Looking for information as to what Wild Weasel units wore the shown patches.

The Blue patch was either the 6010th or 17th Wild Weasel but what about the yellow and the subdued green and black patch?

Any info is appreciated.

Blue and green are 17 WWS, yellow is 561 TFS sent TDY to Thailand as part of buildup in 1972.

Was there a difference in patches between the 17th WWS and the 6010th WWS?

This was the first one used for sure by the 6010 WWS. It was around for 1 year then designated the 17 WWS. The other patch may have also been used, but the early ones didn't seem to have the black details or just some of them. I'm sure like most things bled over a bit, but the one you show looks like the later version circa 1972 or so.
