Near-total air superiority was one of the key factors of the IDF's stunning success in the Six Day War in 1967. The IDF opened the war with "Operation Moked", a surprise air assault by the Israeli Air Force that caught the Egyptian air force on the ground and pretty much toasted it. I think they took out something like 400 Arab aircraft. After that, the IDF armoured brigades could roll out into the Sinai with full-on air cover.

My only gripe? I wish it was 1/100 scale, like the other vehicles - not that it matters at all in terms of the gaming, just a pedant tic in my own mind. The model would probably be impractical at 1/100 for gaming...
So my IDF now have tanks, some infantry and air support. Need to focus on the Egyptians now. Stay tuned for more "Fate Of A Nation" stuff...
