Tanks of the Early IDF. History of the IDF Armored Corps, Vol. 2. <font color=\"#FF0000\" face=\"Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif\">Expected to arrive October 2021!</font>
Vol. 2 continues the story of the early tank types to enter Israeli service. Following the military victory in the successful War of Independence, the IDF was still in considerable need of weapons, especially tanks and other armored vehicles.
Given the various embargoes and so on, the idea was to take an expedient approach and improve the quality of the tanks in hand while continuing to look for new sources of newer, more modern types. Of course, that would still include the venerable old Sherman, taking advantage of the quantity available around the world and its adaptability for improvements.
This second volume in the series covers two significant upgrades to the overall firepower available with the Sherman, specifically what became known as the M-1 and the M-50, as well as the newly-developed French AMX-13.
While there were still some major technological challenges, as well as limited sources, this process was made somewhat more possible because of corresponding developments within Israel’s infrastructure.
With 325 pictures.
