Libya: France and Britain Sending Attack Helicopters

French Tigre's will be in action soon

The Libyan Campaign has taken a step towards a more personal war.  For the last two months, NATO has been launching cruise missiles and dropping precision bombs on Gaddafi’s defenses.  Libyan rebels will now be receiving the tactical support they require.  Yesterday, Britain and France acknowledged that they will deploy attack helicopters to help strike precision targets while minimizing civilian casualties.  Having the helicopters will give NATO the ability to aquire and determine targets easier than previous methods.  France will be using Tigre and Gazelle helicopters, while Britain will be using Apache’s.
