Subject: Iran's Air Defense Capabilities vs Israeli airstrikes? US Airstrikes?
HeavyD    8/21/2012 2:56:10 PM
Does Iran have the capability of mounting a serious defense against a well-planned and well-executed bombing campaign given Israel's considerable experience and equipment for suppressing air defenses? Sure an AAA gun can always get a lucky hit, and are harder to target with SEAD assets (or to confuse with chaff/flares)than SAMs, so specifically what are the odds of an Iranian SAM success against a first strike or follow-on strikes? US stealth technology makes a SAM hit even less probable, but do we believe we have impunity/immunity if we are forced to get involved?
