IAI Kfir C.2Z - South African Air Force, 1985


Shortly after 1982 Lebanon War, Israeli Air Force decided to modernize its Kfir fleet. 
A modernization program starting in 1983 would bring the majority of Kfir C.2 to C.7 standard. 
20 Kfir C.2 aircrafts were not included in this program and soon became available for export. 
In 1984 South African Air Force stated interest for these airframes and some months later 
delieveries begun. These aircrafts were designated Kfir C.2Z and were delievered along 
with Shafrir-2 missiles.
