The HC-130 Hercules

The Lockheed HC-130 Hercules is the Coast Guard's long-range fixed wing aircraft.  Its missions include search and rescue, law enforcement, drug interdiction, marine environmental enforcement, and international ice patrol, as well as personnel and material transport.   These aircraft also have the capability of air-dropping rescue equipment where necessary and appropriate.  HC-130Bs were first acquired in 1959, and are now all retired.  In 1964, the Coast Guard starting switching to the more capable HC-130H model, and has recently introduced the long range maritime patrol version, the HC-130J.  This new model has extended range capabilities versus the H model, and improved navigation and search avionics.

The US Coast Guard currently operates 27 of the HC-130H variant,  with plans for six of the new HC-130Js.  These new aircraft are "missionized" for long-range surveillance assignments, and can also provide transport and supply missions for maritime safety and security teams, port security units, and National Strike Force teams.
