The RCAF operates 26 examples of the CC-130 Hercules, nine legacy H models of which five are now air-to-air refuelling (AAR) tankers and 17 of the newer CC-130J Super Hercules. The CC-130H fleet is predominantly used for AAR and search and rescue, with the aircraft being based at 14 Wing, Greenwood, 8 Wing Trenton and 17 Wing Winnipeg. Canada's newer CC-130J has replaced the E model in the tactical airlift role. Equipped with upgraded engines, avionics and structural changes, the Super Hercules is now in use with over a dozen countries around the globe.
