The Fairchild AC-119G Shadow was a twin-engine piston-powered gunship developed by the United States during the Vietnam War. By late 1967, the idea of the fixed-wing gunship had been proven so successful that the United States Air Force was having a difficult time keeping up with demand. These aircraft were primarily intended to replace the AC-47 in the close air support role and were placed in the 71st Special Operations Squadron (SOW). They were used by the SOW from 1969–1971.
