Marshall will do Planned Maintenance Interval inspections, full aircraft repainting and specific overhaul tasks from this year on Kuwait’s three KC-130J - the extended-range tanker version of the C-130 Hercules transport aircraft modified for aerial refuelling.

Marshall ADG CEO, Alistair McPhee said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this US Government contract. Kuwait Air Force is a very important customer and we appreciate the trust the US Government have shown in our MRO capabilities,

“We continue to expand our international market share for C-130 support and I’m pleased to see the development of our relationship with NAVAIR and the US Government, following the contract for the replacement Fat Albert last year”.

Curtis Brooks, Tactical Airlift Program Office (PMA-207), Kuwait KC-130J Case Manager, said: “We are pleased to have Marshall as part of our team. We need a strong partner to support the Kuwait Air Force programme. We will be counting on Marshall!”

Kuwait purchased three KC-130Js through the US Government Foreign Military Sale process in 2014. The programme, including the support of the fleet, is managed by the US Navy through its Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

The Kuwait Air Force's KC-130Js provide aerial refuelling and a variety of other support missions to promote goodwill and stability in the Middle Eastern region.

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (Marshall ADG) is headquartered in Cambridge, United Kingdom, with production facilities in North Yorkshire in the UK and locations in Europe, Canada and the UAE.
