Awesome-- C-130! Let's hope that a paint kit is included and easier to use than is the 737s paint kit!

Also...it would be great to have a standard fuselage variant as well as the -30J...but that's probably a bridge too far.

The actual version we are doing is the Canadian C-130J as we have full on access to one. The major differences here are that there's no command/control subsection on the flight deck for the load commander/extra crewmember. We will be doing both the extended and the short version. They are, in fact, already both modeled.

The paint kit will be what it is... however, given that the aircraft doesn't have that many paint types... it should be fairly easy to deal with.

FYI, it's not likely it will be released this year... Sadly.

Nice to hear about the -30J and standard J being produced. Sorry to hear it is likely to slip into 2017, but that's the way these things go.

As for the paint kit, do the best you can-- while I agree most Js are "Gunship Gray", there are a few Js with camo (Kuwait comes to mind!).

This is a going to be a GREAT addition to the hangar-- as is the Mu-2, Beaver, etc., etc.!!!!

P.S. When you're out of F-8s, you're out of fighters....(just sayin!)

With you guys modelling a C-130J will there be additional external feature to cover other nations other than Canada? For example a refuelling probe for a Royal Air Force C-130j an -30j, also a KC-130j that is used buy Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. I hope these can be modelled. The aircraft looks fantastic so far

Sweet! I worked on C-130Es for 2 years. I had the Captain Sim one...it would always crash after about 45 minutes. I'm sure this version wont do that to me.

In keeping with your run with North American products, how about a Vigilante, Fury or Sabreliner? I'm also itchin' for a Cougar. (Thought V.S. might do one to go with their Panther, but...)

Hi Krazycolin,

sorry, I know my reply doesn´t answer your question, but it´s worth a try... :D

What about the Sukhoi T-50 PAK/FA? I know, it´s a russian stealth-fighter, but this warbird looks stunning!

I´d pay many many bucks to have this glorious aircraft in my P3D!

All the best to you

Would you consider developing the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey?
This would be a great addition to the sim world and would add realism to developing current campaigns. Providing an aircraft with both airplane and rotor craft capabilities would be awesome!

I imagine the Osprey is a programming nightmare
