  1. Just waiting for the Iranian leg of the IAF's tour. The pyrotechnics from that performance we'll be seen far and wide!

    Anyone fancy a trip to Persia for the next few years?

    Accounts emerged today of an attack on a convoy which killed dozens of suspected arms smugglers in Sudan by foreign aircraft, which one report said were Israeli.

    The US channel CBS News reported that Israeli aircraft carried out the strike in January after Israeli intelligence discovered the trucks were intending to deliver arms through Sudan and across Egypt to be smuggled into Gaza. CBS said this account was the "semi-official American version" and said 39 people travelling in 17 trucks were reportedly killed.

  4. The IAF Are Good at Good at Long Range Air Attacks without the Rest of the World knowing. Specifically The Attack In Syria a few Year back or iraq in the 1980's. Suspiciously a few North Korean Reactor Techies died in the Attack in Syria.
     
  5. Russian and Ukrainian media also reported on it today...

  8. Dozens of aircraft eh?

    I'd take these claims with a large pinch of salt. Israeli PSYOPS jobs for the most part.
     
  9. The convoy was destroyed because it was carrying armaments bound for Hamas in the Gaza Strip. There is little effort done to hide the fact that weapons are smuggled through Sudan and Hamas has openly stated that it has strong ties and support from the Sudanese government.
     
  10. One or a dozen, who cares, they got the job done.
