he U.S. Defense
Department has pre-
pared for Israel five
"very attractive" alternatives
to the production of the new
Lavi jet fighter, U.S. officials
said.
The five basic options, they
added, will include an addi-
tional 19 possible "varia-
tions," all of which are de-
signed to maximize employ-
ment levels in Israel and to
save money in the process.
Among the package of
alternatives, the officials said,
was the co-production be-
tween the U.S. and Israel of
F-16, F-18 or AV8 Harrier air-
frames, specially fitted with
"homegrown" Israeli-
designed Lavi avionics.
The Americans believe that
a co-produced alternative to
the Lavi could begin service
in the Israeli Air Force long
before the first Lavi would be
ready. Each of the basic op-
tions will reportedly cost less
than the Lavi, and will thus
enable Israel to spend more
money on other defense-
related programs, including
the possible co-production
with the U.S. of new diesel-
engine submarines.
The Pentagon's alternative
study was formally presented
to Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin last week by a high-
level U.S. delegation, headed
by the Deputy Under Secre-
tary of Defense for Policy and
Resources, Dr. Dov Zakheim.
Zakheim and his associates
have long been critical of the
entire Lavi program, con-
cerned that it will ultimately
cost Israel too much money.
The U.S., in recent years, has
already earmarked more than
$1.5 billion in Foreign
Military Sales grants to
Israel for the research and
development of the Lavi in
the U.S. and in Israel. Some
730 U.S. companies have
already signed $850 to $900
million in contracts for the
Lavi.

The Pentagon, completing
its own cost estimate of the
Lavi, concluded that the pro-
duction of 300 Lavis over the
next 20 years will wind up
costing Israel about $22
million per plane. This corn-
pared with Israel Aircraft In-
dustries' estimate of a $15
million per plane price tag.
In disputing the Pentagon's
figures, Israeli officials
argued that the Pentagon had
been opposed to the entire
Lavi project from the start.
U.S. Defense Department of-
ficials, they said, were clear-
ly anxious to see Israel pur-
chase more U.S:made planes
instead.
The General Accounting
Office (GAO), a branch of the
U.S. Congress, has recently
been deeply involved in
preparing its own cost
estimates on the Lavi. A
40-page draft GAO study was
sent to Zakheim and to
Democratic Representative
Lee Hamilton of Indiana,
Chairman of the House
Foreign Affairs Subcommit-
tee on Europe and the Middle
East, who initially ordered
the study. Its contents have
not yet been publicly re-
leased. According to sources,
the GAO, as a courtesy, has
rpesented to Israel some of
the various "numbers" in-
cluded in the report for pre-
publication comment.
There has been speculation
in Washington that the final
GAO cost estimate lies
somewhere between the IAI
and Pentagon figures.
American critics of the
Lavi program were not im-
pressed by the first flight of
the Lavi prototype. They
noted that it came almost a
year behind schedule.
Israeli supporters of the
Lavi charge that the Pen-
tagon is opposed to the
Israeli fighter out of fear that
Israel might indeed build a
superior plane without incur-
ring major cost overruns.
