Lockheed Martin has announced that it has delivered the first of two KC-130J Super Hercules aerial refuelers to representatives from France’s Armée de l’Air’s 62st Transport Wing. France will receive a total of four Super Hercules aircraft — two C-130J-30 combat delivery airlifters and two KC-130J aerial refuelers — through a FMS with the US government. The two C-130J-30 airlifters were delivered in 2017 and 2018. The second KC-130J will be delivered in 2020.
