#3 Electronic Warfare Equipment?

I don't remember seeing that in the Quran.

The Iranians are smart, they have lots of money, this is probably some really good equipment the Russkies and the ChiComs yanked out of their MIG's about five years ago and unloaded it on the Mullahs....

I think I'll take our current generation of electronic warfare gizmos over Russian and Chinese war surplus...

It will be interesting to see what happens when these guys go up against a F-22 or an updated F-15.

Likely. Also possibly black-market European.

#6 All the new electronics will do is notify them a minute or so in advance of them being shot down.

The secrets are in the software and systems integration, Snowy.

#9 They could have the best electronic shit in the world but without intense training, it will help little.

I bet they have 30 year old Russian/Chinese crap that the pilots barely know how to use.

Maned aerial targets anyone?

#10 I hope so, Pappy.

Just pointing out that a lot of our base assumptions may be being challenged as electronics becomes more and more an easily available commodity.

#11 Iranians have world class propaganda and not much else.
