C130 Push Back

When flying the C130 can you call for taxi straight from start as there is no pushback feature? ATC at KPHX refused to let me
Taxi just now and kept telling me to “check forums for assistance”

Hey! Technically, you can use the reverse thrust to pushback that way but you should be able to taxi straight out of the gate. ATC shouldn’t have given you that command, do you know the name of the controller? You can shoot them a message.

I encourage you to PM @Andrew_Coward to get this worked out. Thanks!

I’ve never flown the C130 so I wasn’t sure rather it pushed back or not so I figured it did. Also it was a gate where you had to pushback which made me think it had pushback even more. My fault on misunderstanding.
