A U.S. Air Force crew accepted delivery of a new Lockheed Martin MC-130J Commando II aircraft on August 11.

This MC-130J Commando II multimission combat transport/special operations tanker is assigned to the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) at Hurlburt Field, Florida.

As it replaces legacy MC-130P Combat Shadow aircraft, the MC-130J provides AFSOC with a modern aircraft capable of worldwide employment for missions requiring clandestine single- or multi-ship, low-level aerial refueling of special operation force vertical and tilt-rotor aircraft; and/or infiltration, resupply and exfiltration by airdrop or landing on remote airfields
