JYAI C-130T's - United States Navy version2

Post by John Young »

What I thought would be a quick infill project while I was awaiting the final bit of the KC-10A packages, was actually a tad more involved. It started as a simple request by Steve (swp53) to modify my C-130H model to reflect a US Navy C-130T that routes through his local airport quite regularly. I was really happy to do that, and as it turned out, a little bit more, as thanks for the great work that Steve has done with the flight planning in the KC-10A packages.

It actually involved creating two additional C-130 models, modified flight plans and also a lot of repainting. The work updates the “Repaint Lockheed Martin C-130T - United States Navy (JYAI)” package from Brent Newman and myself, that was uploaded in August 2019. 27 aircraft, and corresponding flight plans are now included from the same US Navy VR-53, VR-54, VR-55, VR-62 and VR-64 squadrons.

Even though the previous package is only 2 years old, 3 significant changes have occurred, that have been included in the new package:

- The C-130T aircraft, that were represented by JYAI “H” models, have since been fitted with NP2000 8-bladed propellors. This is the new model:

- 2 KC-130T tankers have been transferred from VMGR-452 (US Marine Corps) to VR-64. It is expected that these aircraft will have the in-flight refuelling facilities removed and be repainted in the US Navy colour scheme. It is not known if these aircraft will also be given 8 bladed propellors:

- One C-130T-30 aircraft (the stretched variant), represented by my CC-130H-30 model, is now operated by each of VR-53 and VR-55:

The two new models add to the collection already available. Re-painters now have the further choice of a C-130T with 8 bladed props and a KC-130T with 4 bladed props.

The package, which is a jointly for FS9 and FSX/P3D, has been sent for inclusion in the Download Hangar, along with a paint kit for the two new models. As always please allow time for the files to be processed and made available.

Outstanding work as always and more Hercs to add in. Just looking over the models as I fly through Reno NV real world seeing the NV ANG with the shiny new props on their H models and contemplating moving the paints over to the inaccurate shorty J models in sim (6 blade vs. 8 blade). Both NV and WY units have most props converted. I just need to figure out painting the remaining USMC squadron and as mentioned above give -452 new KC-130Js.

I'll let you figure those ones out Chris, but let me know if you are stuck for a particular configuration.

Do textures from the the older JYAI C-130's work with these new models? I have paints for VX-20 and some of them would be better represented using these new models.

I think you are probably OK. The prop blades might be the only doubt, but just try it and see how it goes.

I tried using the new models with the old paints, I installed three of them. Two of them work real good (they use the new KC-130T model) but the third one I haven't seen in the sim so I don't know if it works or not (The one I haven't seen uses the 8 blade prop model).

I haven't seen the one plane in the sim because I use P3D v5.2 and I don't have any scenery or a AFCAD for KNHK. (I had to go to other airports to see the or two C-130's that work fine).

Just wanted to let you know that I saw the plane I installed with the new 8 blade props and they work and look just fine. So if you want to install the older JYAI C-130 textures on these new models go ahead they work just fine.
