An RAF Hercules plane which crashed in Iraq killing 10 British servicemen in January was hit by ground-to-air fire.
The report said: "The board has determined that the aircraft crashed as a result of hostile ground-to-air fire which caused an explosion in the right
hand wing fuel tank. "This explosion caused the outboard section of the wing to separate from the rest of the wing at which point the aircraft
immediately became uncontrollable."
The nature of weapon used in the attack was not being disclosed for security reasons, Mr Reid added.
