The Israeli government has issued letters of request for the purchase of between three and five Lockheed Martin C-130J-30 tactical transports and an initial 25 Lockheed F-35 Joint Strike Fighters. Robert Trice, the company's senior vice-president for business development, confirmed the developments during a press conference in Tel Aviv on 22 May.
Israeli defense industry executives are reporting that the U.S. has frozen Israel out of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter development of a program as punishment for its military cooperation with China, including its work on Harpy anti-radar attack UAVs acquired by China from state-owned Israel Aircraft Industries in 1994. Israeli Defense Ministry officials refused to confirm the report, noting only that they were in dialogue and hoped that “within its framework understandings will be reached soon.”
