Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has delivered the first C-130J transport aircraft to the Royal Bahraini Air Force, the company announced on 13 November.

The Bahrain Defence Force purchased two Royal Air Force C-130J aircraft from the UK Ministry of Defence and contracted Marshall Aerospace and Defence to carry out depth maintenance, ensure entry into service and provide elements of an initial operational capability set up.

Following a depth maintenance inspection in Cambridge, UK, which included some minor modifications and a full aircraft repaint, the aircraft was delivered to Bahrain.

Matthew Harvey, international sales director military aerospace for Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said: ‘Delivery of this aircraft sees the first government to government transfer of a C-130J and the Kingdom of Bahrain enter the C-130 community as a new operator – we support more than 15 countries on the C-130 platform and the capability it delivers is proven. We look forward to continuing to support the Kingdom of Bahrain.’
