being built in Germany*

Why do German taxpayers pay for nuclear submarines for Israel?
For atrocities committed against Jews, such as the Holocaust back in WW2.

Israel, US, UK Hold First Joint F-35 Exercise
26 June 2019

Exercise “Tri-Lightning” was a one-day defensive counter air exercise involving friendly and adversary aircraft from the three participating countries and consisted of active and passive air defense operations

8579



F-35 stealth fighter jets from the United States, United Kingdom and Israel participated in a joint exercise over the eastern Mediterranean Sea on Tuesday.
The exercise took place during IAF week, marking 71 years since the establishment of the Israeli Air Force.

The drill, dubbed “Tri-Lightning,” was the first time in history that F-35 fighters from several air forces participated in a joint drill.

The exercise simulated survival scenarios and defense against varying threats from advanced aircraft, including the F-35 itself.

The IDF underscored that the exercise was pre-scheduled as part of the annual training graph and constitutes a unique opportunity for the joint training of the fifth-generation combat aircraft. Furthermore, the exercise enabled the cooperation between the air forces and the development of joint capabilities.

The Air Force maintains and continues to hold significant international training to strengthen future military cooperation, with an emphasis on advancing the F-35 capabilities, the IDF added.

IAF Chief of Air Staff Brig. Gen. Amnon Ein-Dar stated that the exercise was “the first international F-35 exercise, reflecting the close cooperation between the forces. International cooperation between Israel, the US and Britain reinforce common interests and new and exclusive capabilities in the Middle East.”

Elbit Introduces New Vehicle-Launched Multirotor Micro-Drone


Elbit Systems has launched an autonomous multirotor Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS)
According to the company, the new micro-drone, called MAGNI, is designed to enhance the situational awareness capabilities of mobile forces significantly.

The lightweight (2.5kg) system can be deployed and launched in less than one minute from any combat vehicle, Elbit said. It includes a thermal payload, a communications suite (dual S-Band or LTE), an automatic coordinate tracking capability, as well as a built-in interface with Battle Management Systems (BMS).

MAGNI can carry payloads of up to 350g, has a range of up to 3km, a maximum operational altitude of 4000ft, and 30 minutes of endurance.
The new micro-drone enables vehicle-mounted forces at the squad, platoon, and company levels to gather beyond-the-hill visual intelligence during day and night, and seamlessly feed target information to command and control systems.
