I know AC-130H 4347, FY #69-6573 "Heavy Metal" was used in the Transformers movie. Even currently carries a Decepticon kill marking.

There was ex-USAF #56-0511 in the movie The Dark Knight Rises.

That Herc is operated by 'International Air Response' from Arizona, USA.

Anyone got Fast 5 (Fast And Furious). A C-130 appeared in there offloading DSS agent Luke Hobbs & team. ID please.

And another one for the enthusiasts. What's the one seen in The Incredible Hulk (2008 - Edward Norton) :D :D

Finally found the photo of 'Heavy Metal' #69-6573 "Decepticon" kill marking


USAF AC-130H #69-6573 from 16 SOS "Heavy Metal", proudly displays its "Decepticon" kill marking under the pilots window April 8, 2015 at Cannon AFB. Heavy Metal was the gunship featured in the first Transformers film as it was called in to "bring the rain" in order to protect special forces operators from a giant robot scorpion.
