MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): The Iraqi Air Force (IQAF) is set to receive its final three C-130J Super Hercules airlifters from Lockheed Martin.

All three C-130Js were ferried to US Air Force bases prior to delivery to the IQAF, the Company said.

The IQAF, a legacy C-130 operator, received its first C-130J in December 2012 and will have a total of six C-130Js in its new Hercules fleet.

The IQAF uses the airlifters for intra-theatre support for its troops and to provide humanitarian relief operations in various locations.
