The C-130 Hercules is a workhorse that can carry troops, shoot the windows out of your car from a mile away, and drop a tank wherever it wants.
The C-130 may seem like a slow, lumbering aircraft, but make no mistake it can do some damage. When it’s time to deliver the goods, this beast of a military weapon can and will do it.
Oh yeah, have you ever seen one give birth to a tank? Well, this is how it looks.
It takes some excellent piloting to carry out such a maneuver. Taking a massive aircraft so close to the ground and releasing it like a payload is nothing short of genius.
I flew the C-130 in a flight simulator back in the day, seriously, and got three chances just to land it. I died every single time. It was not ideal.
No doubt about it, the Hercules will more than mess with anything that messes with it, and if it’s the AC-130 Spectre Gunship just kiss your ass goodbye!
