just saw a report on the new about the replacement airplane for the BAF. The BAF lost one last year in a fire at Sabena techics( at EBBR ). The replacement is a former USAF hurricane hu!nter, tha was sold to evergreen in the beginning of the '90s. According to the news, the plane was bought for $15m and will be upgraded to meet the standard of the other Belgian C-130s ( probably $5m)

No chance to get an H-model from somewhere? One E-model in a fleet of 10 H-models seems a bit odd. Well let's hope it can to sustain until 2018 when the A400M arrives.

I think that there wasn't such a model available for there budget. As I said, the will upgrade it to the same level as the other 10
