Tata and Lockheed Martin’s Joint Venture Achieves Milestone

The 50th C-130J Super Hercules empennage assembly was delivered by Tata Lockheed Martin Aerostructures Limited (TLMAL) recently. TLMAL is a joint venture between Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) and Lockheed Martin Aeroframe Corporation.
 
TLMAL was established in 2010, with production of C-130J Super Hercules airframe components beginning in late 2011. TLMAL works towards achieving Government of India’s “Make in India” objectives, and is the single global source of C-130J empennage assemblies included on all new Super Hercules aircraft produced in the U.S.
 
Empennage assemblies produced by TLMAL include the aircraft’s horizontal and vertical stabilisers along with leading edges and tip assemblies. The TLMAL team also has manufactured 28 sets of C-130J centre wing box components that include the front and rear beam assemblies, formers and trailing edge sections.
 
The C-130J Super Hercules is the proven standard in tactical airlift, providing a unique mix of versatility and performance to complete any mission, anytime, anywhere.

It is the current variant of the C-130 Hercules, which has been in production for more than 60 years. More than 2,500 C-130s (legacy models and C-130Js) have been delivered to 63 customers currently operating out of 68 countries. The Indian Air Force operates a fleet of five C-130J-30s and has ordered an additional six Super Hercules.
 
To date, all 50 empennages and 28 centre wing box components have been delivered on or ahead of schedule.
