Very interesting, I was just looking up some specs about the bunker busters Israel might use.
As of 2004 Israel was the first country to buy the GBU 27 bunker buster, actually a GBU 24 redesigned for the F117!.. In 2006 the IDF bought some
more of the GBU 27.Now the GBU 28, which is a lot heavier around 5000 pounds, and can be thrown by the F15, might be too big for the f117 bombing
bay.Interesting is that during desert storm the nighthawks were used throwing the 27s at specific targets(digging the rose garden garden as tom Clancy
put it) then the F111 was flying in to end the targets with the heavier GBU 28.
According to Israeli military sources the GBU 27, which was thus designed for the nighthawk, could also be used
against Syria and Iran.One thing is for sure Israel is gonna throw a lot of planes in that direction, around 100 according to institute clingendael,
because the F15 can only carry one 27 and the nighthawk two 28 s, I believe there are around 5 targets and two of them deeply buried.
