Im quite interested in the recent acknowledgement that RAF pilots seconded to the Omani Air Force in the seventies took the war to the Yemenis in a Rolling Thunder style manner. The thing that struck me, in recent reportage was the claim that The RAF expended more air delivered ordnance in the Yemen secret war than was dropped in the Falklands conflict. RAF pilots carried out secret raids in Yemen - Telegraph I thought that the sum total of air support in the Falklands, including the Black Buck strategic missions, did not really amount to much. I was also under the impression that the, ostensibly multi mission, Harriers were primarily focussed on the fleet air defence task and did not contribute at all to CAS. Has anyone any idea of the actual tonnage dropped by either side in the Falklands? Id like to see an actual quantification of the tonnage dropped on Yemen in the 1970s compared with that dropped on the Falklands. Exactly how many iron bombs, rockets were dropped on Yemen, by the RAF in the seventies? Would a fairer comparison perhaps be the UK air force and Navy effort in Bosnia in the nineties? Has anyone got those numbers? More to the point did the Omanis apply more stick to the Yemenis than the Rhodesians did to the Zambians? And if they did why is it not on youtube?
