The latest generation of Israeli-made Main Battle Tank nicknamed “BARAK” or Merkava v entered into service with the Israeli army to perform field test capabilities.
The Merkava v is an improved version of the Merkava IV that integrates the latest technologies and innovations in protection and digital combat capabilities.
The new Merkava v is fitted with day/night cameras providing a 360° view around the tank. The tank commander is equipped with a digital helmet providing a 3D view of the battlefield and all the data to conduct combat operations. The helmet provides all information about the target, which ammunition must be fired, and visual signals for tank damage.
