Following the Six Day War in 1967, France—which had previously supplied the bulk of Israel’s advanced armaments—imposed a unilateral arms embargo on Israel. This prompted Israel to regroup its indigenous arms industry and require it to supply the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with the advanced weapons that were embargoed.29 Due to its small size, geopolitical position, on-going border hostilities and a security policy that relied on technological superiority, the Israeli Government increasingly sought to develop a technology-based arms industry in the ensuing years.30 After weathering a severe domestic economic crisis in the 1980s, Israel re-emphasized its quest for state-of-the-art arms technology for niche markets (both domestic and export) and expanded its comparative advantage in the retrofit and upgrade market.31
