Wild Weasel 'YGBSM' (Red) Wild Weasel 'YGBSM' (Red)
Size: 4"
In Stock: >5
Price: $7.99

Wild Weasel is a code name given by the United States Armed Forces, specifically the US Air Force, to an aircraft, of any type, equipped with radar-seeking missiles and tasked with destroying the radars and SAM installations of enemy air defense systems. "The first Wild Weasel success came soon after the first Wild Weasel mission 20 December 1965 when Captains Al Lamb and Jack Donovan took out a site during a Rolling Thunder strike on the railyard at Yen Bai, some 75 miles northwest of Hanoi." The Wild Weasel concept was developed by the United States Air Force in 1965, after the introduction of Soviet SAM missiles and their downing of U.S. strike aircraft over the skies of North Vietnam. This mission was flown by the F-4, F-100, A-4, F-105 and now the F-16 with the F-35 slated to replace them. This is the red version of that historic patch and comes with velcro attached.
