The General Dynamics F-111 “Aardvark” entered service in 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed for interdiction and tactical strikes. The F-111 was used as an all-weather attack aircraft capable of low-level penetration of enemy territory. It also could be used for reconnaissance and electronic warfare. Some unique features are variable geometry wings, the 2 crew members sat side by side in an escape capsule, internal weapons bay; terrain following radar and after burning turbofans. The USAF retired their last F-111 in 1998 but the RAAF continued to use theirs.
In October 1993 the 429th ECS (Electronic Combat Squadron) “Black Falcons” became the only USAF unit equipped with the EF-111 Ravens. EF-111 Ravens provided tactical electronic jamming support to coalition forces enforcing Operation Provide Comfort that was a military operation to defend Kurds fleeing their homes in northern in 1991. On August 26, 1992 the United States began Operation Southern Watch to enforce United Nations sanctions against Iraq. The USAF officially retired the EF-111A in June 1998, and the 429th ECS was inactivated June 19, 1998.
