AC-130U Spooky -NV off- by Panzerfire AC-130U Spooky -NV off- by Panzerfire
Remember this one?: [link]

Same work... but night vision is off :D

A vector art of AC-130U Spooky of the US Air Force.

The original picture was a screenshot I took from a flight sim called YS Flight. I simply vectorized it :aww:

I also used cloud brushes from :iconredheadstock: and star brushes from :iconelestrial:

I made no changes to this (As a matter of fact the Night vision version was a color tweak of this work) and since I did promise to upload this back then, I see no reason why I shouldn't :)

One thing I should have done as to make the fire effect brighter. But bah... Old project. Gott move on with my current ones shouldn't I? ;)

Speaking of that... I am still working on :iconvampiregrace:'s request. I'm currently vectorizing the aircraft that will be included. I'm not sure if I'll be done with it today but I'm sure that by tomorrow early or later will be finished :)

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

BRING THE RAIN OF FIRE AND LEAD TO THE ENEMY FROM UP HIGH AND SCORE THE HITS AND SEND THEM TO HELL!

Friend of mine who said that to signal an ACU-130 incoming to the battlefield and also to the one that saved his team in the fight. Now he is in another area and still calls on those planes and his spotting skills are to the point he is wanted on artillery units.

Love the image and seeing that thing fire at night is UNREAL!

100 klicks from Bagram Airbase, call sign "widowmaker" came in while we were chasing a some insurgents who fired into our base, we were told to back off and we saw it, it looked like lazer because of the tracer rounds ....nothing left ^^

how about an Il-76/A-380/747/An-124 into a big version of the beloved AC-130? :D with it it can carry more guns and ammunition.

of course! but there's only one such AN-225, unless Boeing decides to copy with License from Antonov.

Or Antonov re-makes their second An-225 (It's sitting in a hangar, slightly looted.)

kfirpanther3 Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2011
And some autocannons and howitzers. If a C-130 can do it, then a 747 cargo or even an IL-76 can do it.

:icongimiglider:
Gimiglider Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2011
agreed. And, let's face it, with those 2 supergiants as gunships, they can also, when firing at the enemy, paradrop troops into the battlefield....best combination ever.

LOL!
You're crazy! :XD:


But I think such thing is not done due to practicality issues. Most of those planes aerodinamics might be affected negatively if cannons and guns are added. Not to mention the extra costs of the basic airplane and the modification it'd need to support a combat platform.

:iconkfirpanther3:
kfirpanther3 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011
well the Il-76 had 2x23 Autocannons on its rear, so it is possible to install the same armanents as that of the AC-130. :D not to mention its just a concept. but if it did really work, they should try it on other airplanes, like the C-5 galaxy.

Well, there's probably a good reason why they didn't make gunship versions of those planes. ;) You gotta ask the USAF for the answer 'though because I'm clueless. ;P
