While the first of three C-130J 'Shimshon' Super Hercules transport aircraft destined for Israel is shaping up at Lockheed Martin's assembly line at Marietta, GA, the IAF is also embarking on the modernization of its existing C-130Hs through a comprehensive modernization program. Elbit Systems announced today that it has been selected to upgrade C-130H Hercules transport aircraft for the IAF.
The US Air Force began testing a C-130H Hercules tactical transport aircraft powered by an enhanced T-56 engine that could save $2 Billion, keeping the Hercules flying until 2040.
Elbit Systems announced it has been awarded a contract valued at US$62 million to upgrade the Korean Air Force C-130 transport aircraft. Under the contract, the C-130 aircraft will be installed with advanced electronic systems; the part of the existing, mechanical and analog cockpit instrumentation will be modernized into electronic, digital "Glass-Cockpit" using Elbit Systems' cutting-edge digital flight displays.
