Special Collection on Iraqi Launch of Hellfire Missile

As Iraqi Security Forces continue pushing forward in their proficiency, ranging from hand to hand-fighting techniques to weapons tactics and training, they advance as skilled defenders of their nation. With all the capabilities they continue to acquire, precision-guided aerial firepower is a significant asset for which they recognize a need. The use of the AGM-114 Hellfire missile begins a new age of air-strike capability for the Iraqi air force. IAF Squadron 3 tested their new weapon and left nothing but heaps of scrap metal and debris during a demonstration on shadow range aboard Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, Nov. 4, 2009. In a special collection, sldinfo.com has organized the core photos displaying this event.
