Seen here firing IRCM flares at night this Lockheed AC-130H Spectre Gunship is an extensively modified version of the Lockheed C-130. It is armed with two 20mm Vulcan cannons that can fire up to 2500 rounds per minute each, one 40mm Bofors cannon set to fire 100 rounds per minute and one 105mm Howitzer.

The AC-130H is air refuelable and can loiter on station almost indefinitely with tanker support.
