Lockheed Martin has delivered an additional MC-130J Commando II aircraft assigned to the US Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC).

Crews from the US Air Force ferried the aircraft to Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico, from the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, the company said in a statement Thursday.

The MC-130J Commando II multi-mission combat transport/special operations tanker, assigned to the AFSOC, delivers increased combat performance to the warfighter with its more powerful engines.

As it replaces the older MC-130E/H Combat Talon I/II and MC-130P Combat Shadow II aircraft, the MC-130J provides AFSOC with a modern aircraft capable of worldwide employment for missions requiring clandestine single- or multi-ship low-level aerial refueling of Special Operation Force vertical and tilt-rotor aircraft and/or infiltration, resupply and exfiltration by airdrop, or landing on remote airfields.
