Do we know which variant of the Mi-24?  An "A" model would be ideal.

No clue regarding the C-130 and Mi-24. I do hope they'll also release a 1/144 version of whatever Hercules they have planned.

Predicting Zvezda's 1/48 Hind schedule is a bit dicey, as they haven't released much in that scale, let alone a family of kits. If the do a Hind-A, it will probably be somewhere down the line, I think. My money would be on a Mi-24V/VP for starters (as in their 1/72 line), followed by a Mi-24P sometime later. They really took their time releasing the Mi-24P in 1/72 and released a Mi-35M and the Mi-24A in between. With some clever sprue breakdown, those two should also be doable in 1/48 without too much effort.
Cheers,
Moritz

Turns out it is a Mi-24V/VP "Hind-E" with the twin barrel 23mm gun turret:




Hopefully they do other versions based on this kit including a Hind-A.

Hmmm. I guess the CAD pictures only show the Mi-24VP variant with the twin 23mm turret. Since the kit's designation is Mi-24V/VP, I'd say the kit also includes parts for the - way more common -  Mi-24V with the 12.7mm gatling turret. I'd be really surprised if it didn't. AFAIK, the turrets are the only difference between the V and the VP.

Nice pic, BTW. Interesting colour. Or lack thereof....  8)

It would appear the new tool 1/72 C-130 will be a J model. 

This website, https://nowosci.plastikowe.pl/aktualnosci/zapowiedzi-2020-2021-zvezda/, now shows an image of a J.

Do not rejoice from the roof top until you can actually confirm it as new tooling.  There have been many past collaborations between Italeri with other model companies so it just might turn out to be an Italerir model in a new Zvezda box.

Sadly, today's Italeri are quite well-known for these shenanigans. They've re-badged, re-boxed and re-released more than a few old tool kits so they appear fresh and shiny but in the end you're lucky to get new decals. And even the quality of said new decals is often sub-par.

Caveat emptor and best of luck!

I looked at the Scalemates linage of all C-130 kits here https://www.scalemates.com/products/product.php?id=134886&p=timeline
and there are only four New Tool entries:
  • Airfix in 1971
  • Italeri in 1983
  • ESCI/ERTL in 1990
  • Zvezda in 2020
All other kits are listed as New Parts, New Box, New Decals or Rebox. Given there are 15 C-130 box brands, many are naturally reboxes.

The first listed C-130J is from Italeri in 1995. It is described as: Rebox (Updated/New parts). It would appear that this is Kit "zero".
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/italeri-061-c-130j-hercules-ii--134886

The Zvezda C-130 is now listed as a New Tool. It is not connected to any other kit at this time. Once the kit is released I am sure someone will determine the pedigree.  So we just wait and see.
