Photos of Israeli tank "Merkava" with a torn off gun barrel appeared on the web

Pictures of the Israeli tank "Merkava" with a torn off gun barrel. Photos of the tank with this damage were posted on the Twitter account of The Dead District.


Where these pictures were taken and when is not reported. In the comments to the photo, it was suggested that the pictures were taken in 2006 during the military conflict between Israel and Lebanon (the second Lebanese war). It is assumed that in one of the battles a Lebanese anti-tank missile fired from an ATGM by one of the Hezbollah fighters hit the Merkava cannon. During the return shot, the tank's cannon exploded due to the previously received damage, but no one from the crew was injured. Later the tank was repaired and continued to serve.

It is also suggested that the tank's gun could have been damaged later, at the present time, for example, in the Gaza Strip for some reason.


For our part, we note that most likely we are talking about the war with Hezbollah in southern Lebanon in 2006.

Tank "Merkava" was adopted by the Israel Defense Forces in 1979. The tank's designers paid great attention to the protection of the crew, so this tank is considered one of the most protected in the world. Currently, Merkava tanks are equipped with Trophy active protection systems, significantly enhancing their already good protection.

                How many tanks with similarly torn barrels I saw in 2014 - T-64 APU. Here either wear or corrosion (as the cause of rupture) or poorly cleaned. There may be another reason - external damage, for example, the penetration of the barrel by a bullet of a sniper rifle of 12,7 mm caliber.

                    Quite.
                    And also a substandard (expired) fuse at the projectile. But this is of course in relation to the tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Israeli most likely really has sand in the barrel ... or any other defect (corrosion, factory defect).

            Not .... There would be a Ukrainian tank ...
            In the Zhytomyr region of Ukraine, employees of the General Prosecutor's Office detained a contract serviceman who dismantled the electronics on the 9A330 Tor anti-aircraft missile systems. He planned to sell the stolen blocks with electronic boards to buyers of precious metals.

            Judging by the fact that sometimes it is simply impossible to explain the reason for the appearance of minuses, I suppose that it is possible that someone has Parkinson's disease and just hands are shaking, instead of a plus, a minus is pressed.

            In the context of the current Bandera Ukraine , naturally, mentioning it evokes negative associations ...

            And in this, Ukrainians first of all need to look at themselves.

            You are probably Ukrainian, since you are so nervous about reanimating? Don't No.

            Blame yourself for how your state coups, aggression in Donbass, anti-Russian policy and rhetoric are perceived.

            Say thank you that you haven't got it in the mouth yet, as your "state" deserves.

              You are wrong. I am Russian, but my father, who is divorced from my mother, is Ukrainian. And he lives near Kiev, and is not a Bandera member, although he supported the changes and revolutions.
              And here I am comparing what we write, then in the evening on Skype I contact him. Well, and, accordingly, I react.

                  Well, let's try to explain ...
                  In the distant 70s of the last century, a Russian and a Ukrainian met in the Arctic. They raised the far north, got married, and I was born ...
                  I was sick. The doctors said the climate was not right. The family moved to the husband's parents near Kiev.
                  I was brought up in two languages, in two cultures. In 1991 the Union collapsed, in 1992 the parents quietly divorced. Mom returned to her parents in the Yaroslavl region, father stayed in Ukraine.
                  I have maintained warm relations with all my relatives. And in Russia and Ukraine. I communicate freely, ask questions, argue. In general, I did not turn away.
                  Therefore, I do not understand the individuals who stand up for the restoration of the Union, but at the same time drown the Ukrainians, like solid Bandera, farmers and so on.

                    Forgive me, but this does not explain in any way your statement that with your biological father a Ukrainian, you suddenly became Russian.
                    And even the fact that your mother is Russian does not make you Russian by nationality.
                    We are not Jews, whose nationality of children is determined by the maternal line ...

    Most likely - this is the place of collection of damaged equipment that was pulled out
    (or who left herself) from Lebanon in 2006. Akhzarit is still visible behind the Merkava.
    Merkava-4 without KAZ Trophy. In the next war - in Gaza in 2009, the Merkavas were
    already sent with KAZs. Which have worked successfully several times. There were no losses.
    In the background, on the mountain, is a concrete observation tower. Such are characteristic
    for the border.

      Not about the Merkava, of course, but it happens that the PRRD in the barrel explodes. I saw this on the T-80. It also cut off exactly so.

          I have always believed that the barrel is an integral part of a cannon, and if a cannon has no barrel, then how can it be considered intact? And how can you even say that this is a cannon if the barrel is missing. And in what case can we say that the gun is not intact?

          Sheikh Nasrallah has no choice but to live on memories. He has been hiding secretly in bunkers for 15 years without even a little bit. He does not sleep in one place for two days. All the time he is somehow transported - either in an ambulance, then in a fire engine, and once, even in a trash can. They just washed him badly and the poor fellow caught hepatitis.

    Maybe something flew into the barrel (a fragment) and the projectile jammed when fired.

    As long as I remember. The "Merkava" has Romanian armor, a German motor. And the gun is Belgian. And the caterpillars are generally from the "leopard-2". If we see a damaged cannon, then Belgium is likely to suffer. Israeli lawyers will solder a lawsuit against Belgium for a low-quality gun, and America will simultaneously announce sanctions against Belgium. The Belgians will traditionally make excuses for a long time, but under the yoke of indisputable evidence they will bend down and for another 50 years they will be supplying the Israeli army with tank guns free of charge. At the same time, a lawsuit will appear about the crimes of the Belgians during the Second World War, and for sure there will be a concentration camp on the territory of Belgium and the Belgians will pay indemnities to Israel for a long time like the Germans. And no one would even think that during the Second World War Israel did not exist and the indemnity looks strange.

      2 Military industry - produces 105mm cannon (copy of license) and 120mm cannon (original design), armor and most of the ammunition (including live rounds, training ammunition and ammunition for small arms). While Mdocot produces. Both smoke grenades and tower supports.

      11 Israeli aerospace industry
      Innocent factory - inertial navigation system.
      Elta - manufactures sensors and electronic optics in the infrared range.

      Foreign companies, supplying components for tank building
      L-3 Communication Combat Propulsion Systems - produces certified copies of the MTU MT883 1500 hp diesel engine and RENK RK325 transmission.

        Yes Yes! I remember how you wrote. Only you last time had a 1500 horsepower General Dynamics GD883 engine, and now these motors are already being built by L-3 Communication Combat Propulsion Systems. For you, it seems like building a motor is like assembling a refrigerator from Chinese components. When Israel does not have its own heavy and metallurgical industry builds tanks, you have to believe the tales about licensed production.

    You know, when I received my first passport (USSR), I filled out the box myself nationality... Perhaps I know better what I have? And you, judging by your stubbornness, slow-wittedness and attempts to draw what you want to reality, are Moldovans?
    Do not be shy. But your wine is delicious.

    Leader, up to this point you looked like a thoughtful, adequate person who doesn't like it when Ukrainians are insulted. And what can Moldovans do? Is it in your Russian blood? Or is it a complex of inferiority to belittle everyone in such a way?
