Carson had the targets painted, whilst I scanned the horizon with NVGs, spotting a couple of Iraqi soldiers standing close to the Scud. Activity around the Scuds suddenly intensified as Iraqi vehicles begin to scatter in all directions. A single dual 30mm anti-aircraft gun, elevated its guns and began to pump 30mm green tracer shells into the sky. More anti-aircraft guns begin to spew out shells into the air at an alarming rate with deadly green tracer rounds crisscrossing the sky. This meant the allied jets were not far out. Carson could hear all the radio chatter from the jets. “Honey 1, 40 seconds, Honey 1 ten seconds, Honey 1, laser on, spot, Honey 1, lock launch, sixty seconds to laser designator switch on, Ten seconds to switch on. Laser spot acquired, target locked-on and ordnance fired.” A double explosion lit up the dark night sky with a large plume of orange and yellow hues as the ground to air bomb found its mark and exploded.

Delta Force Scud Boulevard follows a Delta team deep behind Iraqi enemy lines during the first Gulf War on a mission every bit as eventful as the famed SAS Bravo Two Zero patrol. One squadron from Delta arrived in Saudi Arabia in early February 1991 as part of the Joint Special Operations Task Force. Following a period of concentrated planning, teams infiltrated western Iraq by a variety of methods, often working with the pilots and crews of MH-60 Black Hawks and MH-47E Chinooks from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Delta was assigned as its hunting ground in Iraq, an area northwest of Highway 10 near Al Qaim known as Scud Boulevard.
