SEAD is sometimes a misspelling of said.
SEAD a.k.a. Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses, also known as "Wild Weasel" and "Iron Hand" operations in the United States, are military actions to suppress enemy surface-based air defenses, including not only surface-to-air missiles and anti-aircraft artillery but also interrelated systems such as early-warning radar and command, control and communication functions. This suppression can be accomplished both by physically destroying the systems or by disrupting and deceiving them through electronic warfare. In modern warfare SEAD missions can constitute as much as 30% of all sorties launched in the first week of combat and continue at a reduced rate through the rest of a campaign. One quarter of American combat sorties in recent conflicts have been SEAD missions.
