They are specially modified to perform their missions and are equiped with avionics and systems that normal C-130 Hercules are not outfitted with. Initial plans were that the MC-130H Combat Talon II would replace the MC-130E Combat Talon I, but demand for their capabilities is so great that these plans were cancelled and now both types fly missions.

The ramps and aft doors are modifed to allow air-dropping of personnel and material at normal cruise speed, which is significantly faster than the slow speed normal C-130's need to fly.
