This signifies a pivotal step from the developmental phase to the production phase, with a focus on deploying the upgraded aircraft to the warfighter. The C-130H is undergoing avionics updates, introducing a proven, cost-effective solution designed to enhance mission reliability and reduce pilot workload.

The AMP INC 2 program is focused on providing a substantial avionics upgrade to maintain the continued operational effectiveness of the C-130H, ensuring readiness for various missions. The modernization efforts aim to equip the C-130H with advanced capabilities to enhance operational effectiveness across different scenarios.
