Soon the Israel Air Force (IAF) will be equipped with F-35 jets that have their own cyber defenses. The IAF Chief of Staff says the addition of these jets will improve Israel’s defenses, and he is excited about their arrival.

Kelman [the air force’s Chief of Staff] praised the jet across the board, saying it would significantly upgrade Israel's ability to defend itself, but added that he had been greatly disturbed by the issue of cyber defense for the stealth aircraft.

After negotiations with the US and the plane's manufacturer, Lockheed Martin, an agreement was reached enabling the Israel Air Force (IAF) to create Israeli cyber defense solutions.

Fifty percent of pilot training will be carried out on the F-35 simulator, Kelman said, representing an approximate five-fold increase in the percentage of simulator training that occurs in older, fourth-generation jets like the F-16.
