On Wednesday, Typhoon jets attacked terrorists who had been in combat with Iraqi security forces in northern Iraq.

The Ministry of Defence say in a release that Royal Air Force aircraft have continued to fly daily armed reconnaissance missions over Iraq and eastern Syria as part of the global coalition against the Daesh terrorist movement.

On Wednesday the 25th of September say the MoD, a pair of Typhoons responded to reports that a small group of Daesh extremists had been engaged in fighting with Iraqi security forces.

“Coalition surveillance aircraft had tracked the terrorists after the engagement to a group of buildings in the desert, some forty miles west of Bayji.”

The surveillance aircraft reportedly conducted a thorough check of the area for any civilians that might be placed at risk before the Typhoons attacked, using Paveway IV guided bombs to destroy the two key buildings occupied by the terrorists.

Good. Got them before they discovered they had British passports all along.

Would we benefit from something akin to the A10?

Single seat hawks which can double up as aggressor aircraft may be able to drop ordnance for a lot less cost than a typhoon in an uncontested environment
