The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft built by Lockheed. It is featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and briefly in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and Call of Duty: Ghosts. It is briefly mentioned in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareEdit

The cutscene for "Ultimatum" shows Bravo Team performing a HALO jump into Russia from a C-130.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit


The C-130 is seen in the following campaign missions:


  • There is a crashed C-130 located in the center of the map Afghan.
  • In Multiplayer, it delivers the four crates dropped in an Emergency Airdrop and it cannot be shot down or destroyed by an EMP.


Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit

The C-130 is seen in the following campaign missions:

  • In "Operation 40", the Op 40 have to escape in a C-130 through heavy gunfire on the airfield. After the plane begins to show damage on the runway, Mason jumps off the plane to take out trucks blocking the end of the runway, allowing it to take off.
  • In "S.O.G.", during the invasion of Khe Sanh, a landing C-130 is destroyed, almost killing Hudson and injuring the team.
  • In "Crash Site", the Russians use a C-130 to transport a load of Nova 6, which is later shot down by CIA. Although SOG reach the crash first, the hull is hit by a Spetsnaz Hind, causing the front to fall down a small cliff, injuring the team.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

  • The C-130 is seen transporting American troops to Europe in response to the Russian invasion during a cutscene.
  • There is a crashed C-130, similar to the one in the map Afghan, in the mission Goalpost, but without the digital camo from the Afghan C-130.
  • Juggernaut pointstreaks (Juggernaut and Juggernaut Recon) in Multiplayer are delivered by a C-130.
  • In the game mode Drop Zone, the C-130 is used as a transport to drop of a few care packages even though there is no such thing as emergency airdrop in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
  • In mission "Iron Lady", a C-130 can be briefly seen dropping troops.


Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

"This baby, it shits out a film canister 12 miles up, then a C-130 comes by and... pfft... snags it at about 30,000 feet"
— Frank Woods

The C-130 is briefly mentioned by Frank Woods in opening cutscene to level Pyrrhic Victory. However, the plane seen is a C-17 with propellers instead of turboprop engines. It can also be seen flying around the map during the mission Suffer With Me.

Call of Duty: GhostsEdit

At the beginning of the mission "The Hunted", the Ghosts are seen in a C-130 with Rorke held captive.


  • In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer, during the Emergency Airdrop killstreak, if the player looks at the back of the plane as the C-130 drops the crates, the player can see the crates spawn behind the plane.
  • The C-130 in multiplayer is not a solid object, as a Predator Missile will fly right through it.
  • Even though it is clearly a C-130 crashing in the campaign mission "Exodus", Dunn calls it an AC-130 instead.
  • The C-130 in multiplayer that is used for the Emergency Airdrop killstreak is a reskinned and resized AC-130, retaining its outer guns.
  • In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, in the map Outpost, there is an unfinished C-130 close to the Spetsnaz spawn.
