Cobra27, The BUFF is a bomber, not a transport. I'm going to say the Herk was designed from the start with external tanks

The C-130 is turboprop not purely jet.

Fly15-you are correct, nice job. The rest of you are now burdened with answering another question. What kind of external tanks were they-Hint:They aren't drop tanks.

That's a negatory Hummer. Are you familiar with the aircraft?

I don't know the exact name of them but they seem to run through the wing root, in the center of each wing.

They are permanently attached streamlined fuel tanks at mid span of each wing.

Flight152,
That is correct. This type of tank design, not often seen on US aircraft, is called a "slipper tank." Thanks for the answer!
