As you say the article does not actually mention that DU ammunition is being used. But obviously these are the types of planes with equipment meant to use such ammunition and it is most effective at penetrating armor. Surely someone should be checking.

Cheers, ken

Deployed, yes, in the brief window before NATO took over the operation -- but that's not the same thing as actually being used. I could be wrong, of course, just haven't seen anything on the feeds.
