Quoting SchorschNG (Reply 2):
The C130 is weak in power, a general problem for props.
Not true at all. What makes you say that?
|Quoting Wingscrubber (Reply 7):|
Faster airplanes can get away with higher wing loading, thus smaller wings. The trade off will be that C-130 will still kick KC-390's ass when it comes to STOL, but it'll be left behind on longer routes.
|Quoting Spacepope (Reply 8):|
One could argue the wing of the C-130 IS the high-lift device, but with its (relatively) fixed shape, it's also the reason for its slow cruise speed.
