Hellfire-first as Apaches exercise with Navy off Scotland

Ministry of Defence said:
Army Apache helicopters, launched from HMS Illustrious off the Scottish coast, have fired tank-busting Hellfire missiles in the UK for the first time, during one of the biggest military exercises of the year.

Reminds me of the bad old days being stationed at Farad Head and watching the Squadron aircraft, each dropping 8X1000lbs of HE on Garvie island :D
