copied from Wikipedia:

"From January 1984 to September 1986, an F-15A was used as a launch platform for five ASM-135 anti-satellite (ASAT) missiles. The F-15A went into a Mach 1.22, 3.8 g climb of 65° and released the ASAT missile at an altitude of 38,100 feet (11.6 km). "

I thought the ASAT launch altitude was significantly higher than that.

This is a huge blow as well to the Saudi Air Force, assuming they're grounding theirs as well.

Ditto the Israeli's.
