Does anybody know if the C-130J-30 has Air refueling capability?

The capability is there. Some of the special operations have it. Kind of like external tanks...the capability is there but the standard configuration is not equipped with them installed. The increased efficiencies of the RR engines allow internal fuel load to go longer distances. Granted externals add additional fuel for longer missions/legs but a considerable drag cost.
