    Holy crap, sounds like you've had a pretty extensive aviation career. it's funny you should mention that about the C-130. When i first found out that this was the aircraft i was working on i was kind of disappointed. That didn't last long after i realized just hor versatile it really is. One of the first C-130's i worked on was a 1961 E Model. There was still visible battle damage from Viet Nam in the nose landing gear. That's when i changed my mind and started having pride in the C-130. Any yes, i am in the military. If i had a chance to do it again, i wouldn't change a thing. There's not an erier sound than that of an AC-130 gunship flying overhead and hearing the burp of the gatling gun report.

    Decided to email instead of posting, glad to answer no problem Sir. Retired Design engineer. 3D solid modeling, Honeywell Aerospace, commercial and Military flight instruments. I was mainly in the displays dept. LCD cockpit displays. 1964-2002. in the begining the displays were all mechanical: meters, rotating ball, motors, sychros, gear trains, etc. then CRT, then LCD. Last commercial plane I worked on was 777, last Mil was C5A. Your 130 uses our FMS from 737 I believe. and Collins. Honeywell was Sperry when I started in gyros as a young punk draftsman. 47 years ago! ouch! thanks for your service if you are Military and also thanks if you are civilian. The C-130 is still the best all around short or long runway workhorse ever built. Carried a Gatling Gun or two from time to time, as you know. Very scary to the enemy. keep safe bud.

    Appreciate the reps! Sometimes I like to toss a little devilish humor in there.

    no worries, well i guess the dealer did lie to me. probably so i would buy one off th lot that day rather than wait and have a 3V ordered

    I just read your message, sorry i did not see it sooner. The 3V motor is an option, it was $895.00. I do believe standard is the 2V.
