UK Deploying Helos in Libya

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In that case I'll wind one's neck in. However, I do feel a bit sympathetic for the duty watch on those boats ...
  2. The fact that LPHs are likely to be working closer to the Libyan coast might have a bearing on this action too. See The Sinking of the Eilat. Some sources suggest that the Egyptian missile boats didn't even leave the side when they launched their strikes. A similar situation arose during GRANBY when RN Lynx helos obliterated the Iraqi (recently Kuwaiti) TNC-45s with Sea Skuas (link).
