Back when I was going to tech school (1963), I was taught TMS -- C-130H = type, model, series.

Thanks, Why we say E model B model if it is series w should H, E, or B series

Munir, Just the way it is. It's incorrect but it's unlikely it will ever change.

Maybe it will help explaining it a different way.

C-130B They have a high pressure gaseous oxygen system and no pylon tanks.

C-130E They have a liquid oxygen system and pylon tanks.

C-130H They can have many different systems from the first H models but what sets them apart from E models is they were built for a 40,000 hour flying time life span VS a 20,000 hour life span of the E models.

To break down DC10FE's post:

C= type (cargo

130=model

B/E/H/J= series

As things change on the C-130, if enough things were changed with the airframe or systems the series identifier is changed to depict it. I hope this helps.
