Podcast about a SEAD strike in Iraq pre-Gulf War II

Post by CV60 »

The Modern War institute at West Point had an oral history interview with Colonel Mike Pietrucha, describing his experience as an EWO in an F-15E Strike Eagle, enforcing the northern no-fly zone over Iraq in the 1990s. His description of an attack on a SA-3 site may be interesting for those intersted in SEAD. It begins around the 17 min mark of the podcast below:

Thanks :) I haven't watched that video yet, but that is some real interesting Youtube channel I must say. 3.5+ hours for "Wild Weasel Story", I must find the time to watch that :)
