About the C-130 Hercules
The C-130 Hercules may be just one aircraft, but it has many critical roles. When troops and equipment need to get into hostile territory or supplies need to be delivered to natural disaster sites, this aircraft gets it done. It can airdrop loads up to 42,000 pounds or use its high-flotation landing gear to deliver cargo on rough, dirt strips. From utility helicopters to armored vehicles to military personnel, this aircraft can perform a wide range of operational airlift missions in both peace and wartime situations.
