If I was on the ground, lost and the HC-130 above me, I would like it, as it is a search and rescue version of the C-130.

The gunship is the AC-130 version. That is a nasty one, indeed.

It is a common military transport plane and the backbone of the transport wing of many airforces. There are several versions, besides SAR and gunship also AWAC, Electronic warfare and tanker versions. A versatile aircraft.

And mind you they are not that dang comfortable to be ferried in to say the least! Did 4 4hr flights in the back of an old C-130H in the mid 90's and they are loud (earpro needed), cold, cramped (mixed pax and cargo load) and the toilet facilities leaves lots to be wanted (think pee tube and a portaloo with no privacy)

Well, it is intended to move troops around, not demanding customers. You would have liked the VC-130H more I think - the VIP C-130!

It will also be better then this low cost plane I expect:

What a waste of taxpayers money. Did a quick google search and none of the articles mentioned the advantages of laser weapons..... So, it is just cool?
