The U.S. Air Force has issued a $7.3-million contract modification to Lockheed Martin to incorporate Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) NextGen Sensors on HC/MC-130J aircraft.

The modifications are scheduled for completion in 2015.

Additionally, Lockheed Martin announced the first delivery of a C-130J Super Hercules aircraft to an African country on Thursday. The Republic of Tunisia took delivery of its first C-130J, receiving the longer fuselage or “stretched” variant of the aircraft.

Resulting from a 2010 contract, Tunisia is scheduled to receive an additional C-130J from Lockheed by 2014.
