British Eurofighter Typhoon fighters dropped Paveway IV bombs on targets in Iraq

19

A spokesman for the British Department of Defense announced that the British Air Force conducted a special operation against ISIS (* a terrorist organization banned in Russia) in Iraq. It happened three years later from the moment London announced the end of the mission in Iraq "in connection with the complete defeat of ISIS *."


In a message from the United Kingdom military, it is said that two Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.Mk4 fighters of the British Air Force were used to strike the militants. To hit targets on the ground, laser-guided Paveway IV bombs were used.

These bombs have such a feature as detonation with a certain delay after impact. This allows you to more effectively hit well-defended targets, including targets in fortified areas.

According to recent reports, it was against such targets that the bombs were used. It is alleged that the targets of ISIS fighters * were hit in a mountainous area near the city of Baiji in the province of Salah ed-Din.

The RAF showed footage of an Eurofighter Typhoon striking in Iraq. It can be seen that the blow is being delivered to the highlands.


According to the press service of the British Ministry of Defense, as a result of air strikes, caves that were used by terrorists in the said Iraqi province were destroyed.

    This action is more like a test of bomb weapons than a real fight with barmaleykin.

    Bunker bombs. Now SAS and builders will move to the area. Their task will be to establish whether something that can be removed has survived - papers, computer media ... Well, and cleaning up those who could not be covered with bombs. Naturally, the West gave birth to this very ISIS. And now he cleans up the traces of his activities.

    Guided aerial bombs were used to hit targets on the ground Paveway IV laser-guided.

    If you believe the reports of the press service of the British Department of Defense, then as a result of air strikes caves destroyed, which were used by terrorists in the said Iraqi province.

    500-foot anti-bunker. That is, a little over 200kg. It is still possible to collapse a small section of the entrance, but in order to break through 10-20 meters of rocks above the caves and cause massive blockages inside it is already unlikely.

        The trouble is that those who enjoy watching such a "movie" have a poor idea of ​​reality. For many, it really turns into a show, and few people realize that in the next "episode" of this "show", he himself or his relatives may be in the role of "actors".

            Like the IED, but the terrorist attacks themselves are recorded in detail. Who will appoint whom guilty and in what it does not matter how and with what they will kill! Who would have thought 10 years ago that a live war would take place in Ukraine? And the terrorist attacks in Russia in the late 80s? If someone started saying that, they would have laughed at him, otherwise they would have been sent to a psychiatric hospital. 40 years ago, everyone believed that a war in Europe was not possible. Now you can watch the death of people live and immediately discuss all the details on the forums. People become insensitive to someone else's death, relish it as something excellent, like a show. They believe that it will not affect them, and if it does, they will show everyone! Humanity has come close to a big war!

    It happened three years later ...
    Why did the British suddenly remember that they had not bombed something in the mountains of Iraq? They wanted to destroy the terrorists so much that they did not eat or drink for three years, and everyone thought how and what. It seems that this is an exclusively political action - to show support for the United States after the elections and in response to the laudatory American odes on the issue of leaving the EU.
