Not this time, not like Iraq. An Iranian air raid success would depend entirely on the initial attack being a total and complete surprise. Iran’s
ONLY chance in a war with the west is ground to air defenses, it would be critical to knock these out as fast as possible, and a surprise stealth
attack would be the only way. I’m certain Iran’s anti aircraft ability is superior to Iraq’s so surprise is critical.
I would bet the biggest possible stealth aircraft attack covering critical air routes to start, and literally moments later a massive barrage of
cruise missiles over the same areas. The goal here would be to knock out detection, SAM, and communication stations creating a wide corridor for non
stealth manned attack aircraft right into Tehran, like a highway. Immediately following that attack, hundreds or even thousands of coalition aircraft
systematically destroying every anti aircraft device along this corridor, all this within the first hour or so of the initial stealth attack.
I would bet the initial attack would not come from the sea like they would think either…Iran is currently sitting in the middle of a
coalition sandwich…So who knows…
Iran couldn’t know for any reason, it would make the whole ting much more risky.
