    Default 😲US Air Force may remove 105mm cannon from AC-130 gunship

    🤔C'mon man I wonder who's bright idea is this.

    U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command confirmed to Defense News it is considering removing this howitzer-sized weapon, used to carry out punishing strikes on ground targets, from the aircraft as early as 2026. The idea comes as the service rethinks how it will use the heavily armed gunship following the end of the Afghanistan War and amid a greater focus on America’s top adversary, China.

    Is the 105mm really that outdated?

    No, it is really that effective!
    Same reason the A-10 is being replaced with a hugely more expensive F-35 that cannot do the job!
