Israeli armoured brigade equipped with advanced defence system
The entire Iron Trails Brigade, a tank brigade within the Israeli Defence Force’s Armoured Corps, was recently equipped with the Trophy active defence system. The new defence system identifies and eliminates anti-tank missiles before they can reach the tanks on which it is installed.
In the past month, the Iron Trails Brigade, which boasts a number of advanced Merkava Mark IV tanks, completed a significant exercise in conjunction with engineering forces. This drill involved cooperating with other units and focused on the advanced platforms used by the unit.
“The Iron Trails Brigade’s exercises are difficult, reflecting our belief that we must push the commanders to the limit of their abilities and those of the platforms,” said Colonel Einav Shalev, commander of the unit.
