The Israeli Defense Force is considered to be one of the highest trained armies in the world and the IAF branch is legendary in its readiness and combat effectiveness.
133 Sq has arrived at Nellis for some advanced combat training and the outfitting of the AIM54 on the F-15C. A deadly long range missile that had its day in the 1990's, the IAF is looking for any edge it can find to keep up with the constant dangers of life in the Mideast.
"Welcome 133 Squadron, to Nellis Air Base. We are sure you are ready to start your training so lets get right to it. Your mission today will be a short escort run, followed by a 3 part air interdiction exercise.
UZI 1-1, contact tower for start-up and taxi instructions. Have a great run gentlemen. Mazel tov!"
