The AH-1S Cobra first entered service with the Israeli Air Force (IAF) in 1975 and saw extensive use in Lebanon. The IAF named its AH-1S attack helicopters the ‘Tzefa’ (Hebrew for Viper).
In the 1982 Lebanon War 160 Squadron Tzefa’s used to attack Syrian armour and fortifications, destroying dozens of Syrian ground vehicles. Like the Americans, the IAF Vipers were armed with Improved TOW anti-tank guided missiles, M197 20mm Gatling guns, and M159 rocket launchers.
