Is the Merkava IV in the Hezbollah 'Resistance Museum' real, or just a mockup?
Quick question. I'm watching a Vice documentary right now (Hezbollah's Propaganda War) and in the footage of the Hezbollah 'Resistance Museum' they show an exhibit of sorts showing captured Israeli equipment, the exhibit trying to get across that Israel will be defeated (or some other BS). Anyways, in the exhibition they have a Merkava IV with it's barrel twisted. Now, this is probably a stupid question, but is the Merkava real, or is it just a Hezziewood mockup? If it is indeed a mockup, it's a pretty well done one, at least visually.
Documentary can be seen here (part 1), with footage of the tank at about the 3:51 mark.
