Israel Ministry of Defense sent four additional F-16s (Falcon) to the US and completed the delivery of a total of 12 fighter jets to be used for U.S. Air Force training.

A few months ago, in a move led by the IMoD’s International Defense Cooperation Directorate (SIBAT), IMoD signed an agreement to sell 29 F-16 fighter jets to Top Aces, the company that will provide adversary training services (“red air”) for US Air Force training.

To date, 12 fighter jets have been sent to the US in three shipments. The deal also includes engines and spare parts, according to IMoD’s announcement.
