    C130J query

    Watched a C130J low flying up Loch Leven the other day and noticed the attachments sticking out of the side of the rear fuselage. Looks like some sort of electronic gubbins. Can somebody here enlighten me and satisfy my curiosity?

    DIRCM (= Directional Infrared CounterMeasures, aims a laser at the seeker head of an approaching infrared guided missile to blind and thereby defeat it) turrets AFAIK.
