Within the scope of the Erciyes Project carried out by the Defence Industry Agency (SSB), the eleventh C-130 aircraft was modernised and delivered to the Air Force Command (TurAF). The avionics modernisation of 19 C-130 aircraft is carried out within the framework of the project undertaken by Turkish Aerospace and TurAF. At the same time, the fully analogue cockpit is converted to digital, and the aircraft switches to the fly-by-wire system.
