MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): Lockheed Martin recently delivered two KC-130J Super Hercules aerial refuelers to Saudi Arabia, to be operated by Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF).

Saudi Arabia has the distinction of having the largest legacy Hercules fleet outside of the United States of America.

These new KC-130Js were acquired by the Kingdom through a Foreign Military Sales programme with the U.S. government.

The KC-130J aerial refueler is the latest in a long line of combat-proven C-130 Hercules tankers.

The aircraft is a proven platform in use worldwide, taking full advantage of technological and performance enhancements inherent in the C-130J Super Hercules.

The KC-130J refuels tactical aircraft, helicopters and tilt-rotors. In addition, it is also capable of conducting rapid ground refueling of expeditionary forces.

The C-130J Super Hercules is the proven standard in tactical airlift, providing a unique mix of versatility and performance to complete any mission, anytime, anywhere, a Lockheed Martin statement said.
