Israel to Purchase Lockheed Martin Military Jets

As part of the U.S. Foreign Military Sales process, the Israeli Air Force will purchase Lockheed Martin's next-generation F-35 Lightning II aircraft.

The fifth-generation fighter is being developed along with Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. The network-enabled aircraft has stealth technology along with the speed of a fighter jet, and lower operational and support costs.

“We’re very pleased with the government of Israel’s decision to move forward with the U.S. government’s Letter of Offer and Acceptance for the F-35,” said Tom Burbage, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and general manager of F-35 Program Integration. “This is another step in the longstanding relationship between Lockheed Martin and the nation of Israel. The Lightning II will strengthen Israel’s national security posture both militarily and industrially.”
