What about the C-130 Hercules having a Antonov An-32-type high engine nacelles arrangement above wing incorporated to allowed for larger diameter propellers to be fitted, so as to give an even better STOL capability??😯

Anyone up to having a crack at drawing a profile of this configuration?

One might get a close approximation of that by fitting a P-3 wing to a C-130.

Yet another nose job for the C-130.



Lockheed Martin has released a video showing one of the first MC-130J Commando II special operations transports equipped with the Raytheon AN/APQ-187 Silent Knight terrain-following/terrain avoidance radar.

Full story is here: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/28048/mc-130j-special-ops-transports-are-finally-getting-this-terrain-following-radar-they-badly-need

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

Reminiscent of a Lockheed proposal I remember seeing at the 1972 Turin Air Show.

Are those Harrier fuselages for engines on the vector thrust herc?

From the build thread:

I will cast 4 resin vectored thrust Pegasus engines using the mid body of a Harrier.  Sadly a Harrier has been sacrificed- chopped of the wings, nose and tail. Re-positioned the side intakes to form a single intake

Nice, though if I remember correctly (after 47 years) the back ends of the nacelles were rounded off like those on the Do-31.
