Anyone know which models and serial numbers and who received 5754 and 5762
Also are either of both of the Israeli Herks 5723 and 5742 KC's?

Just found the answer to one question 12-5762 is an MC-130J at 17 SOS

As PerfManJ pointed out the Israeli Herks are -30's, but they are UARRSI equipped. (Universal Aerial Refueling Receptacle Slipway Installation).
