Israeli Air Force releases airstrike figures

by Jeremy Binnie

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) has used 4,239 weapons in the last three years during its ‘battle between the wars’ to suppress Iranian and Hizbullah activity, mainly in Syria, according to several Hebrew-language reports published on 13 August.

Citing documentation released by the IAF, the reports said the weapons were used against 955 targets, far more than have previously been reported, and that 70% of Israeli pilots have been involved in the campaign, with the new F-35I Adir jets carrying out dozens of missions.

Israel does not typically claim responsibility for airstrikes against targets in foreign countries, which primarily target Iranian weapons shipments to Hizbullah or attempts by the Lebanese group to build up its ability to attack Israel from Syrian territory. The strikes have also targeted Syrian air defences that threaten Israeli aircraft during the operations.

Damascus sporadically claims its air defences have shot down Israeli missiles and occasionally aircraft. The IAF reportedly conceded that some of its missiles have been intercepted by Syrian air defences but noted that none of its aircraft have been hit since an F-16I was lost to an S-200 (SA-5) surface-to-air missile (SAM) in February 2018.

Most of the reports said that the Syrian military had launched 873 SAMs at Israeli aircraft in the last three years, while some put the figure at 844. Most of the SAMs were launched by SA-17 (Buk-M2) and SA-22 (Pantsir-S1) systems. A few reports claimed that the IAF has destroyed a third of Syria’s air defence systems this year and Walla News noted that Syrians are killed in almost every such strike.

DSEI 2021: Elbit details ARCAS future soldier system

Elbit Systems UK unveiled its Assault Rifle Combat Application System (ARCAS) at the DSEI exhibition, which was held in London from 14-17 September.

ARCAS is designed to provide dismounted soldiers with relevant information from a force's battle management system, an Elbit spokesperson told Janes . It builds on experience gained through similar systems that have been used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the spiral development of the Elbit Dominator soldier system presented in 2007, the spokesperson added.

The system is mounted under the rifle's barrel using standard accessory rails. It acts as a handgrip and includes the various buttons of the man-machine interface and an electro-optical sensor. Elbit currently offers either an uncooled 640 × 480 17 µ far infrared (FIR) or 640 × 480 12 µ long-wave infrared (LWIR) thermal imager. This provide a 27° field of view and is capable of detecting a human target at 580 m, recognising one at 250 m, and identifying a human target at 120 m, according to Elbit.

Israeli company Elbit Systems announced on 13 September that it has secured contracts worth a combined USD56 million to provide anti-submarine-warfare (ASW) capabilities to the navy of an undisclosed country in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Haifa-based company said that under the contracts, which are to be performed over a 12-month period, it will provide an undisclosed number of Seagull unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) configured to perform ASW missions as well as Towed Reelable Active Passive Sonar (TRAPS) systems.

The TRAPS systems, which are low-frequency variable-depth sonars intended for detection, tracking, and classification of submarines, midget submarines, surface vessels, and torpedoes, will be installed on the customer's corvettes, noted the company.

The Seagull USVs will integrate Helicopter/Ship Long-Range Active Sonars (HELRASs) and will be equipped with Elbit's autonomous command-and-control (C2) suite, combat management system, and satellite communication capabilities, it added.

It builds on experience gained through similar systems that have been used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the spiral development of the Elbit Dominator soldier system presented in 2007, the spokesperson added.

The system is mounted under the rifle's barrel using standard accessory rails. It acts as a handgrip and includes the various buttons of the man-machine interface and an electro-optical sensor. Elbit currently offers either an uncooled 640 × 480 17 µ far infrared (FIR) or 640 × 480 12 µ long-wave infrared (LWIR) thermal imager. This provide a 27° field of view and is capable of detecting a human target at 580 m, recognising one at 250 m, and identifying a human target at 120 m, according to Elbit.

Israeli company Elbit Systems announced on 13 September that it has secured contracts worth a combined USD56 million to provide anti-submarine-warfare (ASW) capabilities to the navy of an undisclosed country in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Haifa-based company said that under the contracts, which are to be performed over a 12-month period, it will provide an undisclosed number of Seagull unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) configured to perform ASW missions as well as Towed Reelable Active Passive Sonar (TRAPS) systems.

The TRAPS systems, which are low-frequency variable-depth sonars intended for detection, tracking, and classification of submarines, midget submarines, surface vessels, and torpedoes, will be installed on the customer's corvettes, noted the company.

The Seagull USVs will integrate Helicopter/Ship Long-Range Active Sonars (HELRASs) and will be equipped with Elbit's autonomous command-and-control (C2) suite, combat management system, and satellite communication capabilities, it added.

Israeli Air Force releases airstrike figures

by Jeremy Binnie

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) has used 4,239 weapons in the last three years during its ‘battle between the wars’ to suppress Iranian and Hizbullah activity, mainly in Syria, according to several Hebrew-language reports published on 13 August.

Citing documentation released by the IAF, the reports said the weapons were used against 955 targets, far more than have previously been reported, and that 70% of Israeli pilots have been involved in the campaign, with the new F-35I Adir jets carrying out dozens of missions.

Israel does not typically claim responsibility for airstrikes against targets in foreign countries, which primarily target Iranian weapons shipments to Hizbullah or attempts by the Lebanese group to build up its ability to attack Israel from Syrian territory. The strikes have also targeted Syrian air defences that threaten Israeli aircraft during the operations.

Elbit Systems UK unveiled its Assault Rifle Combat Application System (ARCAS) at the DSEI exhibition, which was held in London from 14-17 September.

ARCAS is designed to provide dismounted soldiers with relevant information from a force's battle management system, an Elbit spokesperson told Janes . It builds on experience gained through similar systems that have been used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the spiral development of the Elbit Dominator soldier system presented in 2007, the spokesperson added.

The system is mounted under the rifle's barrel using standard accessory rails. It acts as a handgrip and includes the various buttons of the man-machine interface and an electro-optical sensor.
