Precision weapons took out Ghadaffi's surface-to-air missile sites and aircraft shelters. E/A-18G Growlers jammed Libyan electronics. F-15s and F-16s conducted both counter-air and surface-attack missions. Unmanned systems, most likely the Global Hawk, provided critical reconnaissance and surveillance.
