    Very cool, but I would hazard a guess that you would need complete air superiority over a battlefield before you can deploy a C130 in the air?

    As far as I know they have never lost one. It has been in use for very many years. Seen a video where they hit a moving vehicle. Interestingly all casings are collected.

    What I meant that they are not discarded out. I assume as the guns are internal easier to collect that drop out.

    During the 2nd WW Finland was short of everything. Casings were valued. So somewhere along the road soldiers were promised leave for casings. Where they could get them? From the enemy. Sneaked night time to get them.

    Morning did some flying in Afganistan based in Kandahar some years ago. Those gunships was based there. The shooting range was near the base .Some nights they did training , most of the time early morning. To wake up with that sound even you know was friendly was not nice. The first couple of times you didn’t know what to do until you get used to it.
