Israel has scrapped a plan to purchase the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey for the country’s air force amid budgetary troubles and a renewed focus on buying fighter jets and aerial refuelers, according to senior Israeli defense officials.

Given recent budget turbulence and the impending installation of a new government, the Israeli ministry of defense decided that the V-22 purchase will be frozen “until more resources are available,” according to senior officials.
