The Israeli Defense Ministry has announced that it will try to sell 40 of its F-16A/B jets which were retired on Monday.

Haaretz newspaper reported that the ministry’s Defense Aid Branch has advertised that 40 such planes are up for sale, noting that in the IAF they served in a variety of missions and are “especially recommended for attack forces.”

The planes were originally designated for the air force in Iran, but the United States offered them to Israel after the 1979 Islamic Revolution in that country.

Israel is also selling another seven Hercules C-130 planes, seven Hawk fighter-interceptor systems, 40 Skyhawk Eagles and eight Cobra helicopters.
