From the Lebanese Army thread, an Israeli-donated former SLA M113 now integrated into the Lebanese Army.
To get this topic back on track - some photos.

Outgoing Samaria Brigade Commander Colonel Nimrod Aloni.
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7...230801,00.htmlCol. Yarom served as an officer in Sayeret Golani. He lost his foot after stepping on a landmine during an operation in Lebanon. However, Yarom returned to active duty after his injury. During the Second Intifada, Yarom was injured again, this time after being shot in the abdomen. He managed to overcome this injury as well, and returned to Golani where he served as the commander of Egoz Unit and commander of the Reconnaissance Battalion during the Second Lebanon War.
It's not his fault, but I understand why he feels that way.
Apperantly fresh reservists from the 7th and 188th brigades, are being converted to Magach tanks...
OK. first of all... [SIZE=5]MUAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Now, I would argue that the army's logic is lacking with having me, a former Magach'nic, being converted to infantry, while former Merkavists are being converted to Magach - if I wouldn't rather bite myself to death before i'll go back to serving on one of those things myself.
So, all I got to say is, have fun! [/SIZE]
So, serious question. Why are they using those when we've already seen photos of Merkavot lined up in rows as surplus? Is the Magach 7 superior to a Merk. II Baz? I'm assuming they haven't laid up any IIIs and IVs.
