During the course of the Southeast Asian war, the United States developed many new types of air tactics that had never previously been needed. Invariably putting existing technology through radical redevelopment, new missions were devised, often under bizarre code-names.

Jolly Green Giant
One of the most unsung heroes of the southeast Asian was were Winch Men, lowered from large camouflage helicopters known as Green Giants. They would descend through tropical foliage, trying to pluck fallen American pilots from the clutches of the Viet Cong.

Spookies, Spectres and Shadows
To meet the needs of unconventional warfare, a series of benign cargo planes were modified into some of the most extraordinary and destructive weapon systems of all time. The success of makeshift gunships such as the AC-47 “Spookies” led to the creation of more sophisticated and deadly airborne predators, such as the AC-130 “Spectre”. It was equipped with high-tech sensors and the most powerful weaponry ever assembled in an aircraft.
