C-130J ... consegnato alla Francia il primo esemplare ...

 

France's first Lockheed Martin C-130J was delivered to its Orléans air base on 22 December 2017.
Carrying the service registration 61-PO, the tactical transport is the first of four C-130Js being acquired by Paris.
Its second airlifter will be received later this year, while a pair of KC-130J tanker/transports – needed to refuel combat helicopters in-flight – are to follow during 2019.

Eccecredo!

Con le consegne dell'A400M che vanno a rilento...

Comunque, le per certi versi "giuste" critiche all'uscita dell'Italia dal programma A400, ora acquisiscono un'altra rilevanza, vedendo i principali acquirenti dell'Atlas dover ricorrere al "nostro" C-130J per tamponare i buchi lasciati dai ritardi di Airbus.
