British attack helicopters to Libya - Telegraph
And this to enforce a no fly zone??
But it's not just a no-fly zone. Read UNSCR 1973. This action was to prevent civilians being bombarded again by Gaddafi's gunboats (link).
In that case I'll wind one's neck in. However, I do feel a bit sympathetic for the duty watch on those boats ...
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).
