Armés de bombes GBU 12, deux avions Rafale équipés de pod de désignation Damoclès et soutenus par un avion ravitailleur C135-FR ont effectué ce matin une nouvelle mission de soutien aérien en Irak, dans la région de Bagdad.

Ce vol s’inscrivait dans le cadre d’une mission dite de “dynamic targeting”. Il s’agit pour les équipages de se tenir prêts à assurer des frappes en cas d’identification de cibles d’opportunité au sol.

En contact permanent avec le centre opérationnel aérien(1) américain d’Al Udeid, au Qatar, chargé de la coordination des moyens engagés sur zone, les avions français ont ainsi survolé le nord-ouest de Bagdad durant près de deux heures. Aucune frappe n’a été effectuée au cours de ce vol.

Ces missions, qu’elles soient orientées vers des cibles d’opportunité ou prédéfinies, visent à assurer un soutien aérien aux forces armées irakiennes dans leur lutte contre le groupe terroriste Daech.

Ces actions s’inscrivent dorénavant dans le cadre de l’opération Chammal, nom d’un vent de nord-ouest soufflant sur l’Irak et le golfe arabo-persique.

Notes

France becomes the first international partner to join US in air war against ISIL, carrying out two air strikes on an ISL logistics depot at Zumar, north east Iraq.

Le dépôt logistique de Daech ciblé par le raid aérien effectué ce matin (vendredi 19 septembre 2014) a été détruit.

Au cours de ce vol d’environ cinq heures, les deux Rafale ont été ravitaillés à trois reprises par l’avion ravitailleur C135-FR.

Les chasseurs français, équipés de pod de désignation Damoclès ont porté leurs frappes entre 09h40 et 09h58 avec quatre bombes guidées laser GBU 12.

L’avion de patrouille maritime Atlantique 2 a effectué une mission d’une dizaine d’heures, coordonnée avec celle des Rafale. Ses capteurs ont permis d’assurer le volet renseignement de la mission et d’effectuer un battle damage assesment (BDA)* transmis immédiatement au centre de planification et de conduite des opérations situé à Paris.

Durant cette mission, le volet personnel recovery, c’est-à-dire la capacité à secourir les pilotes en zone hostile, était assuré par des moyens militaires américains.

Conformément à la volonté du Président de la République, de nouvelles frappes se dérouleront dans les jours à venir pour soutenir les armées irakiennes dans leur lutte contre Daech. Ces frappes seront à nouveau effectuées en coordination étroite avec les autorités irakiennes ainsi qu’avec nos alliés présents sur le théâtre.
