Boss – If you don’t mention that, I’m sure nobody will say anything about the re-location of Islands to prove a controversial case about land-based air cover…

@ GNB

lol it could really go back and fourth, but when I was hercs; plenty of times we would send off hercs with kit for the puddle pirates C: though not para-drops! The support network isn’t really talked about because its a given, standard.

Have done this a couple of times with the SAS, they use MIBS now, during their final work up they do a day Chinook bail out, day Hercy, night Chinook and night Hercy. Back to back with a briefing onboard followed by disembarking for a beach assualt. They looked shagged by final one, :)
