HMS Brazen on Patrol
29th January: A flotilla of 17 landing craft are seen, part of an attempted Iraqi amphibious assault on the town of Khafji. Spotted and engaged by Royal Navy Lynx helicopters. Flights from Brazen and Gloucester attack and sink one vessel while Lynx 335 from Cardiff sinks another. The remainder are damaged, destroyed or dispersed by American carrier based aircraft and Royal Navy Sea King helicopters.
