VIDEO: RAF Tornado hits pro-Gaddafi forces' tank with Brimstone

NATO released aerial footage on Friday showing operation Unified Protector forces using a missile to strike a pro-Gadhafi tank operating in Misrata. The images, filmed by a British Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 surveying the area before the strike, show the tank being used to spearhead an attack in the city, according to NATO. The RAF jet filmed the tank firing it's gun as it circled overhead. The moment of impact of the Brimstone missile appears clearly on the footage, creating a huge cloud of smoke which clears to show the burning debris of the tank. Ground forces can then been seen fleeing from the area near where the missile struck.
