Some photos:
You can see here how small the Merkava 4's turret actually is relative to how it's usually seen.

The hull side armor has the writing "Explosive series 01 11, Ramta"
Ramta is a division of IAI. It seems to confirm that all major Israeli defense companies are involved in armor production for AFVs of the IDF - IAI, Elbit, Rafael.
You can also see here how the turret sort of sinks into the hull, showing the hull is perceived as taller than it really is because the side armor panels extend upward.
