Viewing Topic "Nuclear Raids"
|Posted by: Iron Claw||
I believe a great book or several books on the Raid series will be about the three air raids on nuclear facilities: 1. Operation Scorch Sword, 30 September 1980, performed by the Iranian Air Force on the Iraqi Osirak reactor. 2. Operation Babylon, 7 June 1981, performed by the Israeli Air Force on the same Iraqi Osirak reactor. 3. Operation Orchard, 6 September 2007, performed by the Israeli Air Force on the Syrian Deir ez-Zor reactor.

|Agree with the previous poster. Operation Babylon (AKA Opera, cooler and most of all more secretive name if you ask me) is an excellent fit, but there is in all likelihood too little material available on the others. The Iranian strike should make it in to the book though, as an important prequel to the Israeli strike (I believe the Iranians also supplied aerial photos and other intelligence).|
