The Issue

The Air National Guard C-130 Hercules fleet requires continued funding for modernization and recapitalization to ensure its aircraft can successfully engage in overseas contingency operations and respond to homeland emergencies well into the future.

Recommendation

  • Continue designating at least 8 new C-130J aircraft to the Air National Guard within defense appropriations legislation
  • Continue funding for C-130H avionics modernization, engine upgrades, and propeller replacements within defense appropriations legislation
