Israel Tests “Oron” Surveillance Aircraft

The Israeli Defence Ministry has announced the commencement of test flights for the new “Oron” surveillance aircraft, equipped with sensor devices and C4I systems, designed for tracking multiple targets.

The Commander of the Air Force described it as “the first of its kind specialized in target collection, classification, and weapon guidance in all theatres of action.”

Once operational, the aircraft will serve with Squadron 122, known as Nahshon in Israel. This squadron was established in 1971 and has changed its roles over the years from transport planes and those used in special operations to the use of the latest ISR aircraft. Their arsenal already includes Gulfstream G-500 Shavit and G-550 Eitam aircraft.
