No pushback possibile on C-130

Hi, a message to all controllers: there’s no possibility to perform a pushback action with a C-130. Please don’t ghost pilots: the only choice we have is to immediately asking for taxi (bypassing the request for pushback). If controller tell us “pushback approved” we cannot do anything. Hopefully in my session I only got a “check tutorials for using ATC…” from ATC Manoel G (sorry, I was not able to find your name here in the community). Thanks for your understanding.

Actually, you pushback with the C-130 using reverse thrusters.
