Haven't read it, but fuck WoTR and fuck people who think low-altitude runs can replace stealth. Sensors are getting better and better, and it's not like you can just fly lower and lower.

 

For a sort of tangentially-related example, we're very close to ordnance that can guide itself via visual navigation alone. How safe do you think a low altitude bird will be with drones networked with AAA sites and that kind of sensor tech? And it's not like low-altitude attacks were very safe to begin with!

Read it - they actually run the numbers a bit to make an argument.

 

If you just want to be triggered by WoTR, however, then try this:

Iran received first S-300 AA systems.

 

More:

 

   The first S-300 air defense systems delivered to Iran, Tasnim news agency reported with reference to the representative of the Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Jaber Ansari. The report is also a link to the video of transport of components of the S-300, presumably in the Caspian province of Gilan. In the video are identified truck, semitrailers and auxiliary machines of the S-300, but no combat vehicles and missiles themselves.
