Lockheed C-130 Hercules
The Lockheed C-130 is an American four turboprop engined, tactical transport aircraft. It first flew on August 23, 1954, and entered service in 1957. Designed as a combat transport aircraft, able to operate from unprepared and semi-prepared runways. Initially intended for the troop, medical evacuation, and cargo transport, additional roles include gunship, aerial refueler, maritime patrol, firefighting, research, search, and rescue. The C-130 has been in production longer than any other military aircraft type and holds the record for the largest and heaviest aircraft to land and take off on an aircraft carrier. Developed in the 1990s, the C-130J Super Hercules is the only variant still in production.
The airframe construction is mainly aluminium alloy and magnesium alloy. The fuselage is a semi-monocoque structure with a pressurised cargo hold, approximately 12.5 m (41 ft) long, 2.74 m (9 ft) high, and 3 m (10 ft) wide, rear door and loading ramp. The wings are cantilevered, high mounted with no sweep. The tail unit is also a cantilever design with a single fin and fixed incident tailplane. The undercarriage is a retractable tricycle type with the nose unit retracts forward into the fuselage and the main units retracting into fairings on each side of the fuselage. The flight crew consists of two pilots, navigator, flight engineer, and loadmaster. The C-130J has a minimum of two pilots and a loadmaster.
Powered by four wing-mounted Allison T56 turboprop engines developed for the C-130, a new application of the turbine at that time. The Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules uses the Rolls-Royce AE 2100, driving six-bladed scimitar propellers. The C-130H has a cruise speed of 540 km/h (336 mph), a maximum speed of 592 km/h (366 mph), a service ceiling of 10,060 m (33,000 ft) empty, a maximum range of 3,800 km (2,360 mi) and maximum payload of 20,400 kg (45,000 lb).
According to FlightGlobal’s 2020 annual World Air Forces report, the IRIAF operates 27 C-130E/H Hercules with numbers 11, 71, 72 Tactical Airlift Squadrons, and Reconnaissance Squadron.
