      A horse

    • B.

      A dog

    Correct Answer
    D. A wild weasel
    Explanation
    The Baron is referred to as a wild weasel. A wild weasel is a term used in military aviation to describe an aircraft that is specifically designed to locate and destroy enemy radar installations. The term "wild weasel" originated during the Vietnam War and was used to describe aircraft that were tasked with suppressing enemy air defenses. These aircraft would fly ahead of the main strike force and draw out enemy radar by simulating an attack, allowing other aircraft to locate and destroy the radar installations. Therefore, The Baron is not a horse, dog, or hawk, but a wild weasel.
