Background Information

Background Information Many Considerations are made when conducting strikes in built up areas. Built up areas, such as towns, are areas in which it is important to be extremely accurate with intelligence gathering to prevent collateral damage to neighbouring properties or innocent parties. All weapons used on the F/A-18 Hornet (and Super Hornet) are precision guided. The F/A-18 Hornet carries a range of weapons that have different amounts of explosive in them, enabling the crew to select the type of weapon that is best suited to destroy the target, and minimise collateral damage. Precision guided weapons are fitted with a guidance system or seeker that controls the guidance fins, allowing the weapon to ‘fly to the target. The pilot will either programme the GPS co-ordinates of the target into the bomb or use a laser on the aircraft to designate the exact target. The bomb then controls itself to hit the precise laser dot or GPS co-ordinates. Both of these techniques result in an extremely high degree of bomb accuracy.

Note: the floating white square in the videos is generated by the system and indicates the direction the targetting pod is facing relative to the aircraft.

Mosul Daesh staging area (Iraq)
DDM Video: V20150504
Date shot: April 2015

COMPILE DETAILS
Mosul has a population of over a million people, and is a major cultural centre for the Iraqi people. It is also a major logistics hub at the centre of Daesh’s self appointed ‘state’ within Iraq which is used to distribute weapons and fighters from Syria throughout Daesh controlled areas in Iraq. In particular, significant numbers of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are made in Mosul by Daesh and distributed to key areas such as Ramadi and Bayji where they are used as a key Daesh weapon for killing friendly forces and slowing Iraqi operations to retake Daesh held territory.

In April 2015, two Australian F/A-18A Hornets conducted a dedicated strike in Mosul, as part of the Operation OKRA campaign. They struck a facility used to store weapons and house Daesh fighters, also believed to be an IED production facility, with four 1000lb class weapons. Confirmation that this facility was used to produce IEDs following the strike. Loss of this facility disrupted Daesh’s ability to defend the immediate area and provide logistics support throughout the area.

Daesh buildings in vicinity of Bayji (Iraq)

Date shot: May 2015

COMPILE DETAILS
In May 2015, intelligence reports had confirmed that there were Daesh fighters inside two neighbouring buildings that were in a built up area in the vicinity of Bayp. Two F/A-18A Hornets dropped four 500lb GPS guided weapons simultaneously which destroyed both targets. It can be seen from the post strike video that the buildings are completely destroyed and there is little damage to neighbouring buildings, just debris scattered from the strike. Removal of these targets has reduced the number of Daesh fighters and facilities that were used by them to plan and execute attacks.

COMPILE DETAILS
In July 2015 two F/A-18A Hornets conducted a dedicated strike of a Daesh Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) storage and production factory with four 2000lb GPS guided weapons. The loss of this facility degraded Daesh’s VBIED production ability.

Daesh regularly use mortars and other long range infantry weapons in an attempt to disrupt Iraqi forces. A mortar can be carried by a couple of troops and fires an explosive shell in an arching trajectory. Daesh use them because they can hide In bull up areas and fire at Iraqi troops. In urban areas it is difficult for Iraqi troops to find mortar teams and return fie without the use of aircraft overhead. It is imperative to attack and destroy these mortars as quickly as possible. as Daesh can pack them up and move them quickly If they move the mortar, they can quickly hide it and are able to use It again to continue to kill and injure Iraqi civilians and forces.

In August 2015. intelligence reports confirmed a Daesh mortar position that was in close proximity to a civilian budding. An F/A-18A Hornet dropped a 5001b laser guided weapon which destroyed the mortar position. As can be seen from the post strike video there was minimal damage to the civitan building. Removal of this metier position stepped Daesh from firing on Iraqi Security ForCOS and coalition forces in the vicinity of Al Taqaddum Air Base. Ultimately. removal of these kinds of heavy weapons from a battle prevents casualties to friendly forces and allows friendly forces to manoeuvre to re-take Daesh held positions.
