I like more MGs



Go for a Sho't Kal Gimel (from late '70s) with a .50 cal and two .30 cals, or a Sho't Kal Dalet (from mid '80s) with a .50 cal and two MAGs.

The mine plough is not a common choice for the IDF.



I suppose it's more common on Pumas, but sometimes also tanks were equipped it:

This looks like an exhibition piece:

1918.


Merkava Mk.1

1919.


1920.






The Merk looks like an excellent modeling subject.......

Unusual for IDF hardware, those were never used in anger.
