I didn't beleive it until I saw it.
this is also the aircraft that dropped the MOAB (mother of all bombs) during Gulf War I.
It is almost impossible to see how the air force and ground forces of the West could manage without this aircraft.
It operates in, as you know, a gunship role as the AC-130. the 40mm bofors on the "spectre" were replaced with 25mm chain guns and i will get mot information on that variant.
