Lockheed-Martin-BlueLockheed Martin has helped to deliver two C-130H Hercules cargo aircraft for Afghanistan’s air force, IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly reported the same day.

Gareth Jennings writes that these two planes were surplus from the U.S. Air Force and were received by Afghanistan at Kabul International Airport.

NATO Air Training Command-Afghanistan will help the Afghan air force for initial operations of the planes, according to the report.

The Hercules planes are intended to supplement Afghanistan’s upcoming Cessna 208B Grand Caravan light transport and utility aircraft deliveries.

Two additional Hercules will be delivered to Afghanistan at a later date, Jennings reports.
