Report: Merkava Tank to be Exported for the 1st Time

Israel's Merkava IV Tank will be sold to a foreign army for the first time since the tank was produced in the 1980s, according to a Monday report by the Yisrael Hayom daily.

The transaction is valued at hundreds of millions of dollars. The Defense Ministry's budget crisis was apparently tied to the decision to export the tank.
