Peru may acquire two ex Spanish Air Force KC-130Hs

Early September 2020, we reported that the Ejército del Aire (EdA, Spanish Air Force) was shedding its Hercules transporters and tankers in the advent of the arrival of more Airbus A400Ms.

Apart from two aircraft acquired by Uruguay, Peru has also voiced interest in obtaining a pair of KC-130H Hercules. Pilots of the Fuerza Aerea del Perú (FAP, Peruvian Air Force) have been training at Zaragoza air base (Spain) as the cockpit layout differs from the FAP L-100s.

No formal confirmation about any contract has been forthcoming though ...
