In the dynamic domain of air warfare, the past decade has witnessed a sophisticated evolution of air threats, meticulously designed to outmaneuver Ground-Based Air Defense (GBAD) systems employed by adversaries. Not only have these air threats undergone technological advancements, but their range and diversity have also expandedsigni ficantly. Certain formidable threats, once confined to the field of conventional forces, have now become more accessible and affordable to asymmetric enemy groups. This rapidly changing landscape presents a daunting challenge in ensuring tactical dominance across the entire spectrum of air threats, particularly for safeguarding critical infrastructures.
