A partially declassified CIA analysis of the Iraqi military conducted in 1995, after the first Gulf War. Lot of good scenario what-ifs for if it was able to rearm and reinforce.

Most relevant for scenarios, their wish list would be around 50 "modern aircraft" (likely Flankers of some kind) and 10 battalions of double-digit SAMs.

I can suggest another trove of documents IRT the 91 Gulf War,

https://conflictrecords.wordpress.com/collections/sh/

Specifically, you want to get document SH-AADF-D-000-396. This goes to describe, in pretty good detail (at least better than what I've seen from Coalition Unclassified sources) the actions of Iraqi Air Force and Air Defense Force during the invasion of Kuwait and then Desert Shield/Desert Storm. It's directly translated from Iraqi into English so it contains the translated versions of the security handlers. It goes into great detail of Iraqi OOBs (from Iraqi sources, and what they perceived as OOBs of "the enemy"


Edited to Add: The Institute for Defense Analyses released a report revised in May of 2008 which is also a translation of captured documents of the 1991 war in 2003 as part of OIF, and also direct interviews from primary sources. If you want the tic-tock of the invasion of Kuwait, and the Mother of All Battles from the direct Iraqi perspective, this is the go-to document.
