Watch Combat Footage Of An AC-130H Spectre Gunship Striking Insurgents In A Wooded Area Over Afghanistan
The U.S. Air Force AC-130H was retired from service and replaced by the U.S. Air Force AC-130J Ghostrider in 2013. But not before hitting lowlife scumbag terrorists in Afghanistan and all over the world. The AC-130 gunship is a heavily armed, long-endurance ground-attack variant of the C-130 Hercules transport fixed-wing aircraft that carries a wide array of anti-ground oriented weapons that are integrated with sophisticated sensors, navigation, and fire-control systems.
The AC-130H Spectre was loaded with two M61 Vulcan 20mm cannons, one Bofors 40mm cannon, and one M102 howitzer 105mm cannon. This video presents gun Camera footage from an AC-130H Spectre Gunship flying a combat mission over Afghanistan striking insurgents in a wooded area. The Gunship, providing close air support for “friendlies”, strikes with such force that it actually chops down a tree under which insurgents are taking cover.
