IRAQ IRAN REPORT

Recommended Posts

6/13/2007 - SOUTHWEST ASIA --

 

In Afghanistan, an Air Force F15E Strike Eagle conducted a successful show of force, launching flares to deter further enemy activity in Sangin.

 

Also in Sangin, a Royal Air Force GR-9 Harrier conducted a show of force along a tree line. The on-scene joint terminal attack controller called the show of force successful because it decreased enemy activity in the area.

 

Another GR-9 performed a show of force over a village in Kandahar to allow friendly forces to maneuver in the area. The show of force was reported as successful.

 

An Air Force B-1B Lancer dropped guided bomb unit-38s and 31s on insurgents engaged with coalition forces in Oruzgan. The bombs were reported to have good effects and destroyed their targets. The aircrew also showed force over the area to support a medical evacuation unit.

 

Another B-1 successfully dropped GBU-38s on insurgents on a mountain peak in Oruzgan. The bomber also performed a show of force against a group of insurgents converging near a river in Asmar.

 

Also in Oruzgan, an Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II conducted a show of force for a convoy moving toward a ridgeline. The show of force was called a success. There were no attacks on the convoy after the show of force.

 

In total, 40 close-air-support missions were flown in support of ISAF and Afghan security forces, reconstruction activities and route patrols.

 

Ten Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft flew missions in support of operations in Afghanistan. Additionally, two RAF aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

 

In Iraq, Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons watched over a convoy hit by an improvised explosive device in Samarra. The pilots also monitored ground forces looking for the missing Soldiers and observed bridges for possible IEDs.

 

Later in Samarra, F-16s followed a truck carrying IED emplacers.

 

Also in Samarra, other F-16s provided overwatch for an Army AH-64 Apache that made a precautionary landing for repairs.

 

In Baghdad, F-16s monitored suspicious activities involving IEDs.

 

RAF GR-4 Tornados watched over an outdoor market in Baghdad.

 

U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets monitored a helicopter attack of insurgents in Baghdad.

 

In Baquba, A-10s strafed insurgents hiding in a canal. The cannon rounds impacted their intended targets.

 

Also in Baquba, an F-18 dropped a GBU-38 on a building containing insurgents suspected of triggering an IED. The strike was reported to have good effects.

 

An Air Force MQ-1 Predator launched a Hellfire Missile and blew up a truck in Taji. The truck was located in a suspected terrorist camp. The missile caused secondary explosions when it impacted the truck.

 

Also in Taji, F-16s watched over an area where an artillery round had exploded.

 

In total, coalition aircraft flew 63 close-air-support missions for Operation Iraqi Freedom. These missions supported coalition ground forces, protected key infrastructure, provided overwatch for reconstruction activities and helped to deter and disrupt terrorist activities.

 

Sixteen Air Force and Navy ISR aircraft flew missions in support of operations in Iraq. Additionally, five Air Force and Navy fighter aircraft performed tactical reconnaissance.

 

Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft and C-17 Globemaster IIIs provided intra-theater heavy airlift support, helping to sustain operations throughout Afghanistan, Iraq and the Horn of Africa.

 

Approximately 170 airlift sorties were flown, 590 tons of cargo was delivered and some 2,780 passengers were transported. This included approximately 34,160 pounds of troop re-supply air-dropped in Afghanistan.

 

Coalition C-130 crews from Australia, Canada and Iraq flew in support of operations in Afghanistan or Iraq.

 

On June 11, Air Force, RAF and Republic of Singapore tankers flew 42 sorties and off-loaded approximately 2.7 million pounds of fuel to 252 receiving aircraft.

Sgurglio, ti consiglierei di mettere il link alle fonti, o di segnalare direttamente la fonte senza il copia-incolla, almeno nei casi in cui la fonte è pubblica, come questa:

 

http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123056910

 

In questo modo limitiamo vasti copia-incolla che oltre ad appesantire il forum e la banda, possono creare problemi di copyright.

 

E' solo un consiglio, sia chiaro.

IN EFFETTI POTREBBE ESSERE PIU' SEMPLICE ,PERO' L'ESPERIENZA DICE CHE TRA L''APERTURA DEL FORUM E IL RIMANDO AD ALTRO LINK PUO' PASSARE DIVERSO TEMPO CON QUEL CHE CONSEGUE IN COSTI BOLLETTA.

IL COPIA E INCOLLA SEMBRA ESSERE IL SISTEMA PIU' RAPIDO PER METTERE A DISPOSIZIONE UNA NOTIZIA.

OVVIAMENTE MI INCHINO A CHI LEGGE , SE VOLETE ESPRIMERE IL VOSTRO PARERE IO POI MI ATTERRO' AI RISULTATI.

Uno stringato riassunto o un commento di 2 righe da parte tua, seguito dall'indicazione del link alla fonte è la cosa più chiara, semplice è anche abbastanza rapida...oltre che più corretta da un punto di vista dei problemi di copyright.

Se la notizia può interessare, uno non fa altro che aprire il link e leggerla, oppure può eventualmente proseguire con altre discussioni del forum, leggendo la notizia (magari una pagina intera in inglese...) anche dopo aver staccato la connessione (per chi paga con tariffa a tempo).

Inoltre è sempre importante sapere da dove una notizia è stata presa...

Eddai, non prenderla così...in fondo hai chiesto tu di esprimere un parere no? :P

E poi qua siamo tutti ospiti di Fabio e cerchiamo, nei limiti del possibile, di rendere questo forum sempre migliore... :okok:
