Vietnam Mission 18
Iron Hand - Wild Weasel
DATE: Aug 8, 1972
MiGMan's Combat Diary
Aircraft: They recommend the F-4B,
I suggest the F-4J Phantom II
Mission Map: Change the flight plan as shown at right. Don't ask me what the E-2C Hawkeye could possibly be doing stooging around over North Vietnam!
Load Ordnance: Try a mixture of AGM-45 Shrike and Mk-84 Slicks. As usual, lose the two external fuel pods and adjust internal fuel to 79%
Notes: Keep a sharp lookout for MiGs.
Use the Wild Weasel checklist.
