Scenraio - Circa 15 sept 1990 - during the Gulf War, in response to coalition air strikes against his forces, Saddam Hussein ordered a series of SCUD missile strikes against Saudi Arabia and Isreal. In response coalition commanders commited special operations forces to the mobile SCUD hunt. They drew from Delta Force troops and British SAS squadrons in theater. An operation was quickly drawn up for them to enter the desert and seek out the SCUDs, their launchers and associated infrastructure. The problem was the mobile launchers which could operate anywhere in the vast western Iraqi desert. These were virtually impossible to find from the air.
