Israel's famed "Flying Tiger" squadron.
The U.S. started exporting A-4 Skyhawks to the Israeli Air Force in the late 1960s. The I.A.F.'s 102nd Squadron - the "Flying Tigers" - formed in 1967, just as the first Skyhawks entered service. During the Yom Kippur War, TA-4 trainers served as reinforcements for the 102nd. In 2008, combat Skyhawks were replaced by the F-16®. Some Skyhawks are still used to train rookies. This limited edition kit features new resin engine nozzle and antenna parts.
