Not a WC-130J for two reasons. First, there are no external fuel tanks. Second, this is a "stretch" CC-130J, as it has the longer fuselage. The 815 Airlift Squadron flies the CC-130J out of Keesler.

The extra pods are fuel tanks...good timing from Google

Cont. from last....but this is a stretch. The "pods" being seen are the engines. The fuel tanks on a WC are between the engine pairs and would be seen too. The fuselage is also noticeably longer. Still a good shot from Google

Ahh okay. Thanks for the clarification :)

I always have to guess a bit and look at google image searches for identifications, and the only difference between the WC-130J and C-130J I saw was the fuel tanks between engines, and the right wing here looks like it has something between the engines (so 3 things on that wing). But, I'm nowhere near an expert so it's good somebody double checked.
