The Fairchild AC-119K Stinger 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. The AC-119K was developed and primarily used for the "truck hunter" role over the Ho Chi Minh Trail and were placed in the 18th Special Operations Squadron (SOW). They were used by the SOW until the unit was deactivated in 1971. A few continued to be operated until the fall of 1972, but then was phased out.
