The visit was part of the service’s preparations for the initial batch of 20 F-35A joint strike fighters which are to receive Israeli-made electronic warfare systems.
Israel’s experts are now manufacturing the fifth-generation stealth fighter to accept the equipment which will be installed after the country’s F-35’s are supplied from 2017.
