First C-5M Super Galaxy

Lockheed Martin has delivered the first of the upgraded C-5M Super Galaxy. This is a the result of a two-phase modernization effort of existing C-5B’s. The first and ongoing phase is the Avionics Modernization Program (AMP), which provides a state-of-the art glass cockpit and a digital backbone to support the RERP modifications. Forty-three C-5 aircraft have completed the AMP modifications. RERP is the second phase, which adds new GE CF6-80C2 commercial engines and 70 other enhancements or replacements of major components and subsystems.
