Philippine Air Force to Acquire Old AC-130W Gunship from U.S. Air Force

Another refurbished C-130H Hercules will be adopted into the Philippine Air Force, acquired from the United States, several social media sources said on February 4th.

This particular unit appears to be a former United States Air Force (USAF) AC-130W Stinger II Gunship, manufactured by Lockheed Martin.

The aircraft was paid for years ago by Horizon 2, a part of the Philippines larger 3-part plan to improve the country’s military capabilities, and is the 2nd one expected to arrive.
