@Greg/GTX - yes, that is the video that I was watching at YouTube but it included a lot of other dog and pony show elements in addition to the hot rod C-130 with BLC.

America's New AC-130J Ghostrider Gunship Is a Beast



Described by AFSOC officials as "the ultimate battle plane" and "a bomb truck with guns on it," the Ghostrider comes with the standard 105mm cannon and an additional 30mm GAU-23/A cannon, along with wing pylons designed for both GBU-39/B Small Diameter Bombs and AGM-114 Hellfire missiles.
