The Israelis apparently are getting a special F-35I. This one will come wit lots of sensors that the normal F-35s will not. The intent is to allow Israel to test and add their specific and unique weapons to the F-35.

I have to admit I am a little uncomfortable with this. The chinese-israeli relationship isn't exactly a secret and other allies have been adding their own weapons (meteor) without a special bird like this. Maybe I am wrong though?

Israel get's our Best..... That's how it is. At some point the jets will be too fast for humans and become RC. Millions of American kids pretty good on those controllers.

They are approved to purchase the aircraft and it is their money so why not customize it to their own needs. Israel has some mighty technology of their own and are starting to sell some of that technology on the open market just like the US. As for China, they have the J31 which according to some reports is superior to the F35. The Russian fighter is also believed to be superior so maybe its time to develop the next platform, and I am certain they already have it which is why we now allow export of the F-35.

Nope, too much lag.

Zaphod58 probably knows more. But from my understanding the Israelis want to be able to install their own stuff.

I would suppose controllers and craft would be within the same theatre. and lags a non issue.

Yes it is. You're talking satellite links, even if they're in theatre together. They're operating beyond line of sight, so have to have a sat link. That means lag right now.

The Israelites don't have the ability to betray us right now on the 35. We armed Saudi Arabia air Force to let them know that we are ensuring they stay toe to line. If they cross us and lose material and intelligence support their Life expectancy will be decades. With us Israel will ensure forever, without us?

That didn't stop them with the Lavi.

So if the F-35 turns out to be a joke against the Chinese and Russian versions, why not let the Israelis pimp it up?
We still have the edge with the triangles don't we? Didn't some of those foreign people steal the F-22 and F-35 plans about a decade ago? It has been suggested that the F-35, at least, was only an effort to draw down the development funds of the other guys and give America a bigger edge with the triangle craft while also giving aerospace workers something to do that we couldn't send to China for building.

They will be selling them empty airframes more than likely and maybe the engines.Knowing Israel they will standardise it to their way.
