Lockheed Martin delivers additional MC-130J to U.S. Air Force

A U.S. Air Force crew accepted delivery of an MC-130J Commando II at the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Ga., Aug. 11, 2016. This MC-130J Commando II multimission combat transport/special operations tanker is assigned to the Air Force Special Operations Command at Hurlburt Field, Fla. As it replaces legacy MC-130P Combat Shadow 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.
