Dear all, I might sound like a young excited teenager here, but I want to ask military experts and professionals here about the possibility of converting the MRTA project into something like an AC-130 "Spectre"? The prospects of getting one of our own with Russian collaboration is far better and feasible than again and again requesting US to possibly get us a 100% American weaponize platform that might possibly be sanctioned during bad times. For example, Check this out: AC-130 Now our MRTA: This being half of AC-130 in capacity, we could create 3-4 different variants to be used by Army/IAF: Version 1 1Ã— 23 mm GSh-23 cannon 1Ã— 30 mm AK630 gatling cannons 1Ã— 40 mm Pegasus cannon (of Singapore) Version 2 2Ã— 30 mm GSh-31 cannons 1Ã— 40 mm Howitzer (of any available) Version 3 3Ã— 23 mm GSh-23 cannons 2Ã— 40 mm incendiary guns (firing incendiary explosives) _____________ Is this possible in MRTA? Because this would be mighty helpful to the IAF and IA aviation branch especially when carrying raids against insurgents. Now these armaments that I said can possibly be heavily modified to increase the range and damage. I purposely reduced the armaments to almost half of AC-130 respective to size of MRTA. Considering that gunships may be vulnerable to AA fire from insurgent groups using Chinese AA guns, our own "AC" MRTA variant can cause catastrophic damage using a similar configuration to the US gunship both in terms of avionics, advanced EW suite as well as sensors, apart from the obvious weapons. Please let me know of your opinions on this one. I really wonder whether our military has considered this spin-off with Russians.
