The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four engine turboprop military transport aircraft built by Lockheed. It is the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide.

Over 40 models and variants of the Hercules serve with more than 50 nations. In December 2006 the C-130 became the fifth aircraft — after the English Electric Canberra, B-52 Stratofortress, Tupolev Tu-95, and KC-135 Stratotanker — to mark 50 years of continuous use with its original primary customer, in this case, the United States Air Force. The C-130 is also the only military aircraft to remain in continuous production for 50 years with its original customer, as the updated C-130J Super Hercules.

Air to Air Refueling

As of 04/02/2009, The C-130 from CVS is capable of receiving fuel by air-to-air refueling (AAR). You can do AAR by lining up behind the tanker and coming in contact with it as you would with any other AAR aircraft.
