Hmm, I've got a few bits on the Lavi from when IAI was looking at close collaboration with a US company. This data includes the original F404-powered Lavi as well as two hybrid designs combining the best of the Lavi design with significant elements of one of the US airframer's designs as a means of reducing overall costs.

Air Fan 102 (1987) has a Lavi article (Entre Lavi et La Mort) if anyone has this magazine.

Not here. It's not my scan and that's all I have.

For details reference, if not yet done check Sergei Batoussov's virtual heyl ha avir museum: http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Cavern/6130/iafm_lavi.htm

Now, frankly, it escapes me why one would need details on the Lavi to research the J-10. There's already more than enough of those who absolutely need to stir mud...

Thanks, but its not for any comparison between the Lavi and the J-10 ... I'm searching for details for a friend of mine building a 1/32-scale Model of the Lavi !

In french Lavi looks like "La vie" (Life ) hence many, many BAD jokes on article titles (Lavi va, lavi s'en va... entre lavi et la mort... ::) ::) ::) ::) )

Hi ... yet another update of my friend's work - and maybe interesting to You "overscan" - Bekim finally received official help from IAI. :eek:

After lengthy discussions, negotiations and same additional help from around he got "green" light from IAI to finish his model by providing him some official line-drawings and detail photos from the remaining TD.

Cheers, Deino

Interesting!!
Thanks for sharing

As I'm a big fan of the 'custom' designed and built A-10 Thunderbolt II in its designed role and purpose, I've never been a fan of the USAF's loathing for this specialized aircraft. Let alone that of the idea of an adaption of an F-16 replace it! Saying this I think, due to the fact that the Israeli's designed the Lavi as a replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk and Kfir predominantly in the ground attack/battlefield interdiction role, along with Israel's appreciation of combat experience and losses in such roles, I think the Lavi would have been a better design for such a role, given the choice between F-16 (aka A-16) and Lavi

Pioneer
