The old Ark Royal (R09) served from 1955 until 1978 and during her final decade carried FG1 Phantom fighters and Buccaneer long range strike aircraft capable of delivering tactical nuclear weapons. She gave potential enemies sound reason for prudence and diplomacy rather than military gambles. Here Gannet AEW aircraft are parked across the stern, five FG1 Phantoms along the flight deck and some Buccaneers on the bow.

The AC-130H Spectre (Attack Cargo Plane Project II) currently retired/replaced with the J model Ghostrider.  Spectres weapons consisted of twin 20mm cannons (mid pic), one Bofors 40mm cannon and one 105mm Howitzer (bottom pic).  See the top pic, there are two black squares that used to house the 20mm cannons.  This weapon was removed due to a ricochet issue (collateral damage) reported by Special Forces on the ground, something that has never been mentioned anywhere.
