Author and historian Mike Guardia joins us to discuss his latest book Skybreak looking at the career of the US Air Force’s F-15Cs during Operation Desert Storm.
Mr. Guardia specifically looks at the McDonnell Douglas/Boeing F-15C Eagle combat aircraft flown by the US Air Force’s 58th Fighter Wing. These jets supported the air campaign accompanying the eviction of Iraq from Kuwait by a US-led coalition in 1991.
We talk about the important role of the aircraft’s electronic warfare systems and radars during their deployment. Mr. Guardia is an old friend of the podcast, having joined us back in November 2020 to discuss his book Foxbat Tales: The MiG-25 in Combat.
