The Operation Biting ("bite"), also known as the raid de Bruneval, was a British raid of the World War II carried out by the Royal Air Force, a parachute regiment, the Royal Navy, and troops specially trained for commando action. The operation took place on the cliff at La Poterie-Cap-d'Antifer, on the Normandy coast, on the night of February 27-28, 1942.
Its aim was to seize the main components of a Germanradar, whose specifications and technology were unknown to the Allies at the time, while making it look as if it had been destroyed.
