Operation Eagle's Summit

Around 2000 British and 2000 others from other NATO and Afghan allies have delivered a hydro-electric turbine weighing 100s of tons through 180 miles of hostile Taleban infested territory. The turbine, delivered to a Kajuki dam will help provide electricity to 1.5 million Afghans and improve irrigation. The British tricked the Taleban with the oldest trick in the book, they made it look like they were going to go to the dam one way, along Highway 611, but instead took another route taking a secret path across the desert.
