Rolls-Royce Gets $97M Air Force C-130J Engine Delivery Order

Rolls-Royce has received a $96.9 million delivery order for propulsion systems to support the U.S. Air Force’s C-130J Super Hercules transport aircraft sustainment efforts.

The service branch is obligating the full amount to cover option IV of the original contract, which has a cumulative face value of $66.7 million, the Department of Defense said Monday.

Work under the delivery order is slated to run through Jan. 31, 2022, and will take place at Robins AF Base in Georgia.

C-130J airlifters, manufactured by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), entered the USAF inventory in 1999 and are powered by Rolls-Royce AE2100D3 turboprop engines, according to the service branch.
