The Administration for Merkava and Armored Combat Vehicles in the Ministry of Defense, in cooperation with the Ground Forces and the Nahal Brigade, have completed a series of extensive tests on the “Eitan” armored personnel carrier.

The tests examined "Eitan’s” performance in difficult terrain in various areas of the country, from the Golan Heights to southern Israel, as well as its performance on the road.

The "Eitan" armored personnel carrier is the most advanced APC of its kind in the world, and is being developed by the Administration for Merkava and Armored Combat Vehicles in the Ministry of Defense. It is currently in advanced stages of development.

Last month, the Ministerial Committee for Security Affairs approved the recommendation of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and, in the coming years, the IDF is to be equipped with hundreds of Eitan vehicles.
