Tunisia’s first C-130J sees daylight

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has completed painting the first of two Tunisian Air Force C-130J-30 Super Hercules.  Tunisia currently operates a fleet of C-130Hs and C-130Bs, first purchased in the mid-1980s.  The new C-130Js will support Tunisian operations across the mission spectrum, including relief efforts around the world, firefighting and traditional airlift sorties.  The first aircraft is due for delivery later this year.
