Does anyone have any images of the recruiting posters the Air Force put out around that time with the line "See The USA in a C-5A"?

Seems odd that the AC-5 has rotary cannons on the port and starboard sides of the fuselage while the AC-130 only has them on the port side.

Obvious. As it flies along a valley it can attrit both sides at once.

Ha! - 6000' feet on an LCG IV runway. 5000' during wartime which includes ~108 runways in Asia. Don't have far to look for them. ;)

Here's a nice piece (and excerpt) from the February 8, 1968 issue of Flight International that may be helpful, "Promoting the L-500," (Page 108):
https://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPDFArchive/1968/1968%20-%200198.PDF
. . .
The L-500 is carefully specified to minimise the cost to airlines of introducing small fleets of the type. A notable decision in this direction is the choice of the Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7 (exactly as fitted to the 747) as the powerplant. The company would be perfectly happy to offer the L-500 powered by the 47,5001b-thrust Rolls-Royce RB.207 (slated for development to power the projected European Airbus), but it believes that most long-haul airlines likely to be interested in the L-500 will also have fleets of Boeing 747s powered by the JT9D and would therefore be disinclined to introduce a new type of engine with a comparatively small fleet.

The principal differences between the L-500 and the C-5A are as follows: The L-500 has higher maximum permitted
operating weights (possible without major structural re-design because of the STOL soft-field capability of the military aircraft); 45,5001b-thrust P&W JT9D-7 turbofans in place of the 41,0001b-thrust GE CTF-9 of the C-5A; deletion of the rear end loading door arrangement; a larger diameter upper deck lobe to accommodate 707/DC-8 sized pallet igloos; and the incorporation of a mechanical handling system for standard 8ft X 8ft freight containers. . . .

Aside from the engine options, interesting to read that rear door loading would be eliminated for the civil variant, and the plan to increase the size of the upper-deck lobe to accommodate 707/DC-8 pallets.

Verkuyl model of Lockheed KC-5.

Does anyone know if the KC-5 simply utilised a Boeing flying boom or was Lockheed proposing it's own design?

From a document I posted in the Bar on Strategic Weapons in a 1960's memo from SecDef to POTUS:

Disapproving Contract Definition for the Airborne Missile Intercept System (ABMIS), a concept for which there is no advanced development program.

Yesterday I was reading the SABMIS thread and did some further research. I found ABMIS and also FABMIS - quite inevitably, the Air Force and Army own takes at SABMIS.
that is - Nike-X on mobile platforms that can be brought closer from the North Pole to cripple an incoming (small) wave of Soviets or PRC ICBMs.

Also Minuteman I turned ABM to protect their Minuteman III siblings. The whole thing called (no kidding !) Minutemaid, like the orange juice brand. Must be the same idiot that 20 years later come with the name Midgetman for the smaller MX.

ABMIS was to use C-5A Galaxy - some with phased arrays mounted on the wings and fuselage, in a ++ shape; others carrying interceptors.
