US Marine Corps KC-130J Hercules

The United States Marine Corps is in the process of renewing its Hercules fleet with the modern KC-130J version of the turboprop airlifter. The Marines use their Hercules for transport, utility and aerial refuelling as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance using the Harvest HAWK mission package. During the Air Tattoo, the Marines will demonstrate the Hercules in its aerial refuelling role, simulating the refuelling of one of the F-35B Lightning II participating in the display.
