New Gunship Cannon in Test:

Boeing is in the midst of flight testing the new 30 mm cannons on the AC-130U Gunship at Hurlburt Field, Fla. Currently, Air Force Special Operations Command has asked Boeing to modify four AC-130Us with the new Bushmaster 30 mm cannons to give the Spookys greater standoff range and first-shot accuracy. (USAF announced the changeout of Bushmasters for the current 40 mm cannon and 25 mm gun earlier this year.)
