  1. My 2 cents. I think you need 2 switches like greatdesires said. On AFSOC aircraft we have 2 switches. One is strictly for intercom and the other is for whatever you have the wafer switch in, weather this is a radio or private. Also it needs to have a range of about 350 feet back to the base unit for doing FARP operations. I, being a lowly flight engineer cannot guarantee that AFSOC would buy it but those are the things I can see from the get go that AFSOC would require.
  2. Jansen is right. There are several differences between the planes. There are also differences in the MC's. There are 4 different MC's right now with differences between each of them. It just all depends on primary mission. Google MC-130E, MC-130P, MC-130H, MC-130W. This will explain a lot more and tell some of the extra equipment and different missions of these aircraft. I almost forgot we now have the MC-130J.
  3. As far as I know they were doing some of the weapons testing for the program you are working on with the slick and I have no clue what they were doing with the C-27. I think they were gonna do weapons testing on it until they decided we did not need a C-27 gunship.

    PCSing soon

    Cannon does not have Talons.
  5. 2 Pilots 1 Nav(CSO) 2 Loads
  6. Go on the Global and look up Hurlburt and 9 SOS Pilot distro list and send them an email there are quite a few of our pilots that are qualified on the J. As of right now they are duel qualed on MC-P and C-J. They fly EC-130J just to stay qualified and as of right now there have been no MC-130J aircraft delivered. We are slated to start PCSing our J qualified guys next year to Cannon where they will get the first aircraft and set up the TTP's for the MC-130J and go from there. Hope this helps.
  7. We usually fly with it in the 6N position for emergency situations. If you have to bail out of the ramp and door and have lost a/c power all you have to do is move the valve one position to start opening the door like Hush said.
  8. Here is a new Combat Shadow Heritage Facebook group. http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=124840340876762
  9. Dan we have an Overt/ Covert light now. Most of the time we do not use them but sometimes the user requests it.
  10. There is a nav on the HC and MC J he is the combat systems operator they are talking about.
  11. I do not think all of the flight control boost packs should be turned off either.
  12. That last picture sums it all up.
  13. My Favorite sound is the Herky Growl. You know when all 4 are in LSGI and throttles are pushed forward enough to make the engines quiet, then the pilot pulls them back into the GI Detent and she makes a growling noise. That is an awesome sound.
  14. To Mooseherc and everyone else in this thread. I am sorry if I came off as an A hole with the comments that I made. Everyone is right about apples and oranges. Both aircraft were designed for totaly different missions. I fly on Papas out of Eglin, and yes I did defend my old job as I was a KC-130 Airframes Mechanic in the USMC. I love the herc. She is my baby. God never allowed anyone to build a better plane.
  15. So when was the last time you saw a C17 slow down in flight to 98 knots to refuel a helicopter, That POS would fall out of they sky. How many have you seen with guns sticking out of the side. How many of them have you seen do the jobs of so many herks out there that you probably have no clue about. Maybe you should do a little research before you come on a herky lovers site and start bashing it.
