Interesting that it was originally called the 'Super Hercules', love the 'lambda wing' model 260 too. ;D

From the Lockheed 476L Basic Proposal comes this 3-view drawing of the Lockheed-Georgia GL-268-1 military transport study, dated December, 1960.

These photos were just recently posted at the San Diego Air & Space Museum (SDASM) Archives' Flickr Commons site. The Convair/General Dynamics slides are labeled "System 476L", and are followed in sequence by a C-141 "class" mock-up which I presume to be (given the listed 1960 creation date) part of their C-141 proposal. Here are a few photos in the posted sequence.

San Diego Air & Space Museum (SDASM) Archives have added additional System 476L presentation slides to their Flickr Commons collection.

Here are a couple of the interesting configurations depicted.

A dual engine pod arrangement with four-wheel bogey landing gear housed in the wings' anti-shock bodies.

A swing-nose version with the cockpit in a raised hump above the main deck, 747-style ("Bow Loader Version").

And remember…remember the glory is not the exhortation of war, but the exhortation of man.
Mans nobility, made transcendent in the fiery crucible of war.
Faithfulness and fortitude.
Gentleness and compassion.
I am honored to be your brother.”
