Herpa 1/500th scale 537438 Luftwaffe Lockheed C-130J-30 Super Hercules – Binational Air Transport Squadron – 55+01. Available to pre-order at Flying Tigers.
For the first time, a model of the latest Hercules variant, the C-130J-30 “Super Hercules”, is released in the 1/500 scale. New features include six-blade propellers and the air-to-air refueling probe above the cockpit. Germany has ordered a total of six “Super Hercules” from Lockheed, which will be used from Evreux Air Base in Normandy, France, in the joint Franco-German transport squadron. In February 2022, 55+01 became the first German C-130J to arrive at Evreux. In its short past, the unit has already played an important role in supporting counter-terrorism operations across Africa, humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan and, more recently, in strengthening the defence of NATO’s eastern flank amid Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.
