IAI Lavi (Lion) -- multi-billion $ fighter aircraft project developed by Israeli government in the '80s, canceled due to lack of funds and to the pressures of US administration (it was a potential competitor for the export of F-16). Lavi was plenty of groundbreaking technologies developed by Israeli engineers. Many of the Lavi's sub-systems and components continued to be developed by the Israeli aerospace industry and are nowadays available in the defense marketplace as separate systems.
IAI Lavi B-2 (1986) IAI Lavi (Hebrew: לביא, "Young Lion") was a single-engined fourth-generation jet fighter developed in Israel in the 1980s. Developed by Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), the choice to develop the Lavi was controversial, both with the Israeli public due to the enormous associated costs and particularly with the U.S. government due to competition with American jets on the export market. These issues led to its ultimate cancellation in 1987.
The IAI Nammer (נמר "Leopard", but also in Hebrew meaning "Tiger") was a fighter aircraft developed in Israel in the late 1980s and early 1990s as a modernised version of the Kfir for the export market. Although a prototype was built and flown, buyers were not forthcoming and development was ceased without any further examples being constructed. The avionics of the Nammer were to have taken advantage of the work undertaken for the cancelled Lavi project.
