On July 24, 2018, California secured approval for the future acquisition of seven C-130H aircraft to CAL FIRE. A provision included in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allowed the transfer from the United States Coast Guard, to California, upon the completion of modifications by the United States Air Force. This modification process includes replacement of center wing boxes and outer wings, general programmed depot level maintenance, (PDM), painting, and Retardant Dispersal System (RDS) installation. Once complete, the United States Coast Guard can transfer ownership to CAL FIRE. Based on the extensive wing-box modifications, RDS contracting/installation by the United States Air Force, and need for pilot training and certification, the first transferred C-130H's will be response ready in 2022.

The C-130H will be used for rapid initial attack delivery of fire retardant on wildand fires. These 7 new airtankers will support CAL FIRE's existing fleet of aircraft from air attack bases strategically located throughout California.

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.
