Last year, Timawa.net and other fora, were eagerly awaiting the reported arrival of an additional C-130H c/o an ex-Tunisian AF Herc that had suffered a runway mishap but had been refurbished by Derco Aerospace. The Timawa discussion for this project can be found here.
The wait was apparently for nothing. As per the latest DND Performance Monitoring Report, this deal had actually been cancelled.
