The C-130 Hercules is a medium/long-range combat transport aircraft. A spawn of the US Air Force in 1951, the C-130 still remains one of the most widely used transport aircraft by the Armed Forces. Nearly forty C-130s were produced yearly throughout the entire 1990's. When empty, the aircraft weighs 75,743 pounds. However, the Hercules can carry nearly 100,000 pounds for a maximum take-off weight of 175,000 pounds.

Lockheed C-130H Hercules

Designed to function as a troop, medical evacuation and cargo transport aircraft, the C-130 Hercules was first flown on August 23rd, 1954. Built by Lockheed and capable of over 40,000 lbs of payload, this four-engine turboprop aircraft is quite possibly the most versatile tactical transport in existence. Its modern roles include airlift and airdrop, electronic surveillance, search and rescue, space-capsule recovery, helicopter refueling and aerial attack. Capable of takeoffs and landings from unprepared runways, the C-130 has even landed and taken off from a carrier deck without benefit of arresting gear or catapults.
