    Being a former tanker, I'm pretty well up on armor vehicles around the world - except for this one.

    This is a pic of an Israeli vehicle, off an A.P. News story today. Does anyone have a clue what it is? It looks as though it started life as one thing, then morphed into a bizzare command vehicle.

    Just curious.

    According to one of my coworkers, it looks like a Merkava specially modified for policing the territories. he was formerly IDF, that's all he would tell me.....;)

    The US military calls them Chariots (I'm assumeing Merkava means Chariot in hebrew) they are made by Isreal. I do believe they stopped making them when the US started selling them the Abrahms.
