Modern Israeli Tanks and Infantry Carriers 1985 - 2004 Paperback
Illustrated by Tony Bryan
Part of the New Vanguard series
The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) has introduced a variety of new armoured vehicles since the 1980s.
Elderly tanks such as the M48 and M60 have been rebuilt and in the form of the Magach 7, improved beyond recognition.
The performance of existing models of Israel's indigenous Merkava tank has been similarly enhanced.
In addition, the new Merkava 4 MBT has recently entered into service.
Israeli infantry have also received innovative fighting machines including the Achzarit heavy assault carrier and Puma combat engineer vehicle.
The Nagmachon and Nakpadon, tank based carriers intended for low intensity conflicts, have also joined the Israeli inventory.
This book examines the inception, design and combat record of these formidable fighting machines.
