SAAF looking at C-130, KC-390, C-295 and C-27J for airlift

South Africa National Defence Force has its eyes on two possible types to replace its ageing C-130BZ fleet.
SAAF is considering the C-130 or the KC-390 and the C-27J or C-295 to replace the C-47TP and probably also the C-212. .

  1. If they are not going to buy KC-130Js, then they should look strongly at the KC-390. There are a lot of operations in that part of the world where small, short, unimproved runways, or hastily constructed runways are all they have to use, in which case the C-27J is the perfect aircraft for the mission.
