The C-130 Hercules is an aircraft that appears in Strikers 1945 III. It only appears in Stage 5 as an enemy aircraft.
The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed and built originally by Lockheed, now Lockheed Martin. Capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medivac, and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, and aerial firefighting. It is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide. Over forty models and variants of the Hercules, including a civilian one marketed as Lockheed L-100, operate in more than sixty nations.
- Since the game features all modern jets (including support and enemies), this is the only modern aircraft in the game with propellers.
- The C-130 also appears in the Beach Head series of first-person shooting video games, but contrary to its appearance in the Strikers 1945 series, the C-130 in the Beach Head series does not attack, preferring to deploy soldiers or items by parachute instead.
