    I wonder if there are any pics out there of Captured ZIL-151 Trucks in Isreali Serivce that i would really like to see

    Interestig truck vyscels Yugoslav prouction TAM 5000 who yugoslavia sold Egipt during 1960. In tis picuters  

  3. Andrej Mlakar15/2/10

    Many of this captured wepons during Israel-Araic wars on the Egipt army Yugoslav donided. This picuters proow this argument. Rocket anti tank veseels ar from Yugolsavia.

  4. This is a very informative website and the photos are excellent. I found an error, however: the captured Egyptian tank identified as a "Renault" was in fact a British-built Vickers Mk VI light tank.

  5. Przemem20/3/16

    I have a question - how many T-34-85 tanks were captured by Israeli forces in 1956 and 1967? And how many entered the service with Israeli forces?

  6. No T34 were used by the IDF but as
    Buried canons in bunkers and settelments

    Does anyone know the model of helicopter used to rescue wounded Israeli soldiers during the Yom Kippur War? They flew in at treetop level 24/7 and landed at a hospital in Tiberius in the parking lot. I was there giving blood in the lobby as they rushed casualties past me on gurneys. I want to write my memoirs of the war.

  9. A brilliant collection of photo's here, it's good to see a bit of history in such detail.

    Could you confirm for me if the IDF used Standard Centurions in the 6 day war, as I can't find reliable information on the matter.

    I weren't sure if they were upgraded with the 105's prior to this war, I know the engine upgrades were made around the time prior to 73 and in the 80's.

    I'm asking as I'm getting into 3d modeling using computers and I'm producing equipment used by Israel throughout its history as a nation, and I have a great respect for the Israelis and what they have come through throughout their existence as a nation.
