    It was modernized and it is still in use. It will be phased out with the arrival of David Sling.

    Thanks "Camera"!
    Another question: Are the Systems M-107 and M-110 still in use or retired as in all western armies? And did the IDF had the long barrel version of M-110?

    According to INSS they are still in service (but their data is not always accurate): http://www.inss.org.il/upload/(FILE)1284986151.pdf
    If I'm not mistaken, the IDF had the long barrel version of the M-110.

    A question: what is the context of this Sayeret Matkal pic?



    The exposed face is Doron Avital, unit commander when the photo was taken and now Knesset member.

    Capture of Mustafa Dirani would be my guess.

    The warships appear to be of the Sa'ar V corvette class.
