    warning, for your safety: Leave your position, your equipment and go back to your home and your family. Stop the attacks against libyan civilians or you will be destroyed



    warning, you are no match to the advanced weapons and air superiority of nato. Continuing your attacks on civilians will be the reason for your death.

    Interesting news reported few days before the insurgency started on the status of the SCUD B's in Libyan arsenal.

    From RAF internet site

    In the attack on May 24, the radar head at the station was destroyed with a single Dual Mode Seeker Brimstrone missile. While the missile is designed for use against vehicles, and usually only used in that role, it was chosen as the most appropriate weapon for a precision strike.
    The relatively small warhead on the Brimstone missile meant that the aircrew could destroy the radar without destroying the building, and also ensure the risk of death and injury was minimised. All NATO strikes are carried out after full checks have been made to minimise collateral damage.
    Aircrew also choose weapons and attack tactics in line with this principle. The destruction of the radar degrades the Qadhafi regime's ability to monitor shipping and direct attacks against NATO or civilian vessels. This is the first time in Operation ELLAMY that Brimstone has been used against a target that was not a vehicle.

    here you go:

    By the way, this statement "This is the first time in Operation ELLAMY that Brimstone has been used against a target that was not a vehicle." clarifies that the missiles/bombs used agaist the Libyan Navy ships few days ago were not Brimstones.

    In this Libyan operation it seems that all the different involved countries want to highlight their newest weapons systems... It's close to a military parade of the latest aerospace systems a part for U.S.

    Just some combat debuts:

    Eurofigther
    Rafale (not combat debut, but first wide operational use)
    JAS-39 Gripen
    F-16E/F
    AASM
    SCALP EG / Storm Shadow
    Brimstone missile

    Charles De Gaulle aircraft carrier in its intended role of strike carrier

    Now they want to expose Tiger helos...

    Interesting to note that no such footage was ever dispatched and that the title of the interview is "Qaddafi troops accused of mass rape (in big)" and in small "vidos reportedly shows attack as tools of war"

    Classy PR technic : instill a reasonable doubt/repeat it x10 (for how long these rumors of mass rapes were running ?) and you don't need any proof

    I don't think releasing vids of gang rape to the public is a great idea. When that same **** happens here in the US, you won't have the vids running around, but they'll be used in court

    If they're legitimate, they'll be seen in court somewhere

    Agreed (and it is the same all around the world). When i said dispatched, i meant (like you concluded) toward/in official institutions (like the ICJ/UNSC...). So far nothing of that

    Some news (gathered on another forum, sourced from a french newspaper Air et cosmos)

    On the BPC "Tonnerre" : 12 Gazelles, (at least 7 Gazelle with night vision reco/targetting systems Viviane)
    2 to 4 Tigres (no more than 6 anyway due to the number available)
    Some 11e Regiment d'artillerie de marine (RAMA) coastal targetting and naval artillery targetting specialists onboard
