The new “Tzofit” plane was received by the IAF in a military ceremony at the Sde Dov air base, led by the Commander in Chief of the IAF, Maj. Gen. Dan Halutz.

The “Tzofit”, flown in from the USA, is a new American plane that will be equipped with systems developed by Israel, which will improve its intelligence gathering and relay capabilities.

In the future, the IAF will receive four additional planes as part of the ecpansion of the “Tzofit” squadron and the strengthening of the IAF’s intelligence gathering ability.
