F-4E Kurnass - IDF 'Aggressor' Flight

Recommended Posts

McDonnell Douglas F-4E 'Kurnass' - 'Aggressor Flight', No.69 Squadron, 'The Hammers', Heyl Ha'Avir, 1984

 

The transfer of 35 ex-USAF F-4E's to the Egyptian Air Force under the September 1977 'Peace Pharaoh' agreement saw the Heyl Ha'Avir introduce a dedicated Kurnass Aggressor Flight to give frontline F-15 and F-16 pilots DACM training and an opportunity to develop tactics against potentially hostile F-4's. Entering service in 1981 (as part of an enlarged No.69 squadron) the Kurnass aggressors flew in a variety of schemes and took part in attacks against Syrian anti-aircraft missile batteries in 'Operation Peace for Galilee' in 1982 destroying several SAM sites whilst suffering no losses to enemy action.
