Here we have a Hercules variant- the EC-130 - the 'E' stands for 'Electronic'. It is one of eight variants of the EC and is operated by the 193rd Special Operations Wing of the Pennsylvania Air National Guard. The extra lumps on its tail and elsewhere are aerials. On this particular variant they transmit TV signals, sending propaganda to enemy TVs.
