MARIETTA, GEORGIA Dec (BNS): The Republic of Tunisia has taken delivery of its second C-130J Super Hercules, US defence major Lockheed Martin said.

Tunisia received its first C-130J in April 2013, marking the first delivery of a J-model to an African nation.

Lockheed Martin signed a contract in 2010 with Tunisia to deliver two C-130Js, as well as to provide training and an initial three years of logistics support.

"Tunisia's Super Hercules fleet is both a national and a regional asset, able to support more missions than any other aircraft in operation today," said George Shultz, vice president and general manager, C-130 Programmes, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.
"We are proud to have Tunisia as a member of the global C-130J family. As legacy operators, Tunisian Air Force crews have long showcased why the C-130 is the world's most versatile aircraft and continue to do so with its C-130J fleet."

Tunisia's new C-130Js are the longer fuselage or 'stretched' variant of the aircraft. Tunisia's new C-130Js will support operations across the mission spectrum, including relief efforts around the world, firefighting and traditional airlift sorties.
