The Lockheed AC-130 gunship is a heavily armed, long-endurance ground-attack variant of the C-130 Hercules transport fixed-wing aircraft. It carries a wide array of anti-ground oriented weapons that are integrated with sophisticated sensors, navigation, and fire-control systems. Regardless of their project names the aircraft were more commonly referred to by the squadron's call sign 'Spectre'. Although the Company provided equipment for the original Gunship it is believed that the only equipment now on board is the Air Data Computer. This is an embroidered sew-on badge portraying the aircraft in action firing the sideways cannon.
