F35Israel plans to buy an additional 17 Lockheed Martin-built F-35 aircraft for an undisclosed sum under a third order that brings the country“™s procurement commitment with the U.S. government to 50 fighter jets, Defense News reported Sunday.

Barbara Opall-Rome writes Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet approved on Sunday the F-35 acquisition package, which industry and defense sources say could be worth more than $2.5 billion.

The approval of the third procurement package comes two weeks after Lockheed selected Elbit Systems to provide support services for the F-35 training center of Israel“™s air force.

According to the report, the training center at Nevatim Air Base will support aircraft deployment efforts as Israel expects to receive the first of 33 F-35A jets in December.
