Re: 30 years ago: Silkworm attack on Allied fleet
30 years ago?? Seems like a couple of years in my memory!
30 years ago, on the 25th of February 1991, an Iraqi battery attacked the Allied fleet with two Silkworm (HY-2/C-201) missiles. These were aimed at USS Missouri . One of them failed, the other was intercepted with Sea Darts by HMS Gloucester and its parts fall next to the British flagship HMS London into the sea.
HMS London (1/700, converted from Orange Hobby's Cornwall )
HMS Gloucester (1/700, Dragon)
