Meng Model 1:35 - Merkava Mk.3D Early - Plastic model kit #TS-001

The Merkava is the main battle tank of the Israeli Defense Forces. It has four main variants - the Mark I, Mark II, Mark III and Mark IV. The Merkava Mark III was issued in 1989 and remained in production until 2003. In 2016 the Merkava III was considered the most numerous tank in service with the IDF. Unlike its predecessor, the Mk.II, the Mark III had a larger 1,200 hp diesel engine and was armed with the more advanced IMI 120 mm gun.

The Merkava Mk.3D was the further modification of the Mark III. The new version had a better armour and was improved with a panoramic commander’s sight. The Merkava Mk.3D saw action in various modern conflicts including the Lebanon War in 2006 and the Gaza War in 2009. It was also widely deployed in numerous security operations along the Israeli border.
