From certain angles, this aircraft almost looks like a C-130, particularly the wing design.

An aircraft that is more than twice as effective as a C-130. It can carry 7200 gallons versus 3000 for the C-130. It can operate near lakes where fires are compared to airports that may be a hundred miles away.
