I can provide, if you want, a list "tests"/attacks (yet unpublished)
that can be performed with the tools. It's certainly not the raw packets
that you requested, but still certainly narrows down *a lot*  the
possible combinations.

There are examples in the "manual pages", and, as noted above, I've a
set of "companion documents" that tell you exactly how to run the tools
to perform different types of attacks. Please let me know if this would
be of any help, and I'll make sure to provide such info.
