THEY CALL IT HERCULES FOR A LOT OF REASONS.
The C-130 is the toughest, most dependable airlifter in the world. Weather it’s roaring off the ice of an Arctic runway or landing in the sand of the Saudi desert, the C-130 is strong enough to get the job done.
And the Hercules tactical transport is on just about every job you can name. It hauls troops and cargo, beans and bullets, and everything in between. It’s rugged enough to fly off unprepared runways and to operate in austere environments. In various configurations, the C-130 is a tanker, an electronic warfare platform, a search and rescue plane, even a close air support aircraft.
Throughout the world, the toughest jobs always go to Hercules.
