African Infantryman of the Year

That doesn't look like a C130 they're lobbing from, but for the life of me I can't think what else it could be.
CH46/7? Might be CASA212/235 as well but I'm leaning towards the helo.

Whatever it is, any training went out the window the minute they boarded.

Transall C160 I reckon. Saffie Air Force flies them. Think C130 baby brother with only 2 engines.
 
SAAF haven't had one working for 20 years.

Still reckon it's a Chinook. Anything with proper propwash would have them going off the ramp arse over tit even worse than the way they were flopping about there. Ramp also looks a bit small to be C160.

Doesn't look like a CH47:

Construction of the airframe's wrong.
 
Ah, that was the image I was referring to. Apologies.

Just had a look at the clip and it's possibly a C27J.

Yep. It's a 235. Burkina Faso uses them.
