Israel has been a disputed nation right from the very first moment of its creation. It faced a brutal attack from Arabian countries right on the very next day of its existence, and since that day Israel has been indulged in building its strength with each passing day. It exists in an extremely hostile neighborhood where every neighboring nation wants to destroy it. And that was the reason why Israel had to fight multiple full scale wars with its neighbors and it is indulged in a daily skirmishes with its neighbors for many decades.
Built on a foundation of pre-independence militias, supplied with cast-off World War II weapons, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have enjoyed remarkable success in the field. In the 1960s and 1970s, both because of its unique needs and because of international boycotts, Israel began developing its own military technologies, as well as augmenting the best foreign tech.
Today, Israel boasts one of the most technologically advanced military stockpiles in the world, and one of the world’s most effective workforces ever.
Here are the few reasons why no Nation dares to go to War with Israel ever.
The Israeli Soldier
Since 1948 Israel has initiated a programme to convert its human capital to the armed forces. The IDF has developed systems of recruitment, training, and retention that allow it to field some of the most competent, capable soldiers in the world. None of the technologies work unless they have smart, dedicated, well-trained operators to make them function at their fullest potential. Israel has a mandatory Defense Service for its Citizens since 1948, and we believe this policy has given a tremendous results.
The Merkava tank joined the IDF in 1979 and its domestic design and construction avoided problems of unsteady foreign supply, while also allowing the Israelis to focus on designs optimized for their environment, rather than for Central Europe. Around 1,600 Merkavas of various types have entered service, with several hundred more still on the way.
It is famous for its maneuverability, precision and speed. In both of the recent Gaza wars, the IDF has used Merkavas to penetrate Palestinian positions while active defense systems keep crews safe. Israel has also developed modifications that enhance the Merkavas’ capabilities in urban and low-intensity combat.
F-15I Thunder Fighter Jet
The Israeli Air Force has flown variants of the F-15 since the 1970s, and has become the world’s most versatile and effective user of the Eagle. Israelis have perfected the F-15 both for air supremacy and for strike purposes. Flown by elite pilots, the F-15Is of the IAF remain the most lethal squadron of aircraft in the Middle East.
Jericho III Nuclear Missile System
The Jericho I ballistic missile entered service in the early 1970s, to eventually be replaced by the Jericho II and Jericho III.The Jericho III is the most advanced ballistic missile in the region, presumably capable of striking targets not only in the Middle East, but also across Europe, Asia, and potentially North America.
The Jericho III ensures that any nuclear attack against Israel would be met with devastating retaliation, especially as it is unlikely that Israel could be disarmed by a first strike. Of course, given that no potential Israeli foe has nuclear weapons, these missiles give Jerusalem presumptive nuclear superiority across the region.
Dolphin Class Submarine
The role of the Dolphin class in Israel’s nuclear deterrent has almost certainly been wildly overstated. The ability of a diesel electric submarine to carry out deterrent patrols is starkly limited, no matter what ordnance they carry. However, the Dolphin remains an effective platform for all sorts of other missions required by the IDF.
Capable of maritime reconnaissance, of sinking or otherwise interdicting enemy ships, and also of delivering Special Forces to unfriendly coastlines, the Dolphins represent a major Israeli security investment, and one of the most potentially lethal undersea forces in the region.
