I note

That our C130J fleet is to have upgrade which will enable them to have more flexability.


External tanks will be fitted God knows what the cost will be, particularly As they could have been taken off the H models. No big deal the aircraft is already plumbed for the hook up.


They are to be fitted with link 16 or SATCOM this will allow greater tasking flexability. SATCOM by the way is already fitted to our C17.

There is to be a third flight deck crew to use a bank of computers to do this.

Makes one wonder why we ever deleted the poor old engineer and why did we not remove the externals from the E and H models before we gave them away.

I some times wonder
