US to sell 75, F35 fighter jets to Israel


timesofindia.indiatimes.com

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said on Monday that it had notified the Congress on Friday that Israel has asked to buy 25 of the F-35s made by Lockheed Martin Corp, with an option to buy an additional 50 at a later date.

Israel has said it plans to buy a fleet of F-35s as it upgrades its military technology. The first batch of 25 would be the variant of F-35 designed for conventional take off from military airfields, but the later 50 could include a version that can land vertically.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a statement that the proposed sale will help Israel "develop and maintain a strong self-defense capability." It also said that sale of the technologically advanced fighter won't upset the balance of military power in the region.

Lol the above statement is a joke, aint it? though this sale was expected; this would really bring the balance of military power more in favor of Israel. Now the Jews would whip Iranian arse with more technology & fire power.

The JSF is still under development. Full testing and evaluation is not expected to be complete until 2014. There would be no international deliveries until after that year. Unless Israel is given preference, it is unlikely they will see any deliveries earlier than 2016.

Yeah but no one gets the raptor you know why?

Because of the software.They wont part with the source code.
Military offered to sell raptors to allies no problem, but the cost of having them come and change everything and fix everything and upgrade everything ads up to some phenomenal amount of cash over the years in maintenance contracts.
They would pay triple for each plane just for that.
Because they wont part with the source code for the raptors, ever, to anyone.
So everyone just buys the f35.This is no big deal they sell them to all allied forces.With the source code.

They will get them dirt cheap if not for free courtesy of our Israeli sponsored representatives, and the massive foreign aid they get from us every year. Then after they receive their orders I'm sure they will take one apart to reverse engineer them to sell the tech off to other countries.

We are even installing advanced RADAR in their country. Luckily for our own interests we will be operating them. That probably wont last long before they start crying about something so that they can operate it themselves.

Bad idea overall IMO.

source code? What is soo special about the "source code"...What the defence force is worried if a allied country used the "source code" that they could download a pc game into the fighter planes?
