MARIETTA, US (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a contract from Oman to supply two more C-130J Super Hercules military transport aircraft in addition to a first one ordered in 2009.

The two new C-130Js will be short configuration aircraft and will be delivered in late 2013 and early 2014, Lockheed said.

Oman had ordered the first long configuration C-130J Super Hercules in July 2009 which is slated to be delivered in 2012.

The Arabian country currently operates a fleet of three C-130Hs purchased in the early 1980s. The new C-130J fleet will support Omani operations with its outstanding capability to operate out of remote, austere airstrips, Lockheed said.

The C-130J Super Hercules is an advanced tactical airlifter capable of combat delivery, air-to-air refuelling, special operations, disaster relief and humanitarian missions.
