Pretty much the flying fortress of death. The AC-130 Gunship is a modified version of the U.S. Air Force's C-130 Cargo airplane (hense the "C" for cargo)... With the "A" added on making it "Attack Cargo" (AC). Equipped with a Mini gun aka rail gun, for close support near or around friendlies or civilians, a 40mm gun... unleashing 40mm explosive rounds to raise some hell, and lastly the biggest bang for your tax dollars, the 105mm Howitzer cannon, firing a 105mm explosive round to decimate anyone who has the balls to mess with the U.S. Military. The AC-130 is also equipped with highly advanced technology systems, including thermal vision, heat vision, and even strobe programs to see friendly troops on the ground... there is no where to hide from certain death from above.
