    In 1981 Israel sent specialy adapted F-15's to destroy a Nuclear reactor outside Bagdad.
    I found this really good 44 minute video on the Internet about ....Operation 'Opera'

    I thought they were only IDF F-16s. F-15s participated?

    that should read Iran not Iraq over the next 2 years, and we should let Israel go back and test out new weaponry, we can stay out of it......... as long as they paste the place clean so i can get my Velodrome built

    Eight F-16s and six F-15s for operation "Opera" were assigned. F-15s were only a figter cover (they operated in three pairs:"Patephone" near Karbala, "Petel" near Baghdad and "Pakhman" over H3 airfield area). Additional far support assured four F-15 over Israel/Jordan border. There two B 707 also were used (one as a flying tanker and another as a command comminication platform).

    Any questions?
