Israel Bolsters KC-707 Refueling Fleet

With the threat of a conflict with Iran looming, the Israeli air force has augmented its fleet of KC-707 (“Re’em”) aerial refueling aircraft with an eighth tanker, bolstering the strike capacity the country would have if it tries to undertake a raid on Teheran’s nuclear facilities.

The $23-million contract to reconfigure the aircraft was awarded to Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) in late 2008, as part of a strategic effort to rapidly enhance the country’s long-range strike capabilities.

“Many of the air force’s current missions require extended range and that means more fuel,” Lt. Col. Amir, commander of the IAF’s 120 “International” squadron told Aviation Week Space Technology (for security reasons, Israel does not release last names of operational personnel). Refusing to discuss specific strike scenarios, he added: “I can gladly say that as an organization we have come to a point where we are ready to perform any mission in any range within a very short notice.”

Iran’s nuclear facilities and the conflict such a strike would likely unleash have become the IAF’s primary mission in recent years. As such, IAF fighter squadrons are constantly training in aerial refueling scenarios.

For the last two decades, Israel has been developing its strategic arm by procuring fighter aircraft with long-range strike capabilities, such as the F‑15I and F-16I. Last year, it also qualified its two squadrons of F-15A/B/C/D air-superiority aircraft to carry out ground-attack missions. However, notes Amir, “aerial refueling will allow any fighter, regardless of its range, to carry more munitions instead of fuel.”




An attack is coming. All is in place.

Aircraft range is only part of the picture. Do they have the munitions?

I wonder if Israel will try to take out the regime first and worry about nuke facilities later?

Are you asking yourself that question?

Use some common sense. Many of the identified targets are heavily fortified and deeply buried. They require heavy earth-penetrating munitions. May of those munitions can only be delivered with heavy bombers.

Does Israel have heavy bombers? Does it have the bunker-busters of sufficient size?

Where will they fly?

Map of the Middle East
[link to www.globalresearch.ca]

There is no possible flight path for the Israeli Air Force that does not violate Arab air space.

Any violation of Arab air space, including an overflight of Iraq, will lead to retaliatory attacks on Israel by the Arab nations, or their proxies. If the IDF overflies Iraq, the American troops still in Iraq will be their targets.

An IDF refueling tanker in Arab air space will be a sitting duck, would constitute an act of war against the country it flies over, and would be a justified target for antiaircraft missiles.

There is no question Israel has enough serious fire power to smash Iran to pieces but Iran also has weapon technology that can destroy israel the result = mutual destruction but not a lot of idiot israelis know that.................
