  1. Definitely the most formidable looking tank out there today. It may not have the smooth sexy lines of other tanks, but then again it's not competing in a beauty contest.
  2. In addition, they missed out on a variant of the Rafael RCWS-30 Samson on the Namer, you can throw that up there. And an even better pictures for you to use for the Merkava 4M: http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/8484/60453900674292472e9eb.jpg > 100kb http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/6201/6045390317958845df74b.jpg > 100kb

    Customizable Soldier Load ( seriously?? )

    Indeed, you are always advised to scream out "reloading" or "jam". The reasons are two-fold: 1)- So they [squadmates] know that you can't cover them at that second and won't advance or retreat until you have reloaded. On the flipside, they know to cover you (and your sector) as well till you are ready again. 2)- So they know you have not been hit. If you had not screamed out "reloading" then all they would have noticed is an abrupt cessation of firing from your position which may distract your squadmates to check if you are injured, etc.

    You have to change the gas setting for that to work.
  5. Dragon Skin is not reliable under hot temperatures (think: desert, Iraq), it failed to stop incoming rounds.

    Merkava... IDF??

    He was being sarcastic.

    Merkava... IDF??

    A few things to note: 1)- Both Merkava tanks (NATO and OPFOR) were using Israeli camouflage. The NATO one was using standard Israeli OD Grey/Green, the OPFOR was using an older and rarely used Israeli camo scheme. 2)- Both tanks had Trophy, although the OPFOR also had an Namer AFV. To be honest, I have no idea where BIS is going with this.

    Going Cyclic; Blind Firing; Recon by Fire

    In Vietnam it was roughly 50,000 rounds per kill, or around $60,000; but snipers averaged 1.3 rounds per kill, or $2. ;)

    Merkava... IDF??

    As much as I am looking forward to the Merkava 4M with Trophy, I am even more excited by the prospect of the Namer with Iron Fist. Imagine thinking the APC will be an easy kill for your tank, only to have your KE shell blasted out of the sky (or bounce off) and having several Spike missiles rain hell on you.

    Well I can see the Namer easily becoming part of the U.S. Military; hell, some of the are actually built by GM in the U.S. right now. Plus it would offer a heavy APC option that the U.S. has been sorely lacking for some time now (even the Russians have one)

    Merkava... IDF??

    Stealing land... do you get hard every time you keep repeating these lies? Quick question, if the West Bank is so called Palestinian, then why didn't they protest against Jordan occupation of it for over 20 years? If Gaza was so called "Palestinian", then why didn't they protest against Egyptian occupation of it for over 25 years? I think we both know the answer to that. Way back on March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here's what he said: And finally, this is not the forum to discuss such matters. If you want to continue this discussion then feel free to PM me.

    Fine, no Trophy or Arrow for you. :icon_rolleyes: Seriously, if you have beef with funding anyone then start with Egypt, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc, before you start complaining about the one U.S. Ally in the region that actually gives something back.
  13. And it will still be a niche round 20 years from now since no one is going to give up the 5.56 or 7.62 in foreseeable future.

    Tanks with TROPHY?!

    Only Iron Fist is effective against KE penetrators since it basically slices them in half or deflects them enough to make them loose their forward kinetic energy.
