    The C-130H2 NVG lighting kit will improve the lighting inside the C-130 for NVG operations. This kit will improve the safety of flying the C-130 H2 in NVG operational modes. It will reduce the amount of non-compatible light sources in the cockpit which can cause the goggles to reduce gain looking out through the cockpit windshield. The light will keep the instruments readable to the pilot when looking/glancing down through the goggles.
