4 items left

The Achzarit is a heavy armoured personnel carrier produced by the Israeli Defence Forces in 1988. Its name means "Cruel" in Hebrew and in civilian life is used to refer to a woman. 

The Achzarit was built on the basis of the Soviet T-54/T-55 tank, several units of which were captured by Israeli Forces from Arabs during the Arab-Israeli wars. The turret was removed from the tank and its chassis was redesigned to make it suitable for carrying soldiers. The vehicle was equipped with a smaller, but more powerful engine and has reactive armour.

The armament of the APC consists of three 7.62mm machine guns, including one controlled by a Rafael Overhead Weapon Station. Later versions feature bulletproof glass turret to protect the commander from small arms fire when he looks outside the vehicle. The Achzarit was deployed during Operation Rainbow in Rafah in 2004 and the Gaza War in 2008.
