Just an FYI, but you may already know. Military aircraft use a registration number, or bureau number that includes the year the aircraft was ordered and a sequence number to the number ordered. Like your C-130....
64-0566. It was ordered in 1964, and was the 566 aircraft in that order sequence. Maybe someone with a better knowledge base can give a more definitive answer, but that is pretty close.
