    Thanks to all those who took part and congratulations to the winners. One of the questions was a bit tricky Q2 What was the British JTAC's callsign when on operations in Afghanistan. Well the answer was "Widow". However, the MoD did not like having Widow as the name of the book so made the authors & publishers change it to Fire Strike. Sneaky eh?!!

    Only 3 people had this part correct (along with the other two parts) so books are going to

    You 3 can now big it up and have bragging rights!

    However, there are 5 books to give away so the nice people at FLINT Marketing allowed 2 more to come from those who said Fire Strike and got the other two parts right. The 2 drawn from that group are:

    The answers are:
    Q1 What does JTAC stand for? Answer: Joint Terminal Attack Controller
    Q2 What is the callsign British JTACs used in Afghanistan Answer : Widow (accepted Fire Strike)
    Q3 What do the names "Spectre" and "Spooky" refer to in terms of aircraft that JTAC can call in to do airstrikes? Answer : C130

    I will email the winners or they can PM me their name and address and I will get the books sent out.
