a government-to-government agreement for the sale of an additional batch of former Royal Air Force C-130J aircraft from the UK MoD to the Bangladesh air force.

‘We are delighted to see the Bangladesh air force further strengthen its important airlift capability with the purchase of additional C-130Js from the MoD, and are proud to support them with their fleet’s entry into service,’ Alistair McPhee, CEO of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said.

‘The Bangladesh air force can fully rely on Marshall to support them as they continue to play such an important role in UN peace-keeping and humanitarian missions around the world.’
