Comment(s):

The above report relates to military aircraft only. Including the aircraft delivered to civilian operators (L-100 versions) more than 2.500 Hercules's have been build. Aircraft listed as civil in the report refer to three former US Navy EC-130Qs sold on the civilian market.

Lockheed Martin currently build the C-130J Super Hercules
 Currently the C-130J Super Hercules models are build and with especially orders for the US armed forces the number will rise.


France:

Ordered four Super Hercules, two C-130J.30 and two KC-130J. Might order another two C-130Js.

Germany:

Will order the Super Hercules which will be jointly operated with France.

Saudi Arabia:

US Congress authorized the sale of 28 Super Hercules. Two KC-130J were ordered and these have been delivered.
