Built with a lethal number of mini-guns, howitzers, and cannons, itŐs no wonder that the C-130 Gunship had the reputation of being one of the deadliest combat weapons to date. The aircraft was used by the US Air Force for several purposes such as force protection, bombing raid, air missions, air interdiction, and close air support. The gunship was also utilized during the United Shield in Somalia and Continue Hope operations. Moreover, it played an important role in providing support to NATO during its mission in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Its role of performing air interdiction had been aimed for its main targets in the Sarajevo area. In 2007, the American Air Force had planned to upgrade and place additional armaments on the C-130 Gunship.
