The Malaysian aerospace firm Aircraft Inspection, Repair & Overhaul Depot (AIROD) has won a 5-year contract from the United States for the maintenance of Lockheed Martin KC-130J Super Hercules aircraft of the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) based in Lawakuni, Japan.

The contract will also identify potential in-service repair workload which may develop during the life of the contract. The in-service repair would cover other services, including component/part repairs, corrosion control, rework, drop-in repair, manufacturing parts and such for forward deployed US Navy and USMC similar aircraft outside of the scope of organizational-level maintenance abilities.

Several aviation partner firms in Malaysia would also be providing a supporting role to the program.
