I have not seen this reported in many places other than local news sites for Portsmouth and Liverpool. It appears that the Type 42 destroyer was fired upon on Thursday night by Libyan forces using rockets and large calibre machine guns. She returned fire using her 4.5 inch gun (shells effectively) and took out the rocket and gun emplacement. The full story is here HMS Liverpool's captain speaks of gun battle with Gaddafi forces . I thought maybe this should be getting more coverage, but obviously there are bigger news stories at the moment

I guess that's what happens when you invade another country eh? Defending their home will become a "bad thing" for them in the press as always. Really, what the hell is NATO still doing there? Ghadaffi called Obama out at the UN and then this whole sideshow started.

Nice find! s&f

Good to hear that all was calm on board whilst everyone got on with their jobs


Love the quote from Commander Colin Williams

It was a good old fashioned ding-dong. The enemy fire was coming in pretty close. It was fairly close-range stuff but we’ve trained for this and we were ready to win the fight

If you fire on a naval vessel from a fixed position you are either stupid or have a death wish, especially against one that's about 40 years more technically advanced than you are.

I'm wondering how TPTB and the MSM are going to twist this story to make the Ghaddafi forces seem like the invaders and the oppresors when it is infact the British destroyer which is impeaching on Libyan sovereignty.

Who cares if it's on the news or not, Everyone on ats says it's none of our business so why does it matter?
