The modernization involves five aircraft and the first C-130 was modified by L-3 last April.

FAdeA took 18 months to complete the job on C-130, # TC-61. All three other C-130s will be upgraded between now and 2019.

Fadea notes the initial contract took 18 months to complete, and included training services for Argentine technicians. Argentina plans to add 20 years of service life for all five of its C-130 aircraft.
