During the Six Day War many new and old war machines were tested and some fared better than others. One such machine was the Shahak (Mirage III) fighter jet, which proved it’s worth during Operation Moked, the Israeli preemptive strike of the Arab airfields.
It would also go on to perform well during the rest of the “war” downing another 48 Arab aircraft. The Mirage III was designed to be the first European Aircraft to be able to hit MACH 2 in horizontal flight. It was also used in ground support after the Arab air forces were effectively neutralized.
This really nice looking miniature comes with a tall flight stand and the necessary decals to give it the proper markings. If you thought about looking into combat in the later half of the 20th century you might just want to consider Fate of A Nation from Battlefront. You still get big tank battles and can add in some nice touches like allied armour from WWII going against each other (updated of course) in this theater of operations, along with jet aircraft.
Do you have what it takes to be a fighter ace?
