The E-11A caught me by surprise.

I'll throw this in..

Mmm BACN


The 430th Expeditionary Electronic Squadron operating out of Kandahar is the only unit in the U.S. Air Force that operates the E-11A with the BACN payload. It was created to fulfill what is called a joint urgent operational need, when it was identified that the terrain of Afghanistan posed serious communication challenges.

For those interested, aircraft involved over the Med included an RQ-4, RC-135V, F-16s from Aviano in the strike role, F-15Cs from the UK for air cover, French Rafales out of one of their bases, RAF Tornados out of Cyprus, 20 KC-135s and KC-10s, a French C-130H that came out of Lebanon and made a quick dash to Egypt, and most interesting an E-11A. That aircraft being there means F-22s were in the area.

In addition, B-1s from Qatar, and undisclosed aircraft from the US were involved. The B-1s deployed from Ellsworrh AFB, SD last week.

In addition to the DCA and Wild Weasel escorts, at least one EA-6B Prowler escorted the two B-1s. The bombers dropped 19 JASSM weapons.

The Monterey and Laboon fired 37 missiles between the two. The Higgins fired 23. The Monterey is a cruiser, the other two are destroyers. The John Warner, a Virginia class sub fired 6. An unnamed French frigate fired 3 navilized Scalp missiles.

The EAF flew Typhoons and Tornados, and fired 8 Storm Shadow missiles.

The French flew Mirage and Rafales and fired 9 Scalp missiles.

The French frigate was the Languedoc. It's one of three currently capable of firing the MdCN missile.

And a fast gas guzzler for damage assessment that will not be mentioned.

I'm not sure if this has been posted but it does feature an attempt from a very unlikely source, General Jonathan Shaw (Ret'd.) formerly of the British army, to question the premise of this attack, before being cut off during the broadcast.

en.wikipedia.org...(British_Army_officer)#Military_career


After attending the Higher Command and Staff Course at the Joint Services Command and Staff College in 2000, he was made Commander of 12th (Mechanized) Brigade in 2002[2] and subsequently commanded the Multi-National Brigade (Centre) in Kosovo.[1] He was appointed Director Special Forces in 2003, and having attended the Royal College of Defence Studies in 2006, he became General Officer Commanding Multi-National Division (South East), Iraq in January 2007 and went on to be Chief of Staff at HQ Land Forces in September 2007.[2] He became Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (International Security Policy) in March 2009 and Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Global Issues) in January 2011.[1] His responsibilities include Chemical Biological Radiological & Nuclear Policy, Arms Control and Counter Proliferation and Cyber.[1]

They had to make it a little bit exciting and surprising or else people would just start to believe that just because they went along with things then they are push overs.

Cheers to no loss of life.

In case of real events things would not be so easy at all.

Trump said, he wanted to pull out the troops and then a chemical attack happens. All this sounds like a ISIS self inflicted wound to keep us there and get us to bomb. Drain our economy and they steal the funds to do more terrorism. This is how ISIS works, they infiltrate and destroy from the inside out and devour the world.
