* WildWeasel: One mission flown in the movie has them in a variant of the Intruder designed for "Iron Hand" missions, hunting down enemy AntiAir radar sites. A key weapon in this mission is the Shrike, which can follow the enemy's radar signal to the target. The climactic battle at the end of the film has the Intruders flying a daylight mission to suppress enemy air defenses and clear a safe path for the Air Force bombers.
