    The Israeli air force lost more than a fifth of its front-line fighters to surface-to-air missiles in the Yom Kippur war, 40 years ago this year. That triggered a revolution in air warfare doctrine and technology, starting in the U.S.: Just over a decade later the Pentagon had decided that all its future combat aircraft would use stealth technology that had barely existed before 1973.
