Default AC130 Specter gunship smoke the Enemy Video

Iraqi Nights
The pictures were taken from an AC130 Specter gunship two and a half miles away. The weaponry fired was an electronically controlled 40mm cannon. The guys in the picture are setting up a roadside bomb and planning to ambush an American convoy which came along a short while after the pictures were taken.

THAT is one bad ass weapon. Are you sure it was an AC130 though? It seemed like it was hovering.

On point sadlz. A little checking suggests it was an AH-64 Apache helicopter gunship. It's a 30mm chain gun and that video is almost five years old. the video may in fact be of an Apache engaging Afghans

It is a Apache helicopter engaging a few Al Qaedas in Iraq. What you will see is the 30mm automatic Boeing M230 Chain Gun that is located under the fuselage. It fires explosive rounds at a rate 625 rounds per minute. The magazine hold 1200 rounds. How would you like to try and hide from this??

Below is the link of the C-130 video at 2 miles out
