The Israeli Air Force's (IAF's) Planning and Organization Department is currently implementing a plan aimed at ensuring Israel can sustain an unprecedented campaign of strikes if another full-scale conflict breaks out, a senior IAF source has told Jane's.

The source said the current plan for 2020 is to ensure the IAF can direct "waves of massive, heavy fire" at any potential enemy and reach a strike rate that "surpasses anything seen in Israeli military history – and even world military history – relative to the number of aircraft."
