EF-111s provided tactical electronic jamming support to coalition forces enforcing Operation Provide Comfort, which was a military operation to defend Kurds fleeing their homes in northern Iraq in the aftermath of the 1991 Gulf War. On August 26, 1992 the United States began Operation Southern Watch to enforce U.N sanctions against Iraq. The USAF officially retired the EF-111 in June 1998 and the 429th ECS was inactivated on June 19, 1998 at Cannon AFB, NM.Realistic panel lines

The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark entered service with the US Air Force in July 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed for interdiction and tactical strike. The F-111 was also used as a strategic bomber, reconnaissance and an electronic warfare aircraft. Some unique features of the F-111 when it was introduced included variable-geometry wings, crew seating in an escape capsule cockpit, terrain following radar and afterburning turbofan engines.
