First Look, First LM-100J


In 2017, Lockheed Martin will unveil the newest member of the C-130J Super Hercules family: the LM-100J commercial freighter. This series follows pivotal production milestones of the first LM-100J. As it is based on the operational C-130J, the civil variant LM-100J can operate from short, unprepared airfields without ground support equipment. It requires minimal material handling equipment and enables rapid onload and offload at truck-bed height. Growth provisions built into the LM-100J will enable it to support a variety of future missions including aerial spray, aerial firefighting and delivery, medevac/air ambulance, humanitarian aid and VIP transport. More than 100 L-100s, which were the commercial variant of the first generation C-130, were produced from 1964-1992 at the then Lockheed-Georgia Co., Marietta, Georgia., facility. Many of those airlifters are still operated worldwide by commercial and government customers. It’s been said that, “only a Herc can replace a Herc.” The LM-100J stands ready for any job at hand.
