As in all IAF aircraft, the stealth fighter named Adir, will have Israeli weapons and aviation systems integrated into the aircraft, advancing its technological capabilities, while also injecting millions of Shekels into the local economy.

The ceremony was attended by officials from U.S. aerospace company Lockheed Martin, which produces the F-35, and Israel’s Defense Ministry.

Israel has ordered 33 F-35s at the average cost of $110 million per plane. The first two F-35s are scheduled to arrive in Israel in December. The rest of the planes will be delivered to Israel by 2021.

    Piss off Isreal..nobody likes you.

  4. Andrew Taylor says:

    This is wonderful news. Israel is the West’s first line of defence.
    I encourage everyone to support Israel with generous donations for their much needed defence, in a world that is changing rapidly every day.
    G-D bless Israel.

    antisemites like you are prophecied about in Ezekiel #38 and #38. i hope you get your chance to take part in the doomed attack on Israel described in that prophecy, to join your Gog and Magog brothers as they perish in the Negev desert

  6. 75skydog says:

    embarrassingly, most of the diabolical antisemitic rhetoric like that from the dark heart of “jewhater”, are increasingly emanating from the former Christian nation of my birth, the United States of America. All praises to the God of Isaac, Abraham and Yakov for this procurement to Israel’s self defense from the muslim-brotherhood-ruled Former United States. Now if only the A-10 Warthog planes could be donated to the Israeli Air Force, it would have all it needs
