    Female tank instructors of the School of Infantry Professions conducted a drill with their Nagmachon tanks and armed hummers on Tuesday. These instructors are always training together since they are responsible for teaching all infantry soldiers in different professions, whether it be operating tanks and/or mastering firearms.

    Nah. These two look like they could cook food better than whatever that stuff is in the cheder ochel (I think it's supposed to be food, but not sure).

    Not at all. The helmet cover, called the mitznefet, was my lifesaver. As a pale ashkenazi Jew in the middle-east, I used every inch of the mitzenefet to block out the sun on my face.
    If the mitzenefet is sewn correctly, it only moves when you run and even then it pulls backwards away from the face.
    Infantry are supposed to have a helmet cover underneath the mitznefet with an elastic band in which the mitznefet is placed during urban warfare.

    Does it hinder the wearer's field of vision?
