Lockheed Martin delivered the tenth and final US Marine Corps KC-130J Super Hercules tanker on 5 June, modified under the Harvest Hercules Airborne Weapons Kit (HAWK) program.
Harvest HAWK is a long endurance, armed intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance platform. The system includes a quad-mount AGM-119 Hellfire missile launcher, a Target Sight Sensor, a dual AGM-175 Griffin missile launcher, and a roll-on/roll-off Fire Control Console in the aircraft’s cargo compartment.
Six mission kits were produced for operations while four additional modified aircraft provide additional capability.
The Skunk Works modified seven aircraft and delivered three mission kits under a production contract awarded in 2012.
