I'm guessing the Israeli Air Force is ramping up special air help... with their modified. F 35's
In the 70's the Iranian military rushed to help Israel....what a world


Yeah, but that was when Iran was more pro-western ideals. '79 is when they reverted back to the old ways after the revolution. What a world indeed.

CV-22s 12-0062 as SAMBA84, and unknown tail number as SAMBA82, along with a flight of 4 MC-130s operating as HOOCH41, 42, 21 and 22 departed Mildenhall heading east. The MC-130s will act as tankers for the Osprey.

ETA- Two more MV-22s callsign unknown just launched to join the others. SAMBA82 and 84 are most likely joined up with HOOCH21 and 22, and these two will join on 41 and 42.

750 troopers is not a small unit.
Even if some of that acts as logistical and only 500 are on security that's about 300-400 on guard daily not counting who's out on firewatch sleep.
That's a good ……. few city blocks or a fair few square miles of control. Wonder what their mission will be...


 


the battalion of Airborne will be tasked with mop-up of the radical/cells left behind in the confusion of the mob situation
they will also offer security for the teams that will seek out hidden bugs and hidden IEDs that the saboteur Iranian Guards left behind in the Embassy melee of Shiites from Iran hidden in the Protester crowds

Our Troops best be on top of the situation.... Iran & the Republic Guard are springing Asymmetric Warfare...

87-0045 is a C-5, probably inbound to Dover.

99-6143 is embassy security from State

10-5714 behind the C-32 is one of the HOOCH flight that's with the CV-22s.

With the exception of HOOCH and SAMBA flights, they're all C-17s that quick turned at Fort Bragg, picking up troops and equipment and heading to Iraq as soon as they were loaded. Each aircraft can carry 54 troops if they're also carrying pallets of cargo, or if they're in a straight passenger configuration, up to 134 troops.

RCH927 cleared the coast and has turned back. Looks like he's aborting back to Bragg. RCH663 and 688 are airborne and enroute. They may send 927 to Charleston instead. They have C-17s there so can either quickly fix it or launch a spare aircraft.

The four SAMBA birds will augment the MV-22s. They have more range because they have the refueling probes installed.

RCH626 is over the UK, RCH687 is heading for the coast over Maine. Two aircraft went into Rota, most likely for fuel, but possibly due to mechanical issues.

ETA- RCH429 just popped up about to drop over the UK.

ETA2- The C-32B is back up as VDR20.

RCH311 just launched from Joint Base Dix-McGuire and looks to be heading along behind the others.

ETA- RCH687 is landing at Bangor. Either for fuel, due to no tanker being airborne, or for mechanical problems. He actually appears to have come from Fort Campbell, probably with helicopters.
