Opération Harmattan is the codename for the French participation in the 2011 military intervention in Libya. Following a significant escalation of alliance air power in support of Libyan rebels...Launched from carriers in the Mediterranean sea... French and British attack helicopters flew their first missions of the conflict earlier. Although they lack the range and payload capacity of conventional strike aircraft... attack helicopters pack the kind of battlefield firepower the rebels say they desperately need. NATO did not say exactly where the attacks took place... only that the helicopters targeted military vehicles and equipment.
