That's a very shiny Herc!

I'm embarrassed. I couldn't read what nation's air force was painted on the side and didn't recognize the flag. It's Singapore. I used to train Singaporean C-130 guys at Clark AB, Philippines in the 80s. They also had a detachment of A-4s permanently rotating at Clark, I think I remember they were glossy too! Weird...

Yes, gloss paint. PITA for getting a sharp focus, especially at slow shutter speeds like this. 1/60th.

I think the high gloss finish is to help reflect the heat from tropical sun

Also they probably use them for show since Singapore's not a hot bed of conflict lately.

It's well-known that Singapore is meticulously squeaky clean (or at least tries hard
to be so).
It's logical to think that their Air Force aircraft would be also!
