In this week edition of #PlanePorn we present a plane that needs very little introduction, the Lockheed Martin AC-130, the gunship of all gunships! It is a version of the C-130 transport plane. The airframe is by Lockheed, but the conversion is completed by Boeing. The first flight was in 1966 after years of development following the retiring of the AC-47. The plane is heavily armored and packs an unrivaled punch. On board it has: 1x 30 mm ATK GAU-23/A auto cannon, 1x 105 mm M102 Howitzer, weapons system with launch tube for AGM-176 Griffin missiles and/or GBU-44/B Viper Strike munitions (10 round magazines), and wing mounted, AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs (SDBs) and/or GBU-53/B SDB IIs (4 per hardpoint on BRU-61/A rack). As you can see, with this loadout the AC-130 delivers a major punch and is a great ground attack weapon!
