Military Aircraft

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 20 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Hercules 170 aircraft have foam suppressants fitted to their wing tanks. (186729)

I am withholding the information requested as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the UK armed forces.

All Hercules C-130 aircraft that are routinely deployed on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan are now fitted with explosion suppressant foam.
