RAF fighter jets targeted so-called Islamic State with Brimstone missiles for the first time.
The attacks targeted an IS vehicle and tunnels near the town of Raqqa, as well as the Omar oilfield in the east of the country near the border with Iraq on Sunday, said Downing Street.
According to the Ministry of Defence, the advanced radar-guided weapon lies at low level, using its on-board navigation systems, and can be used against moving targets.
Prime Minister David Cameron previously cited it as the kind of UK asset which would make a "meaningful difference" to the coalition's battle against IS in the run-up to an MPs vote on war in Syria.

The RAF scrambled Typhoon jets to intercept Russian military jets approaching British airspace last night.
Planes were sent from the air base at Lossiemouth, north east Scotland, after two Russian Tu-160 Blackjack bomber planes were sighted flying over the Atlantic towards the UK.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said the Russian aircraft were escorted until they were clear of the UK area of interest. At no time did they cross into UK sovereign airspace, he added.
It is the latest in a number of incidents in recent months in which Moscow has sent planes skirting the edge of British airspace in a legal but provocative move amid worsening international relations.
