Iron Dome per gli Americani ?
Israel’s state-owned Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Raytheon, its US partner for Iron Dome production, are working to transform the combat-proven Israeli interceptor into a fully American system in defense of forward-deployed US forces.
Americanized versions of the Iron Dome’s Tamir interceptors are being offered under the Raytheon-trademarked SkyHunter brand for a US Army program aimed at defending against a spectrum of threats, from cruise missiles and UAVs to rockets, artillery and mortars.
The Israeli-designed Tamir interceptor has already been adapted for launch from the US Army’s developmental Multi-Missile Launcher (MML), part of the service’s Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 — Intercept (IFPC Inc 2-I) program.

"Israel, US Agree to 10-Year Defense Deal" .....
US and Israeli diplomats announced the largest military assistance package in US history on 14 September in a $38 billion, 10-year package that will deliver an assortment of American-designed weapon systems, including Lockheed Martin F-35 and Boeing F-15 fighters to Tel Aviv.
The agreement, which takes effect on 1 October 2018, pledges $38 billion to Israel over the next decade, including $33 billion in foreign military financing funds and $5 billion for missile defense, US national security advisor Susan Rice said.
In a surprise move, Rice added to the F-15E to the mix of weapon systems on the agenda for the 10-year aid package, perhaps reducing funds available to purchase Israel’s planned complement of 75 F-35I Adirs.

Following the signing of the largest military aid package in US history, the US Air Force confirmed the transfer of 10 Boeing F-15D fighters to Israel.
----- ----- ----- ----- -----
The 10 F-15Ds are excess defense articles, rather than foreign military sales, and the USAF has delivered eight to Israel so far, defence sources told FlightGlobal.
The two-seater variant of the F-15 is a trainer aircraft but can also be used for air-to-air combat.

Comportamento anomalo .....
Israel used its indigenous Shavit launcher on Tuesday to loft Ofek 11, its latest and most advanced spy satellite, into space, but program officials say they are concerned by its “behavior” and are unsure whether it will successfully fulfill its intended eight-year remote sensing mission.
“We made contact with the satellite, but its not yet clear that all is well,” Amnon Harari, director of the Defense Ministry’s Space Administration, told reporters here.
“We’re checking its systems, but it is not behaving as expected … there are parameters that are not behaving as we expected, and this worries us to some extent,” he said.
Program officials say it could take days to discern specific reasons for the undisclosed anomalies and to stabilize the situation.

Stanno per arrivare !
It’s two weeks to the touchdown of the world’s most advanced fighter jet in Israel.
Due to touch down December 12 at the Nevatim Air Force Base near Beersheba, the F-35 is expected to give Israel total air dominance in the Middle East for at least the next 40 years.
Israeli Air Force officers said the fifth-generation stealth fighter jet equipped with the latest technology, known in Israel as the “Adir,” meaning “awesome” or “mighty,” will allow Israel to attack places it has not been capable of attacking in the past.

Only 16 hours after landing in Israel, the “Adir” (F-35I) stealth fighters took off for their first sortie, escorted by “Sufa” (F-16I) fighters.
This time, the jets were flown by Lt. Col. Yotam, the Commander of the “Golden Eagle” Squadron and Maj. D’, his Deputy and not by American pilots, as they were yesterday.

(*) .....
After four months of studying the jet in the U.S, the first “Adir” aircrews have returned to Israel from conversion training, joined by Nevatim AFB Commander and the “Adir” Simulator Officer.
“Each one of us performed about 32 sorties in the advanced simulator”, shared Lt. Col. Yotam, Commander of the “Golden Eagle” Squadron.
Differently to the other countries that came here to train, we didn’t fly it in the training center, a fact that shouldn’t pose a safety issue. The American instructors will come assist us in the first stories (?) in order to maximize the efficiency of our training”.

Un' accurata pianificazione durata anni .....
Nearly a decade of planning preceded Monday's scheduled delivery of the first F-35Is to the Israel Air Force (IAF), but once they touch down at the stealth fighter’s desert base at Nevatim, another process will just begin, with vast implications on how Israel wields airpower near and very far from home.
From the single network that will support the IAF’s ability to use the fifth-generation Adir (Awesome/Magnificent) alongside fourth-generation fighters to hunt and fight in packs to the means by which it trains and maintains its combined force, the new F-35Is will be driving wholesale changes throughout the mightiest air force in the Middle East.
“The IAF needs to adapt itself to this fifth-generation plane, and not vice versa,” a general officer on the IAF Air Staff told Defense News.

Israele deve decidere ..... più F-15I o F-35I ?
Negotiations about a possible follow-on purchase of advanced Boeing F-15s for the Israeli air force are continuing, as the nation’s cabinet seeks a possible alternative to acquiring additional Lockheed Martin F-35s.
In November 2016, the Israeli government approved the purchase of another 17 F-35Is, bringing to 50 the number of “Adir” strike aircraft planned for its air force.
The service has been evaluating a purchase of more F-15Is to maintain its desired mix of strike aircraft with the F-35 to satisfy future operational needs. Its initial requirement was identified as for 75 F-35s, but the need to replace the oldest examples of its Boeing-built fighter has become a high priority issue.
Israel has operated the twin-engined type since 1976.

A senior Israeli Air Force officer on Monday provided operational context to the unusual March 17 Arrow intercept of a Syrian SA-5 surface-to-air missile, which the jointly developed U.S.-Israel anti-ballistic missile system was not designed to fight.
Briefing reporters here, the officer said the Syrian SAM launched against Israeli fighter aircraft following a bombing mission in Syria “behaved like a ballistic threat” with “an altitude, range and ballistic trajectory” that mimicked the Scud-class targets the Arrow 2 interceptor was designed to kill.
“It wasn’t a Scud-class ballistic threat. But from our perspective, it doesn’t matter if it was a SAM. Once it behaved like a ballistic missile weighing tons and with a warhead of hundreds of kilograms, we couldn’t allow it to threaten our cities and towns,” the officer said.
When asked to identify the specific threat, the officer confirmed that the Arrow 2 had indeed scored its first operational intercept against a Syrian SA-5.
“In this case, it behaved just like a ballistic missile,” he added.
