Standing the test of time for 70 years, the C-130 is now the longest continually produced military aircraft

Developed as a four-engine military transport aircraft, the Lockheed C-130 Hercules was to provide crucial airlift and tactical supply drop operations to the battlefield.

Standing the test of time for 70 years, the C-130 is now the longest continually produced military aircraft. With over 2,500 manufactured, the type has served in over 60 nations across the globe, with both civilian and military duties.

 

Operated by a crew of 5 onboard, this medium sized aircraft has a length of 97 ft and 132 ft wingspan. Powered by four of the Allison T56-A-15 turboprop engines, the C-130 can reach speeds of 370mph, altitude over 33,000 ft, and range up to 2,300 miles. Maximum payload is 42,000 lbs, or capacity for 92 passengers, 3 Humvees, 64 troops, or 6 pallets of supplies. Maximum takeoff weight is 155,000 lbs and takeoff distance is completed in just under 3,600 ft at full load. Contrast to this, with no payload onboard the C-130 can leave the ground in just 1,400 ft!

 

Known as the “Hurricane Hunters”, the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron provides real-time weather data at a consistent rate. Only one of its kind in the world, this squadron operates 10 of the Hercules under designation WC-130J. Modified to accept and broadcast data, each aircraft carries pallets of meteorological sensors and instruments on every mission. Die-Cast version has an accurate paint scheme, etched panel lines, pad printed decals, and authentic paint scheme. Includes both retracted and deployed landing gear, wing mounted fuel tanks with press-fit installation, and display stand to show the model in flight. Also features a multi-position cargo ramp and spinning propellors on all 4 engines. Measures 6”l with a 8”wingspan at 1:200 scale.
