The real star of Israel’s Blue Flag air exercise

Israel conducted its fifth Blue Flag air exercise at the Uvda Air Base in the southern Negev from October 17th until October 28th.  A number of countries participated in flying 4th and 5th generation aircraft.

The primary focus was on cooperative operations that involve the newer aircraft and tactics for dealing with enemy air defenses.  But Israel also showed off something entirely new: the training version of its new Scorpius electronic warfare system which may have been the star of the show.

Scorpius is Israel’s new electronic warfare system.  It provides a unique capability against air threats including manned and unmanned aircraft, missiles (including air defense missiles), drones and cruise missiles.
