    The asset is being transferred under U.S. foreign military financing activities.

    A total of five C-130Es are to be handed over through next year. The aircraft are being upgraded to prolong their useful life, with plans for 600 flight hours over 20 years.

    The aircraft will be used by the 14th air transport squadron at Powidz air base.
