C-130J

This is a great contract win for Lockheed.

The Airbus A400M has been stumbling along through R & D now for several years with many costly setbacks and reworks.  The A400M project is like the European equivalent of America’s VH-71 presidential helicopter.

The C-130 is, and has been, the in theatre workhorse for the American military for decades.  It is one of the sturdiest and adaptable airframes in operation.
