A C-130H2 Hercules military transport aircraft entered the service of the Romanian Air Force free of charge from the US, the Romanian Defense Ministry (MApN) announces, adding that Romania will receive another such aircraft by the end of the year.

“A C-130H2 Hercules military transport aircraft entered, free of charge, the service of the Romanian Air Force through the Excess Defense Articles Program, which allows the US to transfer excess military equipment to friendly and allied countries at little or no cost” , reports MApN.

The delivery of the C-130H2 Hercules aircraft took place on September 15, and between September 17 and 29, the U.S. Mobile Training Team conducted training at the 90 Air Transport Base together with the Romanian crew, to familiarize them with the new equipment on board the aircraft.

“By the end of 2023, Romania will receive one more C-130H2 type aircraft, under the Excess Defense Articles Program”, MApN also announces.

The Romanian Air Force still has four C-130 B transport aircraft and two C-130 H aircraft, the last Hercules aircraft received in 2021.
