‘Israel’s new stealth fighters unable to damage Iranian nuclear sites’

December 13, 2016 - 9:44

TEHRAN – F-35 stealth fighters which Israel received from the U.S. on Monday have limited range, speed, and can do little against Iran’s underground nuclear facilities, the Middle East Eye reported.

“It’s not a perfect aircraft for operations against Iran by any means, but it’s certainly better suited to penetrating modern air defenses than anything else the Israeli air force operates at the moment,” according to Justin Bronk, a researcher at the Royal United Services Institute, a UK-based military think-tank.
