WATCH: The New Israeli Warplane that Makes its Enemies Shiver
Dec 7, 2016
Israel’s security cabinet recently announced it will purchase an additional F-35 advanced F-35 fighter jets from Lockheed Martin. The State of Israel will own 50 such planes.
“The F-35 (in Hebrew, the Adir) is not just another plane,” says a senior IDF official. “If, until now, we were in the third or fourth generation of planes, this one is not only a fifth generation plane – it is a leap of many generations forward. There is no plane with such capabilities in the world, and Israel will be the first country in the world to have such an advanced plane in operational use.”
Lieutenant Colonel Yotam, the Squadron leader of the F-35 planes who was involved in upgrading the F-16 Sufah planes, says that the F-35’s avionics capabilities, as well as the amount and quality of its sensors, place it in a class of its own.
