Two questions guys:

1. Whst is the difference between L100 aircraft, and L382;

Thanx in advance

PJ

To answer the question, nothing they are one in the same...

The breakdown...

L82 is the basic model number for all C130/variants, but they also have expanded model numbers as well...(Not all Lockheed aircraft have the expanded numbers, IE the P3)

The expanded model numbers...

L182 - all Alpha's, and mission specific varants

L282 - all Bravo's and varants

L382 - all C130E's / L100's and later aircraft, including the stretches.

Lockheed started a version number as well, not sure if it was at the start of the Jaybirds, before or after, but they are used on the F/A-22 as well. Though not sure if anyone will see/know these other than those in the plant won't waste time typing those.

C130, C130-30, L100-20, L100-30 is what is called the aircraft type.

Other examples of Lockheed Model numbers are

L22 = P38 Lightning

L85 = P3 Orion

L88 = L188 Electra

L93 = L1011 Tristar

L645 = F/A22 Raptor

Thank you kindly sir. I figured it was that, but office-types don't want to believe it .....
