Israel To Get Additional C-130J Super Hercules From USA



Lockheed Martin has received an Undefinitized Contract Action from the US Government for the Foreign Military Sale of an additional C 130J to Israel, with funding for advanced procurement items for a third aircraft.

Israel ordered its first C-130J in April last year and will receive that aircraft in spring 2013. The next two aircraft will be delivered in late 2013 and late 2014 respectively, Lockheed said in a statement.


The contract also covers a number of items to meet Israel’s unique operational requirements. The Israeli Air Force’s new Super Hercules is the longer fuselage or "stretched" variant of the C-130J.


Israel’s aircraft are being modified during production with non-developmental items, which include an Enhanced Service Life center wing, two embedded Global Positioning Systems and a Universal Aerial Refueling Receptacle Slipway Installation aerial refueling system.
