    Its not a beauty pageant. Bigger sight provides better FoV. Probably Trophy system also limits it thats why new sight is placed higher.

    Better destroyed sight than destroyed tank.

    I imagine hitting a sight just behind the Trophy system won't be the easiest task in history.

    Eventually more vulnerable to artillery shrapnel, but this is the case for all external equipment, Trophy radars included.

    I'm fairly sure Trophy doesn't get triggered by projectiles in the rock-30mm round range of sizes...

    The new sight has a significant increase in the FLIR aperture compared to the older one which will mean a lot more resolution. The interesting thing about the Merkava Mk 4 trainable sight was in some recent video of them in operation at XYZ the sights were XYZ clearly indicating that they could XYZ which is pretty impressive capability for a tank.
