‘SHIMSHON’ (Hebrew for: Samson)

The plane is an improved version of the old Hercules planes. It is capable of flights that are longer in range and flies at faster speeds and higher altitudes.

The plane is named in Hebrew after the biblical hero Samson, a Hebrew counterpart to its foreign name, Hercules.

The cockpit of the transport plane has unique Israeli-made systems that provide it with exclusive capabilities.

The cargo hold can hold:

4 military Hummers

Or 97 stretchers

Or 128 soldiers
