The operation was preplanned as a sweeping operation to destroy all of the Egyptian surface-to-air missile batteries on the Egyptian front, by using unguided, general-use bombs dropped from a medium altitude near the targets. The attacking aircraft were to approach the targets at a very low altitude, in order to avoid being detected by Egyptian radars (especially fire control and target acquisition radars such as the Flat Face radar and Long Track radar).
The operation was composed of three attack waves, the first of which was to disable Egyptian air force bases, while the aim of the following two waves was to demolish the Egyptian missile batteries.
The operation was discontinued after the first attack wave damaged several Egyptian air force bases due to the need for more air power on the Syrian front and in order to execute Operation Doogman 5.
