So...what I still don't get was why Russia didn't employ precision bombs during the Five Day War....as I'm sure they had at least some stored in the area.
Was there not enough warning before the shots fell?
(Not likely, as it doesn't take weeks to attach such weapons, given the pilots were used to operating them)
Was there simply a lack of precise reconnaissance?
(Sure, GLONASS might have been dodgy, so GPS-guiding was out...but TV and IR guiding?)
Simply too expensive?
From what I've read the Russians were pretty firm on only targetting military infrastructure as far as possible. With that tactic precision weapons should be the ultimate choice in weaponry, not crude dumb bombs that usually wipe out neighbourhoods.
Russian Airforce is in quite a bad shape.. Most of the fighting was done by Army. Funding priority all has given to Army but if nothing wrong since Russia is interlock in the main continent surrounded by many countries.
Even if it was in bad shape, they HAVE smart bombs in storage, most likely also in that area. And the airforce flew. It performed bombing runs (lots of them). Why would it be so hard to smack on a smart bomb instead of a dumb bomb? It's not like the wings of the aircraft would fall off...
