This is not an AC-130H, this is an AC-130A. In fact this isn’t just any “A” model, this is 53129, “The First Lady”. She was the very first production C-130 back in 1953 and later converted to AC-130A Spectre Gunship during Vietnam. She never had the 105mm howitzer like the AC-130H and AC-130Us carry.

Thank’s for your correction sir. ‘m so glad following your tumblr, make me know about Hercules more and more :)
