Sultanate Of Oman acquires C-130J Super Hercules


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Lockheed Martin
: 06 June, 2009  (Application Story)
Lockheed Martin has signed a contract with the Sultanate of Oman for a C-130J Super Hercules. The aircraft, to be delivered in mid-2012, is in the longer C-130J-30 configuration.
'The C-130J is ideally suited to the operating conditions found in Oman and other areas of the Gulf,' said Jim Grant, vice president for business development at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. 'Again we see a country that has recognized all the proven qualities of this world-leading airlifter purchasing additional aircraft.'

Oman currently operates a fleet of three C-130Hs purchased in the early 1980s. The new C-130J will be used to further support Omani operations where its ability to operate out of remote austere airstrips will be invaluable.

This order for Oman brings to 11 the number of countries that have acquired C-130Js. Other nations which are operating or have ordered the C-130J include Australia, Canada, Denmark, India, Iraq, Italy, Norway, Qatar, the United Kingdom and the United States.
