PURPOSE

To achieve the global reach and rapid deployability our nation requires, Marine Aviation must be able to deliver Marines, fuel and cargo where needed. Answering the call is the Marine KC-130 Hercules. A tactical tanker/transport aircraft that stretches more than 90 feet in length and 130 feet wing to wing, the KC-130 Hercules can resupply austere battle zones, provide battlefield illumination, insert ground troops and perform medevac operations. It is during the mission of tactical aerial refueling, however, that the Marine KC-130 has earned the reputation for being best in the world.

 

FEATURES

Able to carry more than 12,000 gallons of fuel and simultaneously refuel two aircraft at 300 gallons a minute, the Hercules has been called the workhorse of Marine Aviation. With air delivery and multisensory imagery reconnaissance capabilities, Marines in the air now have another way to support Marines on the ground.

ROLES

Just a few of the enlisted roles include:

  • Fixed-wing Aircraft Airframe Mechanic, KC-130
  • Fixed-wing Aircraft Crew Chief, KC-130
  • Fixed-wing Aircraft Mechanic, KC-130
  • Aircraft Electrical Systems Technician, KC-130
  • Fixed-wing Aircraft Safety Equipment Mechanic, KC-130/V-22
