The United States denied Israel to force the supply of aircraft needed to strike Iran


In connection with the preparation of an attack on Iran, Israel asked the United States to accelerate the delivery of the previously ordered new Boeing KC-46 tanker aircraft. They are extremely important for the fulfillment of this mission, according to the Israeli portal Ynet.


Earlier, Tel Aviv agreed with Washington on the purchase of 4 KC-46 units, the flight range of which is more than 11 thousand km. They should enter the Israeli Air Force no earlier than 4 years later and replace 50-year-old Boeing KC-707 tanker aircraft.

The KC-46 can refuel dozens of fighters with its state-of-the-art Technology, in whose development alone billions of dollars were invested

- specifies the media.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz, who recently visited the United States tried to convince Americans deliver 2 of the aforementioned KC-46s ahead of schedule. However, the Americans refused to do so.

The IDF hopes that next year they will still be able to convince the Americans

- says the publication.

The question of the earliest possible receipt of a pair of KC-46 should have been resolved two years ago. But due to the political crisis in Israel, the negotiation process was delayed.

The distance between Israel and Iran is very great. Fighter bombers will have to cover more than 1 km in each direction, so obtaining tanker aircraft is critical to the success of a mission if a decision is made to carry it out.

Meanwhile, the IDF is stepping up preparations for the attack. In parallel with the acquisition of equipment and interceptor missiles for the Iron Dome, the Air Force is preparing a detailed and updated aviation training plan. At the same time, Washington, despite the pressure from Tel Aviv, still considers the attack on Tehran the very last measure.

    The distance Eilat Haifa along the highway is 429 km, and in a straight line - 363 km. This is the north and south of Israel! Where are you going to train to fly?

      Due to the tiny size of the territory of Israel, the crews of Khed Hawir train over the sea. They use the air bases of NATO, friendly Arab states. The hands of Hel Hawir are long, so they need tankers. Operation "Wooden leg."

        the Iranians have long arms, the range of their missiles is 2000 km and the accuracy is phenomenal, they have already exponentially destroyed the hangars of amers in Iraq hundreds of kilometers away, having previously warned the amers about the attack))

          The phenomenality is confirmed only with regular massive use.

          already demonstratively destroyed the hangars of amers in Iraq hundreds of kilometers away, having previously warned the amers about the attack))

          That is why they destroyed it because they warned it, discussed it beforehand ... Contractual defeat
          The United States achieved more. They destroyed the most cunning General Suleymaniev. It's not a pity to give up for such a head and 20 bases. Moreover, not a single JI was killed. The cunning Persian was able to involve and drag the Russians into a long adventure.

        Regardless of whether the new tankers are delivered to the Israelis ahead of schedule, whether the Biden administration will support the Israeli attack and what Putin thinks about this, there will be no Iranian nuclear weapons - this is 100%! bully

          Not everything in relations between the United States and Israel is subject to publicity, especially in the supply of equipment and weapons.

            It is expensive, dangerous and counterproductive for Americans to keep Jewish Nazis indefinitely.

          There will be no attack. Jewish fraudsters have been weaving this tale that "we will not let Iran make a bomb" for thirty years. A strike on Iran will entail an answer unacceptable for the Zionists

          I can only recall Lenin's definition of "useful uduots".
          In all future zones, it is necessary to deprive the subordinate states of the zone of nuclear weapons. This is a rather complicated problem, and it is always pleasant when someone rushes into the embrasure on their own initiative. And, most importantly, it's free.
          It is more difficult to deal with the larger states. With small ones, this will happen automatically.

    An acquaintance of mine left Israel and has been living in Russia for 8 years - I'm tired of the eternal hysteria about Iran. He served in the army of this cheerful country, showed me photos of engineering equipment - just super! Kata with machine guns on the roof and other bulldozers ... Impressed. But why doesn't the captain want to go back?

        I have a similar example before my eyes. And, that is, in Canada is in no hurry.

    soon the Iranians will receive a su35 with an R-37 rocket and will be able to bring down refuelers at a distance of 300 km)) and if they buy Brahmos from the Indians, which the Indians want to adapt to destroy very distant air targets, Jewish refuelers can shoot down over Israel, launching at a distance of 800 km))

      soon Iranians will receive su35 with R-37 missile

      Soon soon... laughing

      The productivity of the plant is not so hot. The Russian Air Force would have manned at least one third. The Iranian Air Force requires about 300 machines. The Persians do not have such funds.

    That is. Is Israel absolutely NOT hiding going to attack Iran? And no creepy screams for you about achression? And when the state at the highest level says that it is NOT going to attack anyone, then it turns out that there is an agression? What can I say when strange habits of many of the ruling circles are revealed ... Probably their addictions turn everything upside down ...

    It begins to dawn on the Americans that the regime of Jewish Nazis cannot be maintained indefinitely, for this is leading the world to catastrophe.

    Americans support fascists from Israel less and less. A parasite state without handouts is doomed
