Okay you want the deal... here it is from your relative military expert
Israel's army is us trained and supplied BUT IS STILL NOT MORE MODERN THAN THE US ARMY
i'm not going into details about this...like SC said any other idea is rubbish
they do have the best airforce equal or better than the us
the reason why is because they fly COMBAT missions observing hostiles EVERYDAY
they USE THE Same fighters the US does , don't even waste yoru time trying to compare their modifications betwn ours we will be here for the next 8 yrs
TAC I JUST READ YOUR POST TIME FOR JJ TO LAY THE SMACKDOWN :-)
The Training the US gives it's common inf grunt is the best in the world, Israeli troops are only good in urban fighting, trust me throw down a us sqaud versus an israeli squad in the desert woodlands, islands or hell even in an URBAN environment the US squad will be victorious, without support, i cannot emphasize this enough.
THe us dropped dumb bombs in iraq AS WELL AS LASER GUIDED BOMBS because the Airforce wanted to clear out some of it's 60's and 70's inventory. Some of the bombs they knew would be unnecessary in future so Schwarzkopf capitalized on this chance to clear it out. There are some outstanding books on Desert Storm, my favorite being "the General's"
also watch the documentaries on tv
and also remember who teaches israel how to fly and and fight on the ground and gives them the weapons to do it... WE DO
The only mistake the Us made and the Isareli's beat out the US on was the BRADELY IFV, AN ENTIRE NEW TOPIC entirely
