Navy helicopters help seize heroin in Helmand
Over 2,000 pounds (900kg) of heroin and two bomb-makers have been intercepted in Afghanistan with the help of the Royal Navy’s Sea King helicopters – known as the ‘eyes in the sky’.
Ground troops intercepted drug runners trying to smuggle 2,200 pounds (1,000kg) of heroin after being guided by naval aviators and their Sea Kings bristling with state-of-the-art sensors.
And, in another incident, the Navy Sea Kings led US Marines of the 2nd Light Armoured Reconnaissance Battalion to apprehend two bomb-makers suspected of producing improvised explosive devices.
