You could go to the Lockheed Martin official website, the DOD website, or even Wikipedia to find the official origins of the AC-130 Gunship, but we think it went something like this in 1967:
Drunk engineer 1: So...dude...let's take a cargo plane and trick it out with every weapon we can find!
Drunk engineer 2: I don't know man...a cargo plane?
Drunk engineer 1: Come on!
Drunk engineer 2: Well...can we add a 25mm gatling gun and a 40mm cannon?
Drunk engineer 1: Shit yeah, man! We can even add a 105mm Howitzer cannon!
Drunk enginner 2: Really? Well in that case - I'm in!
In all seriousness, the AC-130 has saved more than its fair share of ground pounder's lives, and this shirt is a shout out both to those of you that have seen it's handywork from the ground and those kickass pilots and aircrewmen that make it's existence possible.
