Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has introduced civil-certified firefighting airtanker, its LM-100J "FireHerc" variant of the proven C-130J Super Hercules, which is the airlifter of choice for 18 nations around the world, the company said.

Lockheed Martin's LM-100J FireHerc builds on the C-130's proven and vital role in firefighting by dispersing retardant to contain and control fires in locations with complex terrain and compromised operating conditions.

The Hercules plays a vital role in firefighting by dispersing retardant to contain and control fires in locations with complex terrain and compromised operating conditions. The FireHerc's straight-wing design and turboprop power plant allows it to excel in supporting this challenging low-level, low-speed firefighting mission profile like no other large airtanker in operation.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 100,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
