MARIETTA, GEORGIA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has completed delivery of the second production C-5M Super Galaxy.

The fifth C-5M overall to be delivered to the Air Force will undergo internal paint restoration before travelling to its home base at Dover.

Lockheed Martin is on contract to modernize a total of 52 C-5s, consisting of 49 B-, two C- and one A-model aircraft through the Reliability Enhancement and Re-Engining Program (RERP).

The programme incorporates more than 70 changes and upgrades, including newer, quieter General Electric engines making the C-5M more reliable and 10 percent more fuel efficient than legacy C-5s.

Three test aircraft were delivered and flown before the modernization programme entered full production.

The C-5 can carry twice the cargo of other strategic airlift systems and is the only strategic airlifter capable of carrying 100 percent of certified air-transportable cargo.

The Super Galaxy is America’s premier global direct delivery weapon system and the only strategic airlifter capable of linking the homeland directly to the warfighter in all theaters of combat without refueling, the company said.
