Today as I was going to work I saw a Marine KC-130J and a German AF C-160 on the transient ramp next to each other . I was shocked to see how similar they were in size. I thought the C-160 was much smaller, on the order of the C-27 Spartan.
This leads me to my question. How is the performance of the C-160 compared to the non J model C-130s? I know there is another thread asking which one would you choose, C-160 or C-130, but I'm not asking that. I'm just asking how it performs.
