Feb 2017

President Trump got LM to reduce
price for
each  F-35A   from almost
$150 million to $95 million   Except
in the case of Israel which gets their 
 F-35I's for only  $85 million because 
they buy their's Stripped.  They put
their own very sophisticated cockpit
electronics in, that's not only unique
but,  superior in capability, quality
and world class.   Take for instance
their Elbit 360
helmet that can see
through the airplane frame & costs
over $400,000 each.  NOW all F-35
countries must use this   one model
and  one-of-a-kind custom Helmet

Also   there is a dedicated on board
self protection  &  defensive system
that's locally developed and unique
stealth design. C4I communication
gear along wth new state-of-the-art
carbon fiber wing sets that will go
into ALL F-35's in the world

IDF Adir IS Unique
Because  of  all  countries
only Israel  can build her
own stae-of-the-art  'C4I'
avionics for the IAF Adir

Besides Israel building 
many  airframe  parts,
 whole suite of weapons,
conformal   fuel tanks, 
say nothing of the half
million $ helmet for all
F-35 JSF countries

In fact,  Israel has been
authorized to construct
a complete depot based
airframe   maintenance
center co-located at the
IAF Adir home base at
Nevatim AFB.
