Default RAF Chinook "Bravo November"

As we've been discussing the Falklands lately...attached a short stand alone article on one particular veteran of the Falklands War's service in the Twilight War...

The part about the Battle of Warsaw airport is inspired by James Langham's article on the 44th Airborne Brigade, whilst the exploits described are inspired by a description of RAF Chinook operations in Afghanistan in "A Million Bullets" by James Fergusson.

Finally, for anyone unfamiliar with the real Bravo November, details can be found here

Great work as ever, particularly glad you mentioned the RAF/Army rivalries over who should run army helicopters.

Only one minor point, bit optimistic on getting the Imperial War museum in London, up and running by 2014? Place probably gets hit with about 3 or 4 nukes. Filling the crater where it once was will probably take a while!

Thanks for the feedback guys - much appreciated.

Dude, you're probably right...with the benefit of hindsight Portsmouth would probably have been the more logical place to site the Imperial War Museum, at least in the short term.

Cheers
