The Wild Weasel was a code name given to USAF aircraft capable of firing anti-radiation missiles. Their main task was Suppression of Enemy Air Defences /SAED/. In mid 1960s, Vietnamese forces were using Soviet SAM – Surface to Air Missiles. Those created a lot of troubles for US NAVY, Marines and Air Force aircraft. In order to counter the effectiveness of cheap and widely available SAMs, USAF introduced SAED equipped airplanes to fight the threat. They were called Wild Weasels. Several types were equipped with electronics to do the task, most noticeable of which were F-105s and F-4s. Latter one was further improved after the end of the conflict in South-East Asia.
