Engagements air-air et pertes aériennes pendant les guerres du Golf de 1991 à 2003

le Lun 13 Nov - 20:21

Je suis tombé "par hasard" sur un article assez sympa, sur un forum Irakien, qui regroupes les différentes pertes et engagements air-air lors des deux dernières guerre du Golf. Beaucoup d'aéronefs que l'on utilise ou que l'on va utiliser dans DCS sont présents.

C'est très intéressants et les petites histoires dans l'Histoire vous plaisent, il y a pas mal de choses à trouver sur les différents événements  Smile .

Certains sont assez connus et d'autre beaucoup moins (comme le coup du HARM dans le B-52  Shocked ).

List of air losses and victories during Gulf War 1991 till 2003.


USA force

January 17-1991 F/A-18C Hornet from the carrier USS Saratoga "Captain Michael Scott Speicher" was shot down on the first night of the war by Iraqi MiG-25PDS flown by Lt. Zuhair Dawood of the 84th squadron of the IrAF,fired an R-40TD missile.The missile impacted Scott Speicher's jet head on when he was travelling Mach 0.92. The impact sent the aircraft spiraling downwards and most people believe Speicher died on the impact of the missile.
In another incident, an Iraqi MiG-25PD, after eluding eight U.S. Air Force F-15s, fired three missiles at General Dynamics EF-111A Raven electronic warfare aircraft, forcing them to abort their mission and leave attacking aircraft without electronic jamming support.
In yet another incident, two MiG-25s approached a pair of F-15s, fired missiles (which were evaded by the F-15s), and then outran the American fighters. Two more F-15s joined the pursuit, and a total of 10 air-to-air missiles were fired at the MiG-25s, although none reached them.According to the same sources, at least one F-111 was also forced to abort its mission by a MiG-25 on the first 24 hours of hostilities, during an air raid over Tikrit.

B-52G "Nicknamed In Harm's Way"
Other Iraqi air-to-air kills are reported in Russian sources, where the US claims other cases of combat damage, such as the B-52 "In HARM's way", which the US claims was hit by friendly fire, when an AGM-88 High-speed, Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM) homed on the fire-control radar of the B-52's tail gun; the jet was subsequently renamed "In HARM's Way! Iraqi / Russian sources reported that in the Gulf War of 1990-1991 an Iraqi MIG-29s managed to damage an American B-52G, nicknamed "In Harm's Way" with a R-27R missile. According to USAF the incident was a rather unusual case of friendly-fire: the B-52G defensive gun operator is reported to have locked onto a friendly F-4G Wild Weasel jet on his fire-control radar, suspecting it to be an Iraqi MiG. The Weasel recognized being tracked by a fire-control radar and responded by firing a HARM anti-radiation missile, which hit the B-52. This incident was also the reason the aircraft, which survived the damage, was later nicknamed "In Harm's Way".



Desert storm dogfights

Iraqi air force

In the Gulf War of 1990-1991, when the Coalition intervened, they faced the world's fourth largest air force to combat. In the opening days of the war, many air-air engagements occurred, where Iraqi interceptors would engage Coalition ones and vice-versa. This is a list of all known air-air engagements that occurred during the Gulf War.

USAF EF-111 vs. IRAF Mirage F-1
In the opening minutes of the Gulf War on 17 January 1991, an unarmed USAF EF-111, crewed by Captain James A. Denton and Captain Brent D. Brandon scored a kill against an Iraqi Dassault Mirage F1EQ, which they managed to maneuver into the ground, making it the only F-111 to achieve an aerial victory over another aircraft. According to Iraqi sources confirmed that Iraqi Mirage F-1EQ piloted by Najim Abdullah Al-Jubouri didn't crash, but managed to hit the F-111 with Magic missile. Probably an early detonation of missile have confused pilots as both sides claim victory.

17 January 1991

USAF F-15C vs. IRAF MiG-29

The first air-air kills of the war occurred when two USAF F-15Cs shot down two Iraqi MiG-29s
17th January 91 - An Iraqi MiG-29 Shot down by F-15C 85-119 58 TFS/33 TFW pilot on K. "J.B." Kelk.
17th January 91 - An Iraqi MIG-29 shot down by F-15C 85-125 58 TFS/33 TFW pilot Capt. Chuck "Sly" Magill (USMC).

IrAF MiG 29 vs RAF GR.1 Panavia Tornado

19th January 1991 - An Iraqi Mig-29 Hit the ground while trying to avoid F-15C 85-114 58 TFS/33 TFW pilot Capt. Cesar "Rico" Rodriguez, "Jameel Sayhood was an Iraqi pilot in the Gulf War who it is claimed managed to attain one of the few aerial victories by the Iraqi Air Force in his MiG-29B, before being shot down by USAF Captain Craig Underhill and Captain Cesar Rodriguez with their F-15Cs mere minutes after his air-air victory" Captain Sayhood was flying his MiG-29B in Iraq on the third day of the war in order to root out and shoot-down Coalition aircraft bombing Iraq. It is claimed that RAF pilots Gary Lennox and Adrian Weeks were flying their Panavia Tornado on a bombing mission at Tallil Airfield in Iraq. Sayhood spotted them and promptly brought them down with an R-60 missile from his MiG's arsenal.Weeks and Lennox were killed in the crash of their aircraft, serial ZA467. However this aircraft is recorded as having crashed on 22 January on a mission to Ar Rutbah.

USAF F-15Es vs IrAF MiG 29

Sayhood continued his mission defending Iraqi airspace and came across two F-15Cs piloted by Captains Craig Underhill and Cesar Rodriguez. Underhill and Rodriguez spotted a pair of MiG-29s and gave chase when AWACS picked up Sayhood and his wingman. Sayhood and his wingman promptly engaged the two American aircraft and one of the most intense dogfights of the Gulf War ensued. The two MiGs and F-15s flew straight at each other, each attempting to visually identify their aggressors. Underhill faced Sayhood's wingman, while Sayhood himself faced Rodriguez. Underhill fired an AIM-7 at Sayhood's wingman, hitting him head on and killing him instantly.At the same time this was happening, Rodriguez sensed a radar lock by Sayhood, throwing him onto the defensive. Rodriguez dove down to the deck in order to confuse Sayhood's radar with ground clutter, hoping to shake the radar lock on his aircraft. After seeing his wingman killed, Sayhood briefly broke off the attack. Rodriguez and Underhill started heading south for a tanker, when Sayhood approached them from the north. Rodriguez and Underhill turned around to face Sayhood. Underhill got a radar lock on Sayhood with an AIM-7, but didn't fire because he wasn't sure if Sayhood was friendly or not. Sayhood sliced into their formation causing a "classic merge". Underhill climbed, keeping his lock on Sayhood, while Rodriguez stayed committed to the merge in order to visually identify the aircraft as hostile. As they passed each other, Rodriguez identified it as Iraqi, and each pilot turned left to engage the other. Sayhood was relying on the MiG's better turning radius to get onto Rodriguez's tail. They slowly spiraled towards the ground until Sayhood attempted to pull out using a split-s. Rodriguez didn't follow, and just before Sayhood could pull out, he crashed into the ground. He managed to eject from his MiG, however it is unknown if he survived.

USAF F-15Cs vs. IRAF MiG-25s

Two IRAF MiG-25s fired missiles at a group of F-15Cs escorting a bombing run in Iraq (which were evaded by the F-15s). The F-15Cs give chase, but were forced to give up when the MiGs outran them. A total of 10 missiles were fired at the MiGs.

USAF F-111s vs. IRAF MiG-23

An Iraqi MiG-23 fired a R24T missile at a F-111 on a bombing run and scored a hit, although the bomber made it safely back to base. Another similar incident occurred with the same Iraqi interceptor several minutes later, this F-111 also made it back to base despite the severe damage to the aircraft. This is Iraq's only aerial victory of the Gulf War using MiG-23s.
IRAF MiG-29 vs USAF F-111 and B-52G
An Iraqi MiG-29 struck an F-111 aircraft with a R60 missile, though the sturdy F-111 stayed airworthy. Several minutes later the same pilot fired a R27 missile at a B-52G on a bombing run, severely damaging it [ R-27R missile/Nicknamed In Harm's Way].

Beyond visual range or BVR kill, four MiG-23s took off from an Iraqi airbase wasn't armed, caught them trying to flee to Iran. One of them turned back with mechanical problems, however the other three pressed on. Four F-15Cs were flying when AWACs reported the MiGs. The four F-15s lined up, were assigned targets and fired AIM-7 missiles at all of them, destroying all three MiGs within seconds of each other. Only three of the F-15C pilots were granted kills, as the fourth missile didn't reach the MiG until after it had already been brought down.
26th January 1991 - An Iraqi MIG-23 (an unarmed,headed to Iran) Shot down by F-15C 85-104 58 TFS/33 TFW pilot Capt. Rhory "Hoser" Draeger.
