R-013 Pylon Argentinean C-130 Hercules
Pylon and Support for Argentinean C-130 Hercules used during the Falklands War.
During the Falklands War, as the Argentinean Air Force (FAA) was in need of aircrafts of long distance exploration that also had combat and bombing capabilities. Is because of this that the engineers of the FAA adapted the C-130 Hercules, the only aricrafts that they had that could cover the needed distances at a safe range.
Hercules TC-68, that had the needed cables to modify it for bombing purposes, was adapted with connections to allow it to launch bombs from the pylons. An adaptor was made to allow the use of the Multiple Ejector Rack (MER), able to carry six 250 Kg. Expal bombs made in Spain. The system was installed in seven days.
Two Pylons per set
Scales: 1:48 & 1:72
