JNS.org – The deal for the Israel Defense Forces to acquire the American V-22 Osprey aircraft was finalized during Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s meeting with his American counterpart Chuck Hagel on Friday at a defense ministers’ conference in Halifax, Canada.
Israel is the first country to receive the V-22 Osprey from the U.S. The aircraft takes off and lands like a helicopter, but can convert to fly like an airplane at high speeds and altitudes once it is airborne.
