This anonymous Argentinian Air Force Hercules landed today morning at SCL.



Any help with plane ID/registration will be highly appreciated!

The others on the db have slightly different camouflage patterns.

Hi Andrew,

Many thanks for your reply. However, if you look closely at the badges in front of the front door they are slightly different. Also, TC-69 is a KC-130, and I suspect (but don't know for sure) the one in my picture is a regular C-130H. I know there are some other C-130H of the Argentinian Air Force with no pictures in the DB.

Any help from our Argentinian photogs?

Yes, the badges are different... the ones on your photo are more colourful. Given that no registration is obvious on the nose I'd guess it's had a respray and new badges applied.

KC130s can have the outer tanks removed as TC-70 shows here.

Indeed pure guesswork given that:

Unfortunately, you can only upload it with no reg.

Hi Andrew and Peter,

Well, after searching all over the web and looking at countless Argentinian Herc pictures, I have to say that Andrew was not wrong at all!

So, all the Argentinian cammo Hercs have subtle differences in the paint scheme, and only TC-69 shows some distinct features:
- Rudder seems taken from another plane (slightly different cammo scheme and washed-out paint)
- Roundel is in exact same position behind door (some do not have one at all, others in front of said door)
- Metal panel around APU exhaust is in bare metal (others are painted)
- Brown spots of cammo are exactly the same (all others are different)
- All these little metal spots on fin are the same both in number as in position

For me that's enough to conclude that "my" Herc is TC-69!

Many thanks for your help !

Hi EZEIZA (difficult to guess your location Big grin ),

Actually it cannot be TC-66, as its paint scheme is completely different than the one in my picture. I mean it is similar "SE Asia" cammo, but very different in the details I outlined in my last reply. Only TC-69 is a match, with the only difference of the batches, but these could have been easily re-applied lately.

Thanks anyway for your help!

Apparently you´re right, it is TC-69. Maybe with some modifications. Check this pic:

I´ll check if I find anything else (I´m waiting for a reply on an Argentine forum).
Hope it helps.

Cheers!
