Israeli A-4 Skyhawk Units in Combat
The light and agile A-4 Skyhawk was the first modern American jet to be offered to the Israeli Air Force, marking the point where the US took over from France as Israel s chief military supplier. Deliveries began too late for the A-4 to fight in the Six-Day War, but it soon formed the backbone of the IAF s ground-attack force. From 1969 to 1970 it flew endless sorties against Egyptian forces in the War of Attrition. Then, during the Yom Kippur War, five squadrons of A-4s saw combat and 50 planes were lost as they battled against the Arab armored onslaught.
Using previously unpublished first-hand accounts and rare photography from the IAF archives and pilots private collections, Shlomo Aloni tells the definitive history of the IAF s A-4 squadrons, including the story of Ezra BABAN Dotan who became an ace with an unique double-kill of MiG17s.
