Fuel Calculation

I was about to start a flight from AT 17 to vomm ,
but confused on how much fuel to fill.
can the aircraft even make the long distance flight.,

Aircraft: Lockheed Martin C130
please, can anyone help me

Yes. the tank is decently big. The c130 can go far but very slowly

so how much fuel should i take and what altitude would make it efficient

How far is the flight

5781 nautical miles

Use around 90% of your fuel. Should be around 12 hrs if i’m correct

Here’s a rundown of the fuel from http://fuelplanner.com/index.php

fuel: 26898 kg(90%) nearly 54147 pounds
will see if it works
thanks for your time
