AC-130 Gunship in Action – Firing All Its Cannons • Exercise Emerald Warrior

Compilation with the AC-130 (AC-130H Spectre, AC-130U Spooky II, AC-130W Stinger II ) during conducting live fire missions during Exercise Emerald Warrior 2011 – 2016.

► Emerald Warrior is a U.S. Special Operations Command sponsored mission rehearsal exercise during which joint special operations forces train to respond to real and emerging worldwide threats.

► The Lockheed AC-130 gunship is a heavily armed, long-endurance ground-attack variant of the C-130 Hercules transport fixed-wing aircraft. It carries a wide array of anti-ground oriented weapons that are integrated with sophisticated sensors, navigation, and fire-control systems. Unlike other military fixed-wing aircraft, the AC-130 relies on visual targeting. Because its large profile and low operating altitudes (around 7,000 ft) make it an easy target, it usually flies close air support missions at night.

  1. People tend to focus on all the firepower this thing has but it was those cameras (and the guys running them) that really made it the GOAT. Most of the time getting air support meant a lot of dicking around back and forth to get everything set up. With these things half the time you'd ask for something and they'd already have seen what you were talking about and be set up and ready to go. The A-10 was the only fixed wing aircraft that even came close in terms of "user friendliness", at least in my limited experience.

  2. 사실상 치트키. 대공미사일 없으면 일방적으로 두들겨 맞아야 함. 전쟁나면 북한이 가장 두려워하는 무기. // 우리나라는 300km밖에서도 쏠수있는 대공미사일 회피형 한국형 AC-130을 개발하라
