Lockheed Martin has filed a request with the US FAA for a type design update for the Model L-382J, a civil-certified version of the C-130J-30 Super Hercules.

The aircraft, which will be marketed as the LM-100J will be a radical improvement over the commercial L-100 model which was built from 1964 to 1992, but utilising the many cargo handling and performance enhancements offered by the latest military C-130J model.

“The LM-100J is a natural expansion of the Super Hercules family,” George Shultz, vice president and general manager, C-130 Programs said in a statement. “It is a modern answer to the existing, multi-tasked L-100 airlift fleet which, true to Hercules form, is a workhorse that has been a critical cargo asset for 40 years.”
