Sorry, this item is out of stock
Contains five plastic Merkava 1 or 2 Tanks, one tank commander sprue, one decal sheet and six unit cards.
After the 1967 war, the purchase of modern military equipment became more difficult and the Israeli government decided to design, develop, and build an indigenous main battle tank. The design prioritised armour, armament and mobility in that order, with the key characteristic of the new tank being its armour and crew protection.
