    Lockheed Martin Delivers Two KC-130J Super Hercules to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    ARIETTA, Ga., March 14, 2016
    – Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) recently delivered two KC-130J Super Hercules aerial refuelers to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to be operated by Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) crews.

    The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the 16th country to operate the C-130J Super Hercules to meet its refueling and airlift needs. Saudi Arabia has the distinction of having the largest legacy Hercules fleet outside of the United States of America. These new KC-130Js were acquired by the Kingdom through a Foreign Military Sales program with the U.S. government.

    “Our decades-long C-130 partnership with Saudi Arabia continues with the addition of the KC‑130J to the RSAF airlift fleet,” said Christopher Antone, Lockheed Martin vice president of Business Development for Saudi Arabia. “We are honored by the Kingdom’s decision to enhance its existing fleet with the proven capabilities and superior performance of the KC-130J Super Hercules. With more than 50 years of C-130 operations in the Kingdom, we look forward to continuing our partnership with Saudi Arabia in the years to come.”
