#4 EG8325, Sorry that is an MH-60 DAP not a Marine Cobra. It belongs to the 160th SOAR, an Army unit. The dual 50s are followed by rockets. It's gun sex in the air!

#5 The first set of shots are dual 50 cal, followed by rockets. The second set is the dual 7.62 mini guns, again followed by rockets.

#6 49Pan, yeppers, In the target area is not a place any sane person would want to be. Its a shame the USMC doesnt operate better stuff, but then again they've always done it that way, and do pretty well with last generation airframes mixed with this generation weps and avionics.
