The US is testing Iranian Air Defenses
Read it here.
The U.S. aircraft said to have entered Iranian air space included F-16 multi-role fighters and F/A-18 attack jets, the reports said. The Iranian media said the aircraft appeared to have been sent on reconnaissance missions over Iran's nuclear sites, particularly in the southwestern province of Khuzestan.Our geography is rusty -- but southwest Iran sounds like close to Bushehr. We welcome comments from those more familiar with US aircraft and their reconnaissance capabilities. We think any US fighter platform can perform in a reconnaissance role, with Forward-Looking Infrared Radar, but could be way off on this.
