Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has delivered the first of two Royal Bahraini Air Force C-130J aircraft bought from the United Kingdom.

The Bahrain Defence Force recently purchased two Royal Air Force C-130J aircraft from the UK Ministry of Defence and contracted Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group to carry out depth maintenance, ensure entry into service and provide elements of an initial operational capability set up, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

After completing a depth maintenance inspection in Cambridge, United Kingdom, which included some minor modifications and a full aircraft repaint, #702 was delivered to the customer.

Matthew Harvey, International Sales Director Military Aerospace for Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group said, “Delivery of this aircraft sees the first Government to Government transfer of a C-130J aircraft”.
