First flown as a prototype for the United States Air Force in August 1954, the C-130 Hercules, as a troop transport, disaster relief and aerial tanker aircraft has been a mainstay of the RAF transport fleet since the late 1960s (along with those of many other air forces); it has seen extensive operational use including the Falklands, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The example at RAF Museum Cosford was the last RAF C130K Mk.3 to be retired.
This Hercules C3 XV202 served with the Royal Air Force from 1967 to 2011.
I’ve always liked the concept of gaming scenarios which include the C-130 Hercules, probably down to the Raid on Entebbe, which of course has been the subject of many films.
There are plenty of 1/72 model kits of the Hercules, but for 15mm or 28mm games there is less or no choice.
