    The Lockheed L-100 Hercules was the Lockheed Corporation's less successful civilian variant of the prolific C-130 military transport aircraft. Its first flight occurred in 1964.A Lockheed L-100 Hercules cargo plane. PAF induct Lockheed L-100 aircrafts in 1966 from PIA.

    FM17 as far as I know the L-100 had some changes in the internal configuration but no changes externally.

    I think PAC should have selected the C-295 for license production for PAF and like produced 11 of such machines in 3-5 years and may be more if they are able to gain more orders, and this is only possible when they have modified it with some of their own choice of modifications.

    Y-9

    The first Y-9 prototype (#941) is shown here parked at CFTE airfield. The design was first unveiled at the 11th Beijing Airshow in September 2005. Y-9 is the next generation medium-size and medium-range transport aircraft to replace the obsolete Y-8 transport aircraft. It appears to have superseded the earlier Y-8-X project (initially dubbed Y-8U?). The aircraft features a stretched cargo cabin which can quickly load/unload maximum 20t containerized cargo, or airdrop 13.2t equipment or 98 paratroopers. It also has a 4-crew cockpit featuring 6 color MFDs and EFIS. The aircraft is equipped with advanced communication, navigation, radar, EGWPS, collision avoidance systems to ensure safe flight under all weather conditions. Similar to the Y-8 "Category III Platform", Y-9 is powered by 4 WJ-6C turboprops (rated @ 5,100ehp each) with JL-4 6-blade propellers made of composite materials, which improve its high temperature and high altitude performance. It also has solid nose and tail cone housing a weather radar and other electronic equipment. An EO turret (containing FLIR/TV) is mounted underneath the nose for all weather/low altitude operation. Its horizontal tailplanes have additional samll vertial stabilizers intalled as well to improved its stability at low speeds. Some specifications: max TO weight 65t, max payload 20t or 106 paratroopers, 15t payload range 2,200km, max range 5,000km, max level speed 650km/h, cruise speed 550km/h, service ceiling 10,100m, cruise altitude 8,000m. The development of Y-9 started officially in October 2005 and the construction of the first prototype (tail and head sections) started in 2006. However the project appeared to have been halted in 2007 due to shifting the production to the high priority High New series as well as Y-8C transport aircraft. The development of Y-9 resumed in late 2008 after the two year delay and the first prototype was thought to have made its maiden flight on November 5, 2010.

    Pakistan - Air Force C-130E Hercules (L-382) at Pardubice, Czech Republic, January 25, 2007

    Has any one ever seen so many AWACs typo communication antennas under Fuselage of any PAF C-130 before. This is one strange looking bird. I guess it is converted for ELINT/ECM purposes, anyway shed some light Bros.
    here's an collection of this bird Photo Search Results | Airliners.net
