This educational video is structured to show the United States AC-130 strike operations in a secret location, engaging targets also of an unknown group. The AC-130 is manufactured by Lockheed Martin, and Boeing is responsible for the conversion into a gunship technology, and its heavily armed, being a long-endurance ground-support variant of the C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. Its very tough and is computer-controlled/assist on the wide array of anti-ground oriented ordnance that are integrated with sophisticated sensors, navigation, and fire control systems. The AC-130 relies on visual targeting, lasers and or triangulation using various forms of data. Because its large profile and low operating altitudes (around 7,000 ft) make it an easy target, it usually flies close air support missions at night, and can commonly engage multiple ground targets 6 miles away with decisive accuracy.
