[quote]That hit on the building at 0:20 in the video was one hell of a blast.[/quote] I'm assuming you're talking about the second building in the video. That was a single weapon. You can see the immediate explosion from the weapon and then a secondary explosion when the IED making material ins...

[quote]What altitude do they operate at?[/quote] AC-130s typically operate in the 15-20K foot regime. Of course they can operate outside of that, but that's their sweet spot. [quote]I assumed ISIS had pretty nonexistent anti-aircraft capabilities outside of light triple A.[/quote] MANPAD...

[quote]The 52's in particular were incredible, very flexible, and incredibly lethal [/quote] That's only grown with the integration of advanced targeting pods giving us the ability to lase our own LGBs and also derive our own coordinates for JDAMs and adding the GBU-38 500 lb JDAM to our arsenal....

[quote]Not really. [/quote] Yes really. The weapons in that video were all unguided 500 lb bombs. Using those might look cool on a video, but would be completely ineffective against the targets that were in the video I posted. If you look at the second attack in the video I posted, the weapon ...

re: BUFFs taking it to ISIS - FlyingTiger06
[quote]why not just use some AC-130's with 105's? Seems like it would be cost efficient for use against ISIS[/quote] Several reasons: 1) Can't get the same weapons effects 2) AC-130 is a very limited fleet and mostly support Special Ops only 3) AC-130s only operate at night due to their slow...
