Rolls Royce to Provide AF C-130 Support

RollsRoyceRolls Royce Corp. has won a $6, 659, 487 U.S. Air Force contract modification to provide power-by-the-hour support for Lockheed Martin-made (NYSE: LMT) C-130 planes.

The Defense Department said the company will support a foreign military sales agreement with India’s air force.

Work will occur at Hindan Air Station in New Delhi through Jan. 30 and Robins Air Force Base, Ga. is the contracting activity.

Norway asked in June 2012 to buy two C-130 jets from the U.S. government in a proposed $300 million sale, which would include parts and logistics support if Congress approves the transaction.

The U.S. agency responsible for the foreign military sales program said Norway wanted to use the planes for NATO and coalition missions.
