KC-130J Harvest HAWK gets pressurized launcher

KC-130J Harvest HAWK crews no longer have to depressurize the aircraft and lower the cargo ramp to fire Griffin missiles as a new pressurized, standoff precision precision-guided munitions launcher has been installed.



Called the Derringer door, the modified KC-130J paratroop door allows the crew to load, launch and reload standoff precision-guided munitions while the aircraft remains pressurized.
