"In any case, following the arrival of the F-15I, the Israelis began an improvement effort for their older F-15s under the "Baz Meshupar (Improved Eagle)" program. This featured elements of the F-15I, such as the modernized cockpit, GPS-INS navigation system, and DASH helmet. The first rebuilt Baz Meshopar was rolled out in November 1998, with the program completed in 2005."

Why?

Because of the Zionist lobby.

USAF cries silently in the corner. After seeing Merkava line stats, nothing surprises me anymore.

Another thing.

Look at how fast the Nimrod missile is. It literally goes as fast as the Vikhr missile, which has an IRL speed of Mach 1.8, even though the Nimrod has an IRL speed of Mach 0.8

IIRC Nimrod goes at ~2000 km/h == Mach 1.6 ?

Oh shoot. He is actually right. That was a mistake on the wiki article.

The Vikhr is still faster though.

Wiki did the km/h to Mach calculation wrong :lol:

AFAIK Wargame only differs speed by guiding type (SALH, MCLOS, SACLOS), so they should be at the same ingame speed in the end...i think. (Even when Vikhr should be faster as Nimrod)
FLX mentioned something about the missile speed in the stream.

Because Israel in game looks like clearly post-2000 army. In the meantime US ans USSR can't even use conventional items they have in late 80's/early 90's, with exception for few unicorns.

Not exactly, there are some exceptions. Metys is extremely slow, while being SACLOS. Kokon is pretty fast for SACLOS missile. ADATS fly fast as fuck, much faster that any SALH missile.
