Chris Gibson's forthcoming On Atlas' Shoulders includes material on the BAC-222, Tyne-powered STOL Hercules.  Probably the first time good data on this project has become available.

I did not know about this book Evan. A quick visit over to Secret Projects got me this topic: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,27277.0.html

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Another view of the tri-jet C-130:

Want to give your C-130 that Russian look?  Try the "Assault C-130" with new GE34 engines and the Hamilton Standard counter-rotating propellers:

Perhaps an auxiliary engine for each wing to provide bleed for blown flaps and ailerons, much as on Lockheed's ATTB variant of the earlier C-130 generation (I've also seen mention that the BAC.222 variant used auxiliary compressors driven off each Tyne for flap blowing).

You now have permission to build a Luftwaffe C-130J.

Germany has announced plans to purchase ‘between 4-6’ C-130J Super Hercules from Lockheed Martin.

It says the C-130Js will be used for ‘special operations support’ and that they will operate from airstrips ‘unavailable’ to the Airbus A400M Atlas.

The new aircraft will be ready for service from 2021 and they will be operated in co-operation with the French MoD.

The news comes as a serious blow for the Airbus aircraft, of which Luftwaffe has now received five  A400Ms.

The A400M currently offers only limited deployment capabilities, and has suffered from delivery delays. The Luftwaffe has also experienced engine problems and was scheduled to have received nine Atlas by the end of this year, from a total of 53 ordered.

I was so confused - I completely misread your post and thought it was about a new film by Mel...

Possible VTOL Hercules inspiration:


But smaller, that's the proposed production C-142.  Still, it would be interesting to see the same approach done to a C-130.  I wonder if you would need more powerful engines than the T56?  One thing the engines would need is an oil and drain system that would work in all attitudes of the engine (one reason the XV-15 used T53 engines was the work done to develop such a variant of the T53 for the XC-142 and Hiller X-18).

Yep - I was simply using as inspiration.

In my experience I find that certain images won't load at work, but will at home. It's a weird problem that means I'll need to visit some threads twice to see everything!
