I don't think so ... the Lavi was much later and begun to evolve from a project called "Arye". As far as I remember correct, there have been several different configurations (two of them look similar to a mini-Mirage 4000 or a delta-canard-Hornet) under test and one of them was finally choosen for further development ... the result was the Lavi !

This one looks older. ???

Hi folks,
in the German magazine 'INTERAVIA', May 1970, I found this picture showing a wind tunnel model of a strike fighter with a delta wing and foreplanes. It was designed by the Israelian constructing engineer Joseph Buchnik. The picture caption mentions also that this concept looks similar to the Dassault Milan.
Does anyone have some more information or pictures?


Thanks in advance!
