Israel Upgrading Military Helicopters and Buying More F35s and F15s

Israel’s military will be buying about $6 billion of new military gear over the next six years (2021-2026). They will be updating the transport helicopters. The air force plans to purchase 18-20 transport helicopters at a cost between $1 billion and $1.5 billion and is trying to decide between two models. They could get the Sikorsky CH-53K, which has 2.5 times the capacity of the current helicopter.

If there is enough budget, they will get a new squadron of F-35 Stealth (Adir) bombers and another squadron of F-15s.
