IDF to buy hundreds of light vehicles for SoF.



The IDF has restructured recently. Not long ago it formed a commando brigade to do special operations deep beyond the fronts. Shortly after it had an entire division dedicated to that. Today, this division is fresh off a month-long exercise that for the first time in decades practices a brigade-level amphibious landing, beside other usual methods like paradropping.
The division, at least in my understanding, is still using old vehicles like the Land Rover Defender, which are out of production. This buy is most likely to replace them.

Curious as to what it weights without the turret but with the bridging gear.

I'm very surprised the PA has gone down this route.

I personally believe the Israeli gov't should ASAP sell the IP for every AFV to the highest local bidder. It doesn't make sense to ignore the global market like that.
