Great Big Camoflauged Airplane

Over the 7 months I’ve been in Shijiazhuang, I’ve seen this airplane parked at the airport 3 or 4 times. Today it showed up again. Usually it is under guard by a group of Chinese soldiers. A Chinese-built Mig was observed being loaded into it on its last stay here. What sort of military hardware will it be this time? And most importantly, am I giving away state secrets?

It is an Egyptian military aircraft, and yes, the DH told me what kind of plane it is but I don’t remember and I am not yet that big of an aviation nerd to know the name myself. (The registration SU is for Egypt.)

Update – It is a C-130
