    I know this is a photo thread but I`ll post a question:

    I just read this in a Haaretz article:

    [SIZE=1]http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/891001.html[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=1]"In the offensive realm, Barak considers it critical to improve the IDF's maneuverability. He has already proposed to the cabinet that two new reserve divisions be created. These would include armored brigades, but would not require the purchase of many new tanks, as several units have been disbanded in recent years, and their tanks are still in IDF warehouses."[/SIZE]

    Is he talking about Magach-6 tanks here, or Merkava MK2`s ?

    No real way for us to know from that caption, but the only regular brigade that was disbanded, was my brigade: 500, which used the Magach7C.

    also my reserve unit is made out of Mahach7C/6B tankers which were turned into infantry, along with younger guys that served in the Kfir infantry brigade, as part of the false perception that came up after the fall of Sadam, that the real focus should be on low intensity conflicts( Palestinians) and that the air force could handle everything alse.

    obviously things are shifting the other way now, as result of last summer's adventure.

    Thank you for a quick answer!

    It`s great to have IDF tankers on this forum.

    You mean the historic 500th Arm Bde? It was disbanded?

    I don't know about historic, it became a regular armored brigade in 1972 and yes, it was disbanded in 2003.

    The unit tag moved to some rear base, for the sake of the brigade's fallen, or so i was told.

    Well I always thought that the 7th and the 500th Arm Bdes would never be disbanded, if only for historic / morale reasons. You don't cut short the life of the bde that saved Israel in 1973...

    I see everyone have discoverd the upgraded IDF website, they've turned it into a much more user friendly site, but it's too bad they aren't updating it more often.
