It has been revealed that Prince Harry, who is serving as an Apache co-pilot in Afghanistan, has launched a devastating air strike against the Taliban in support to troops on the ground.
Part of the airstrike was a 100 lb. Hellfire missile.
The attack happened in late October, shortly after Prince Harry returned to Afghanistan for his second tour of duty as gunship co-pilot.
Captain Harry Wales – as he is known in the Army – is a co-pilot gunner in the Apache unit, the unit that has the highest “kill rate” in the war.
As the co-pilot gunner, Harry commands missions, fire the weapons, navigates and sometimes take over the controls.
“He [Harry] has approached the deployment with a range of emotions like any other soldier and feels both pride and anticipation as he deploys for a job he’s trained for, for so long,” said a spokesman in a statement.
“Prince Harry, like any soldier, considers it a great honor to represent his country in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces wherever it chooses to deploy him.”
Despite being royalty, Prince Harry takes much pride in serving his country.
