C-130 News: Lockheed Martin says Israel considering additional C-130Js


Recommended Posts


The Israeli Air Force (IAF) might expand its fleet of C-130J Hercules fleet to up to nine aircraft, a senior Lockheed Martin executive said in Israel on 4 November.

The IAF received its first two C-130Js earlier this year and they are now operational at Nevatim Airbase in southern Israel. (Lockheed Martin)

The IAF has already taken delivery of two C-130Js, a contract has been signed for another two and advanced talks are underway to acquire a fifth and sixth aircraft, according to Patrick M Dewar, executive vice-president of Lockheed Martin International.

Once the contract is finalised, the two additional aircraft can be delivered within two and a half years, he said.

In the next stage, Israel will examine the possibility of acquiring an additional three C-130Js, Dewar added.
