IAF trains for battle against Egyptian, Syrian and Saudi Air Forces

IAF trains for battle against Egyptian, Syrian and Saudi Air Forces

Aaron Lerner Date: 20
March 2005

While Israeli military analysts typically leave Saudi weapons systems out of
Arab-Israeli balance of power estimates, Israel Television Channel 2 news
revealed this evening that the Israel Air Force (IAF) is forming a "Red
Squadron" that will mimic the Egyptian, Syrian and Saudi air force in
training exercises for the IAF forces involving mock battles.

The Red Squadron pilots are fluent in Arabic and not only fly per the
doctrines of the Egyptian, Syrian and Saudi air forces but also speak in
Arabic over the radio as they engage in jamming communications.

Under the plan, twice a year Israel's skies will be divided into "red" and
"blue" zones for the mock battles.
