Lockheed Martin officials submitted a Program Notification Letter to the FAA on January 21, 2014, for a type design update to the aircraft, a civil-certified variant of the C-130J Super Hercules to be marketed as the LM-100J. The LM-100J was first introduced in February this year with a traditional roll out ceremony held at the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics facility in Marietta, USA, as HLPFI reported.

According to Lockheed Martin the LM-100J will perform as a commercial multipurpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient cargo transport, capable of delivering bulk and oversize cargo.
