    The leading Israeli manufacturer of tankers, aircraft refuelers, fire fighting trucks, armored vehicles and special purpose trailers, Hatehof Ltd., reportedly provides Pakistan's Air Force with military equipment under a clandestine contract.:shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked::shocked:


    Nearly a month ago, 11 aircraft refueling trucks departed Hatehof's plant in the Tzippori industrial zone in Galilee region, situated 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) northwest of Nazareth, for the Port of Ashdod, located about 40 kilometers (24 miles) south of Tel Aviv, in the dead of the night.

    The trucks were later boarded on a cargo ship in the Ashdod Port and dispatched to Turkey from where they were transported to Pakistan, according to a recent report aired on Israel's Channel 2 television network.

    The report comes as the Israeli firm has sent several convoys of aircraft refueling trucks to Pakistan in order to equip the Muslim states' Air Force.

    Under an agreement reached between Hatehof Ltd. and BMC -- one of the largest commercial vehicle manufacturers in Turkey, truck chassis are sent to Israel to be converted into aircraft refueling trucks for Pakistan's Air Force.

    A refuelling tanker is not very lethal.

    It would be if aircraft were attached to them!

    Turkey must be investing for these aircraft refueling trucks!!!

    Buying 11 Refueling tankers doest even cost half-million. Its actually really embarrassing to rely over other country for these kind of equipment.


    Heck,..........You can develop your own refuelling trucks with a small private auto-manufacturing plant rather relying on someone else. Almost all developing countries could develop their won refueling trucks if they want to.


    They can get some these kind of trucks from China for free!!!

    Its sad that Pakis cannot even manufacture their own refuelling vehicles :lol:

    These are totally non-lethal, so any sale to Pakistan doesn't matter to India.

    I don't really think refueling trucks are some uberweapons that Israel sells to Pakistan. It just happens that these trucks maybe a sub-contract since Israel also operates F-16s like Pakistanis.

    Really, is refueling trucks worth a thread?

    Must be a RAW/CIA/Mossad conspiracy!

    Jokes apart, I would not bother much about non-lethal military hardware.

    Of course, it would have been better if this did not happen.

    Knowing how Mossad works, I would not bet on the tankers not being rigged with bugs, explosives etc. They would be able to gather quite a bit of data by just monitoring how much fuel is being consumed by the airforce, what the supply lines are etc. If and when they need to conduct a precision strike such data can be very helpful. I wonder if the Pukes even know that the trucks come from Israel, maybe they think Turkey makes them :lol:

    Its not really Israel's fault that a lot of Indians hold unfair preconceived notions about that country.

    Although, this sale only has to do with Refueling trucks, still, an honest assessment is required.

    Yes, Indo-Israeli defence relations are thriving and that is to the benefit of both. Israel gets business, India gets high end products. This does not mean Israel will not do business with any of India's rivals; for India would than actually be an expensive business partner, if that was the case. If the Israelis can get positive assurances from the Pakistanis, they will without a blink sell them high end weapons, and heck may even conduct joint exercises! Pakistan army just needs to prove a positive outlook on Israel, like the Turks (well, before Erdogan). During Musharaf's time, Pakistan already initiated a relationship with Israel. Pak army at the time expressed its interest in getting more cozy with the Israelis. The Israelis won't mind at all. Its good $$$. :)

    China only operates that junk because it has no choice. Arms Embargo.

    Rather, China should come to Indian products. Price is cheap, and quality a lot better than what the Chinese use. :)
