The Wild Weasels – When Electronic Warfare Became Real
In many ways the story of the Wild Weasels is the story of the beginnings of electronic warfare between the radar crew on the ground and the weasels in the air. This was also the first time that electronics had been used to find targets actively during a mission rather than predetermined beforehand, and of course, this was matched only by the bravery of the men required to fly down a radar beam and put the site out of action before the missile got them.
