The Perfect Soldier: Special Operations, Commandos, and the Future of Us Warfare by James F. Dunnigan
Dirty Little Secrets
Practice For The Iran Raid
Israeli officials have quietly revealed that the force sent to bomb a Sudanese weapons plant on October 23rd, consisted of eight F-15I fighter-bombers, four of them carrying two 2000 pound (909 kg) smart bombs each. In support were two combat search and rescue helicopters, a G-550 electronics warfare aircraft, and a B-707 aerial refueling aircraft. The flight was about 1,900 kilometers each way. The eight bombs are believed to have destroyed 200 tons of Iranian made munitions destined for Hamas in Gaza. Only the four F-15Is with the bombs entered Sudanese air space, and the entire force promptly headed back north in international air space after the eight smart bombs hit their targets. Israel has space satellites for checking on the damage.
