77. That's a max no payload range
But essentially you're right. US pilots flew A4s to Israel in the 1973 war by crossing the Atlantic. They needed external fuel stores and to rendezvous with tankers in mid Atlantic. Generally A4s have about a 500 nm radius for tactical strikes. They could have extra fuel tanks which could be removed on landing at American bases in Iraq and their weapons payload could be uploaded at that point by American crews.
