New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Screenshots Showcase AC130 Gameplay


The infamous AC-130 is a gunship used by the United States Air Force.  It appeared in COD 4: Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, and is also set to appear in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Originally appearing as a single-player only vehicle in the original Modern Warfare, the AC-130 was obtained as a killstreak reward in Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer.  Now, the AC-130 returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's single player mode.  The following two screenshots showcase some AC-130 aerial gameplay in what appears to be a French city.

AC130 Bofors Cannon

AC130 M102 Howitzer

As you can see the AC-130 will contain two types of weapons: Bofors Cannon and M102 Howitzer.  You'll also notice, unlike previous version, that the AC-130 imaging camera is no longer thermal.  Thank god!  Now I can clearly see the destruction I'm causing.

The AC-130 also appears in the Survival Mode as a reward which can be bought.  The player can throw a purple smoke marker on the ground and the AC-130 will fire upon that location.  Lastly, the AC-130 will also appear as a kill streak in Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer, though it looks as if the missiles take longer to hit the ground.
