IDF's Armored Vehicle Has Added Protection

As the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers bravely protect Israel's borders, it is important that they have the needed equipment to help keep them safe during any threats. A new armored vehicle with an active defense system will make sure they stay protected whenever danger strikes:

The system can quickly, automatically and independently identify the firing of anti-tank missiles towards armored vehicles.

Once identified it launches its own weapon that neutralizes the incoming missile mid-flight; at the same time, within seconds it directs the tank's barrel towards the exact point from which the missile was shot...

Brig. Gen. Baruch Matzliah, head of the Merkava Tank Administration, said: "The Namer with the 'windbreaker' will provide IDF soldiers with the highest level of protection there is and grant them security and a significant edge on the field of battle."

Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union.
