    Plenty...


    I guess most of those who were teens when they came from the former ussr would have finished their service by now, and those who were younger would probably have Hebrew as their first language.
    Most Russian born Israelis in the IDF have decent Hebrew yet still have a clear or even a heavy accent as they speak Russian within the family and among themselves.

    The Paras brigade hasn't made the switch to the Tavor yet. The next brigade in line is Nahal which will happen some time in 2010, most likely the March 10' draft since March 09 was supposed to receive them but didn't.

    IAI Introduces REX, an Infantry Friendly Robot

    IAI has unveiled today a compact unmanned ground robotic vehicle designed to support infantry units in combat. The platform, dubbed REX has a useful payload of 200 kg (450 lb), providing logistical sustainment for an infantry team or squad (3-10 soldiers) over a 72 hours mission. IAI expects the international market for such products will evolve over the next years, developing a demand for tens of thousands of units for military and civilian applications


    REX is designed with a level of sensing, situational awareness, and machine intelligence to apply a level of autonomy allowing the robot to follow a designated soldier at a constant distance. Each of the team members can control the robot without being distracted from the mission at hand. The key to this capability is the unique man-machine command interface patented by IAI. The REX control system is derived from dog training. The robot is trained to follow specific commands such as 'stop!', 'fetch!' and 'heel!' enabling the robot operator to stay focused on the mission while commanding the robot to perform the tasks within the level of autonomy it is assigned for. According to Ofer Glazer, head of innovation at IAI, "Controlling the robot in this way allows for intuitive interaction and rapid integration of the product on the field within a short time frame".

    I live in Israel since I was 9 years old, 16 years by now today. I speak only Russian with my father and other older relatives, but I speak mostly Hebrew with my friends, 'cause it is easier for them to understand me in Hebrew (even for the Russian-Israelis, obviously for the native-born Israelis). I also read and write well both in Russian and in Hebrew. I do write some poetry in Hebrew. Could you specify what is my first language?
