Several F-16 jet engines stolen in Israel
The engine of an F-16 fighter jet weighs around 3,700 pounds. Moving one is no small task, so to find out several have been stolen from an Israel Defense Force base is sure to have a few people scratching their heads, especially as no one seems to know what happened to them.

Although an inside job is suspected, the Israeli government doesn’t seem too fussed about the theft. The engines are old and no longer in use, and they believe they were stolen to be sold for their value as scrap metal.

That may be the case, but US defense industry research groups and think tanks have been quick to point out the theft may actually be quite serious. Designing and manufacturing a jet engine remains a very complex process, and the F-16 engines are thought to be more advanced than anything either China or Iran currently has.



The worry is that even if the engines were stolen for their scrap value, the group who stole them may get a better offer from a government interested in taking the engines apart and learning how to make them. That could knock years off research and development of new fighter jets for certain countries keen to increase their military power as quickly as possible.

Re: Several F-16 jet engines stolen in Israel
I'm SHOCKED, shocked that someone would steal american aircraft in israel.

They should institute searches of lockers and lunchboxed until they are found, and check all the closets and bathrooms too.

I cant BELIEVE that anyone would steal from their superextrabest friends the americans who so generously send them 40 million borrowed dollars each and every day, just to help out superwonderful group of people who dont extradite a large number of chosen fugitives back to the us

Re: Several F-16 jet engines stolen in Israel
Lmao I used to do retail security and I think that something as large as an F-16 fighter was passing me I would be asking Question you can't exactly miss it, and I thought Israel had their security on top notch considering the state of affairs they are in I mean come on a pack of Ham compared to a F-16

and all at a time of Egypt getting new fighters Does Iran posses any F-16's ?
