The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft: What It Brings to the IAF

| October 29, 2017

The F-35 Joint Strike fighter aircraft is about to become fully operational in the Israel Air Force. An intelligence-gathering machine in a league of its own, the F-35 can evade the various enemy radar systems deployed in the northern arena. It will play a key role in Israel’s quest to stop Iran and its proxies from creating a threatening military outpost in Syria, and will also help Israel guard against Hezbollah’s heavily armed fortress in Lebanon. The new platform will also boost Israel’s long-range capabilities.
