    Israel's Defence Minister Ehud Barak (front 2nd R) walks with Major General Yair Naveh, deputy military chief (front 2nd L), during a visit to a military base near Kibbutz Reim, outside the central Gaza ***** November 13, 2012. Israeli aircraft struck three times in Gaza in the early hours of Tuesday morning, hitting a weapons storage facility and two rocket launching sites used by militants, the military said in a statement. *******/Amir Cohen

    Good looking vehichle there! What is its name? Is it a surveillance vehicle? Because I only see cameras and such.

    Does it have any weak points against enemy infantry?

    Cheers

    Its name is [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Guardium [/FONT][/COLOR](see the caption at the beginning of the post).

    Was the Guardium constructed with any US funds or strictly Israeli engineered?

    An Israeli tank manoeuvres close to the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights November 13, 2012. Israel's army fired tank shells into Syria on Monday and scored "direct hits" in response to a Syrian mortar shell that struck the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli military said in a statement. It was the second time in as many days that Israel had fired across the disengagement line drawn at the end of a war in 1973, underscoring international fears that Syria's civil war could ignite a broader regional conflict. *******/Nir Elias

    For those that might know - that is a ship's engine room, not a submarine.

    Engine rooms are like submarines though - also cramped and closed. And very loud and hot!
