IAF Super Hercs Fly Together To Test Capabilities

At the break of dawn early this week the Veiled Vipers (77 Sqn) flew all six of its C-130J Super Hercules special mission transports in a tactical formation in what the IAF said was a display of "operational capability and potential of the Indian Air Force in combat airlift operations". The Lockheed-Martin C-130J is the newest aircraft in the IAF inventory. The government is currently processing an order for six more aircraft.

The IAF needs two full squadrons worth of the C-130Js not just 12 !
Hopefully these will follow soon.
