The AC-130U’s call sign is spooky but is more referred to as the angle of death. The AC-130 is also the worlds biggest flying artillery gun. The spectre has 4 Allison T56-A15 Turboprops search producing 4,500hp. The AC-130U was first introduced in 1955 and retired on March 20 2020. The only gun ships still flying are the AC-130J

About the build
My build of the AC-130U features rato (rocket assisted take off) this is not used on the gunship but the build needed something cool.
All the guns can move and all feature a camera that moves with the gun. The 25mm Gatling gun is custom build using cannon and will spin when fired.the plane also features a auto orbit system so you can focus on taking out the desired target.
