Israel says US reneges on warplane technology

Israeli defense officials charged that the United States was reneging on its promise to provide technology for Israel's Lavie warplane project. The $4 billion program to build a new generation of fighter, under way after years of heated debate, received a boost last month when Washington approved participation by US companies.

Mr. Weinberger is viewed by Israelis as the most unfriendly figure in the Reagan administration.
