The AC-130J is the fourth generation gunship replacing the aging SOF fleet of 37 AC-130H/U/W gunships. AC-130 gunships have an extensive combat history dating to back to Vietnam where gunships destroyed more than 10,000 trucks and were credited with many life-saving close air support missions. Over the past four decades, AC-130s have deployed constantly to hotspots throughout the world in support of special operations and conventional forces. In South America, Africa, Europe and throughout the Middle East, gunships have significantly contributed to mission success.

The AC-130J is a highly modified C-130J aircraft that contains many advanced features. It contains an advanced two-pilot flight station with fully integrated digital avionics. Additionally, the AC-130J is modified with a precision strike package, which includes a mission management console, robust communications suite, two electro-optical/infrared sensors, advanced fire control equipment, precision guided munitions delivery capability as well as trainable 30mm and 105mm weapons.

This Spooky Ghost is the real deal and is hands down the most innovative plane in the game to date. It is loaded with a fully functioning 105mm Howitzer canon, two 30mm canon, an articulating Gatling gun, counter-measures, and gun cam’s as well as incredible aesthetic detail. It is my master piece, and I am afraid I peaked. I don't know if I can make a plane that'll beat this one in regards to innovation and features. But I'll certainly keep trying!

I want to thank everyone who has been sticking around with me and enjoying my planes! I truly appreciate your praise and feedback, and introducing me to some great lesser-known planes throughout history! But in the end, we need to remind ourselves that all the ratings and points are inherently meaningless, and are not what this game and community is about. I share my creations because I enjoy knowing that there are others out there that are having fun with replicas of their favorite plane, or are being inspired by and evolving the concepts and ideas that builders put forward. To me that's what the games about. So thank you for your support and making this game worth while!
