The C-130J is a comprehensive update of the venerable Lockheed C-130 Hercules, with new engines, flight deck, and other systems. The Hercules family has the longest continuous production run of any military aircraft in history. During more than 50 years of service, the family has participated in military, civilian, and humanitarian aid operations. The Hercules has outlived several planned successor designs, most notably the Advanced Medium STOL Transport contestants. Fifteen nations have placed orders for a total of 300 C-130Js, of which 250 aircraft have been delivered as of February 2012.

Famous quotes containing the words hercules and/or martin:

    I was with Hercules and Cadmus once,
    When in a wood of Crete they bayed the bear
    With hounds of Sparta: never did I hear
    Such gallant chiding; for besides the groves,
    The skies, the fountains, every region near
    Seemed all one mutual cry. I never heard
    So musical a discord, such sweet thunder.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Old Mother Hubbard
    Went to the cupboard
    To get her poor dog a bone:
    But when she got there
    The cupboard was bare,
    And so the poor dog had none.
    —Sarah Catherine Martin (1768–1826)
