Lockheed AC-130 gunship adalah varian pesawat serang darat yang terbang tinggi (high wing) dengan senjata mesin berat digerakkan oleh mesin turboprop. Pesawat ini merupakan pengembangan dari pesawat pengangkut C-130 Hercules.

Dasar badan pesawat diproduksi oleh Lockheed, sedangkan Boeing bertanggung jawab atas konversi ke fungsi tempur dan dukungan pesawat. AC-130 menggantikan AC-47 Gunship yang digunakan selama Perang Vietnam.

    • AC-130 aja cuma bawa tiga senjata bung, 100 mm, 40 mm dan 25 mm. Untuk menghajar target berat (bangunan/kendaraan lapis baja dll) lebih efektif menggunakan kaliber besar. Sedangkan kaliber 40 mm dan 25 mm cocok untuk menghajar musuh yang posisinya terbuka. Dan harus diingat gunship ini harus terbang tinggi untuk menghindari RPG dan senjata anti pesawat lainnya. Plus gunship harus mempunyai kemampuan FLIR (Forward Looking Infra Red) dan melihat dalam segala cuaca (siang/malam). Gunship bisa menjadi mata dan pembuka jalan bagi pasukan infantri.

      Untuk menghadapi gerakan separatis di dalam negeri yg berlarut larut, saya rasa sudah waktunya TNI memiliki alutsista sejenis gunship. Syukur2 kalo gunship itu adalah produksi dalam negeri. Saya yakin PT. DI dan Pindad mampu mewujudkannya.

  1. Merdeka tapi masih separo yang separo setengah terjajah .
    Kalo mau merdeka penuh jagan takut perang

    Berani perang harus yakin menang

    Supaya menang persiapkan segala perlengkapan berapapun biayanya

    Karna kalah perang berarti kemusnahan

    Terampas harta,terampas anak ,terampas istri,terampas harapan

    Cuma satu jawabanya . untuk pertahanan jangan pelit anggaran .

    Jangan takut miskin asalkan merdeka danbseharusnya nyawapun dilarang disayang demi kemerdekaan

  2. Airbus and ATK to develop C295 gunship version for Jordan

    Airbus Defence and Space has signed an agreement with King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) and ATK for conversion of a C295 tactical transport aircraft into a gunship version for Jordan.
    Signed at the ongoing Eurosatory 2014 in Paris, the agreement will see the companies working together to develop an AC-295 gunship version for the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF).
    The configuration is expected to be based on the AC-235 light gunship, which features integrated mission and fire control systems, electro-optical and radar sensors, Hellfire missiles, ATK-built side-mounted M230 30mm chain gun, an integrated defensive suite, as well as 2.75in guided rockets.
    Airbus Military Aircraft commercial head Antonio Rodriguez Barberan said the agreement will result in a cost-effective and powerful addition to the Jordan Armed Forces.
    Jordan Prince Feisal bin Al Hussein was quoted by DefenseNews as saying that the AC-295 gunship offers enhanced performance and endurance compared with other smaller aircraft, and also has an air-to-air refuelling capability.
    “The weapons are essentially the same but the bigger fuselage gives us greater flexibility for incorporating sensors and other systems,” Al Hussein said.
    The new gunship will join the two AC235 gunships delivered by ATK to RJAF during the 2014 Special Operations Forces Exhibition and Conference (SOFEX), held in May in Amman, Jordan.
    A stretched derivative of the CN-235 transporter, the C-295 is designed to perform tactical airlift, search-and-rescue (SAR), maritime patrol and environmental surveillance missions.
    Capable of conducting short take-offs and landing on semi-prepared runways, the aircraft has a high-wing, rear-loader design that enables easy loading of mission pallets, passengers, cargo and litters for medical evacuation, communication and logistic duties or paratrooping operations.
    The medium-sized tactical airlifter has also been sold to Algeria, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Finland, Poland, Portugal and Spain.

  3. Maaf OOT 🙂

    Cuma mau berbagi cerita, Entah kenapa kemarin sewaktu ikut upacara peringatan HUT RI di puncak gunung Sorik Marapi yg ada di kab. mandailing natal, sumut ketika menyanyikan lagu kebangsaan Indonesia Raya bulu kuduk merinding, terharu. Hal ini terjadi juga sblmnya ketika di puncak gunung kerinci dan sinabung. Ketika berada di ketinggian ribuan meter, perjalanan sulit dan melelahkan upacara begitu khidmat. semakin menumbuhkan rasa cinta tanah air, tanah air Indonesia.
