C-130J Super Hercules

The updated and upgraded version of the venerable C-130 Hercules, the Super Hercules will be the standard and adaptable transport aircraft of the US Forces in TAOW.




After numerous internal upgrades, the seemingly "exteriorly similar" C-130J was immensely upgraded internally over it's predecessor. Main integral upgrades include new generation electronics / avionics and the need of a smaller crew.




The main external differences are it's new turboprops with six-bladed propellers (as opposed to the C-130's 4 propellers), these new propellers are also produced in composite materials, making them more resistant yet light.
