Summary

F-35A with Israeli modifications. A senior Israel air force official stated “the aircraft will be designated F-35I, as there will be unique Israeli features installed in them”. The United States will not allow for the integration of Israel’s own electronic warfare systems into the aircraft’s built-in electronic suite. However, a plug-and-play feature added to the main computer will allow for use of Israeli electronics in an add-on fashion. Israel will be able to fit its own external jamming pod and plans to install its own air-to-air missiles and guided bombs in the F-35’s internal weapon bays.
