Couldn't veiw it, but being in China may have something to do with it. But I've said before... the C-130 guship is the personification of "shock and awe" they were used quite often in Afgan when support was needed and I owe my life to at least one of those planes.

I believe the Taliban's translation of this aircraft was "hell from above".

"Death from above?" I believe I've seen that and yes, it is awesome.
In fact, I think the Military channel did a special on it a few weeks ago.

To those that don't know what a C-130 gunship is, allow me to explain a bit. Imagine a very large aircraft circling your position and pounding you with mini-guns and grenade launchers. At night you can see the tracers and explosions. It is a constant bombardment, garunteed to kill or make any enemy retreat in horror.

It actually has three major guns on board (which three depends on the model):

I've only been privey to enter 1 C-130 gunship. Basicly a side door hatch opens (with this model) it employed 2, 50cal miniguns, and 1 grenade launcher , launching 1 per 2 seconds (could be off on the timing a bit)....either way, if you are under this aircraft your chance of survival in it's line of fire would be in the single digets.
