"The AC-130H Spectre and the AC-130U Spooky primary missions are close air support, air interdiction and armed reconnaissance. Close air support missions include troops in contact, convoy escort and point air defense. These heavily armed aircraft incorporate side-firing weapons integrated with sophisticated sensor, navigation and fire control systems to provide surgical firepower or area saturation during extended loiter periods, at night and in adverse weather."

-U.S. Air Force

In my mind (an in the minds of many others), the AC-130 is ranked alongside the A-10 as the coolest attack aircraft in service. This is for good reason. The AC-130 Spectre, a variant of the famed C-130 Hercules transport, is an airborne tank: it has a range of over 4,000 km, a top speed of almost 500 kph, and is packed with a 25mm Gatling cannon, a 40mm Bofors cannon, and a 105mm howitzer. Unsurprisingly, this aircraft with its massive amount of firepower has seen its share in pop culture, appearing in films such as Transformers and The A-Team.

Now, this aircraft has, in great detail, been brought to X-Plane! Based on the default C-130 by Javier Rollon, this model includes three guns mounted on the left fuselage, flares, and MANY changes to the texture to accurately reflect this aircraft. Thanks to:

-Javier Rollon and Laminar Research for giving me permission to use the default C-130 this aircraft is based on.

-Appster for allowing me to convert parts of his AC-130 to use as the gun barrels.

-Razorback_pilot for the 25mm gun object. I know, the one used on this aircraft has six barrels, while the real one has five. They look identical unless looked at closely, so I don't really care.

Its looking awesome on the sim. One of the best aircrafts for it, hope someone can make a 3D cockpit to it.
