Does anyone know if there are any RAF aircraft in Afghanistan, if so what are they?

Thanks, EGFFbmi

I'd guess only regular movements are transport types, C-130, C-17, VC-10, Tristar.
Last year, when the Marines were deployed, Chinooks and Army/RM choppers, but probably not now, save for some Gazelles/Lynx's that maybe are deployed with UK forces, but it's only a relatively small force so maybe not.
During the 2001 campaign, Canberra PR.9s provided recce, as well as VC-10/Tristars providing tanker support for USN/USMC aircraft.
