MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): The Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) has taken delivery of two additional C-130J Super Hercules aircraft from US defence major Lockheed Martin.

These C-130Js will join the ROKAF's other two Super Hercules aircraft, which were delivered in March. ROKAF aircrews also currently operate a fleet of C-130H legacy aircraft.

The ROKAF's new Super Hercules is the longer fuselage or 'stretched' combat delivery variant.

Lockheed Martin is also contracted to provide a two-year support programme, including C-130J aircrew and maintenance training. South Korea is the 14th country to fly the proven C-130J.
