    Thats €0.87bn for the 5 aircraft, plus full simulator package, and all associated support infastructure. Given the expected time in service (based on the aircraft being replaced) that is great VFM.

    NZ Government has confirmed the acquisition of five Lockheed Martin C-130J-30 Super Hercules.

    These are the latest Block 8.1 aircraft which include additional ISR capabilities. Will arrive in 2024 and fleet IOC in 2025. The B752 replacement project starts next year with an IOC in 2028.
    What kind of ISR?

    Other than the MX-20HD and MIDS-Link 16 the only additional statement about the contract is "this purchase also includes sensors and performance improvements that will assist New Zealand during extensive maritime surveillance and reconnaissance as well as improve its search and rescue capability."

    Wonder how many C-130Js with ISR package the DF could have got instead of 4 PC-12s and 2 CN-295s

    €0.87 Billion for 5 aircraft for about 20 years is €8.7 mil per year per aircraft.

    Well the 4 PC12s and 2 C295s are costing € 258m not sure about the support package
