Understatement Of The Day


Near Malek Din, a Strike Eagle providing aerial overwatch to a coalition convoy used a GBU-12 to take out an enemy motorcycle after its rider was spotted detonating an improvised explosive device. The IED had exploded as a coalition convoy was passing, but the armor of the vehicle it hit absorbed the blast. The IED bomber attempted to escape the area on his motorcycle, but was unable to outpace the twin-engine, supersonic fighter. The F-15E also flew a show of force in the area to deter any potential enemy attack following the IED explosion.
