    The Iraqi system was developed in collaboration between the Air Force and Air Defence Command after the 1991 defeat.

    It was called the "Sarab" system "Mirage".

    It was issued to Pechora units, and Iraqi officers from such units discussed it on the iraqi military forum. The system was designed to emulate the Pechora transmissions. It did not work with Kvadrat, OSA or ROLAND-II.

    80 such systems were deployed by the ADC in the No-Fly-Zones. They were singularly successful against HARM and ALARM... eventually the US began using AGM-130s in the late 1990s, and an alternative "signal jammer" was used to drive it off-course in the terminal guidance stages.

    Thank for the insight Sheytan, that is most interesting. There sure is a lot of interesting (and surprising) stuff waiting to be found out about what really happened between 1990-2003, at least concerning iraqi aviation/AD matters.
