Lockheed Martin today delivered 300th C-130J Super Hercules, an MC-130J Commando II assigned to the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command.

The Commando II supports such missions as in-flight refueling, infiltration/exfiltration, and aerial delivery and resupply of special operations forces.

"The delivery of this 300th C-130J is a major achievement for the entire Super Hercules community. Together, we built an aircraft that it is ready for any mission, anywhere, anytime," said George Shultz, vice president and general manager of the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company's C-130 programs. "Partnerships and commitment are at the core of this Super Hercules, as was the case with the 299 C-130Js that came before it and with the many others that will follow."

Sixteen countries have chosen the C-130J Super Hercules to meet their air mobility needs. The "J" is the standard by which all other airlift is measured in terms of availability, flexibility and reliability.

With more than 1 million flight hours, the C-130J has been deployed in two combat theaters where they operated at a very high tempo efficiently and reliably. In non-combat -- but equally harsh --environments, C-130Js are often the first to support missions like search and rescue, aerial firefighting, and delivering relief supplies after earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons and tsunamis around the world.
