Subject: Awsome video of C130 attack!
HYPOCENTER    10/15/2006 11:34:33 PM
I came across this post randomly, elsewhere on the internet, quote: "*****For anyone who wants to see just how effective the C-130 gunship really is......Then watch this: Its a video shot from the C-130, they spot terrorists planning an ambush...and from nearly 2 miles away they take em' out!!!" It has sound, so make sure you listen to it. Anyone know where I can find more videos like this?

Try these...
There are heaps out there, but these two sites are pretty good.
The second links directly to an Afghanistan video of said aircraft.

lol, i thought the same thing. The guy who originally posted said it was a C130 attack... but after watching it several times I'm not sure, and think it was a heilo. What's weird though is all the radio chatter. There's at least 3 or 4 guys on the radio talking... all as if they're all watching the same screen.

Another thing I thought was weird, was that the gun didn't sound like a vulcan canon C130s are supposed to be armed with.

Either way, its a great video... pretty dramatic... When I first watched it the 3rd guy was a complete surprise to me.

I'm pretty sure that was an Apache. I saw a similar video earlier this year that was labelled as an Apache attack and the sound of the chain gun was just the same as on this video. The scatter of shot and exploding ordnance looked the same too.

I just found my new favorite video:

**WARNING: Video contains graphic content, not for the feint of heart.**

My comments: The video is from this site and is titled "Iraqi w/RPG" with this description: "The lesson this young man never quite grasped is that you should not
shoot at United States Marines with an RPG.  They shoot back...and they
are very good shots.  They spend weeks at the rifle range under the close,
gentle tutelage of their Drill Instructors.  They learn their warfighting
skills well, as exhibited by this short clip.

The clip was filmed by an Italian film crew.  You can plainly see that
the enemy soldier had lots of friends and they were rather upset at the
outcome of this short engagement.

Note the excellent marksmanship and the interesting use of tracers."
