RAPIER MISSILE SITE FALKLANDS
























HT/Peter Ogden

As you can see above this site has had plenty of time spent on it giving it overhead cover and concealment, during the 1982 War Rapier sites didn't have the time to provide this cover as they had to be operational straight away. Some detachments were directly attacked by Argentine aircraft and were hit with cannon fire, but were not knocked out and continued to function, with a few holes here and there.
