    That is super quiet and calm compared to the sound and calamity of a 105 firing in a tank turret.

      Larger compartment and MUCH more background noise.

      Cleaner for sure.

      the AC-130 fires a 105mm howitzer round – relatively low velocity, thin walled shell with lots of HE. Your old tanker days were firing a high velocity 105mm tank cannon – a much higher velocity round with a much larger propellant charge. The howitzer round is better for explosive effects on target, the tank round is better for fighting other tanks, and is much louder.
