The IDF has agreed to supply additional electro-optical components for its Eitan armored personnel carriers

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Command has agreed to supply additional electrical and electro-optical components for its Eitan armored personnel carriers. The amount of the contract concluded by the Production and Procurement Department with the Israeli company IMCO Group will amount to more than seven million dollars.

This was reported by the Western publication Army Recognition.

IMCO Group CEO Ariel Kandel expressed pride in the company being a reliable supplier to the IDF. He noted that the additional order is a sign of confidence in the contractor. The head of the company added that the components produced by the company increase the survivability and improve the performance of Israeli armored vehicles.

The chassis of the Eitan armored combat vehicle has an 8x8 wheel arrangement. It combines mobility and firepower. This technique has already proven itself positively in a real combat situation.


Its electrical and electro-optical subsystems include power supplies, control panels, cables for connecting platforms, computing modules, lighting and much more.

There are two variants of armored vehicles. The first, the armored personnel carrier in question, is armed with a remote-controlled heavy machine gun. The second option, which is an infantry fighting vehicle, is armed with a 30 or 40 mm automatic cannon, which is controlled remotely.

    It’s a shame that there was no mention of armor and bullet resistance.
    And also the type of reservation.

    Threat is tempting to have an anti-tank missile system planted on board.....

      He has a KAZ. It also says that the supplied electronic components will increase survivability. Electronics can increase survivability only if there is a KAZ and this electronics is specifically for it.

        The Merkavas were burned on top with a regular RPG7 grenade, or even home-made explosive devices from drones....
        This can happen here too.

          It's true. But you wrote:
          ATGM planted on board

          That's why I reminded you about KAZ. Although, it is made of two hemispheres - on the starboard and on the left sides. Maybe it will hit the front or rear?

            after all, armored personnel carriers are made a little tall, although, given the current density of drones in the sky, this is not decisive.

      The modern combat situation, at the squad-platoon level, is just what it looks like. And the actions of Hamaz are no different from the actions of the women. BTGs, reinforced with “armor”, having been burned, began to be formed and used minimally. An armored personnel carrier, with good protection, is respected by soldiers in any theater of operations.

        Essex62 hi, Hamas has no artillery, no aviation, no factory-made missiles, Hamas has no armored vehicles, and in essence, no matter how they show it in the videos, Hamas cannot be called an army.

          According to reports from the Ministry of Defense, Bandera has no aviation for a long time. What is periodically demolished there, it is not clear where it comes from. The terrorists have nowhere to put the factory-made missiles (ATGMs). There won’t be enough Merkavas to implement everything. We armed and prepared them seriously. The Afghan slippers weren't even close. That is why the Jews have been poking around there for so long, although they are not constrained by any moral obstacles and are demolishing everything, along with the peaceful people. Artillery is of course a factor, can’t you argue with that? hi

            Essex62, I agree with your arguments, BUT there is one thing BUT in the news there are still no reports of long-term battles anywhere in Palestine, that is, the IDF is systematically taking territory for itself and Hamas cannot yet respond with anything, even about shelling Israel from self-made rocket launchers have not been heard of lately.

          Don’t you understand that the absence of this very artillery and aviation is actually happiness for them? Because a war with a conventional enemy is actually simpler. And it would look much tougher.

        Mikhail - Ivanov, in urban areas getting close to armored vehicles is easier than it seems, especially using underground communications. So this is a completely workable option, but the fact that IDF armored personnel carriers and tanks are not covered by infantry is a problem for the Israelis.

            And who, after such facts, will say that they are having a walk there? Like, bullshit mess with the Hamaz, if only they had armor and against the “white cappies” or the Pskov Red Banner, that would be in a “real combat situation”, but it’s just a laugh. Just think HAMAZ. laughing Bator is all the same who is against him, his task is to throw him alive on the front end and take whoever is left.

            Mikhail-Ivanov, if the video is fresh, it only says that the IDF is bad at learning, even at the beginning of the ground operation there were videos where Hamas was hammering with copters and RPGs precisely at a crowd of Israelis, and it is clear that the IDF soldiers either gathered to talk, or were just lazy disperse.

              In urban areas, and even in ruins, “dispersing” while moving behind armored vehicles is problematic. In the video, they were just behind the armor in a bunch. Someone slept through the flank or rear. The barmali emerged from the hole, shot and back. And, not so much, the population of Israel has decreased.

              They are not trained at all to conduct combat operations in such conditions. How the police behave. Like they take one or two criminals in a bunch. If they fought like this in Ukraine now, half of their army would not be left in a month...

                For at least 40 years now, the IDF has had a separate discipline - fighting in urban areas; special cities and villages have been built to practice actions in these conditions.

                    Well why? They drank a lot in the desert. I don’t remember from whom exactly, “Tawakalna” or “Al-Abed”. When, having deployed the towers, the Iraqis went to “surrender”, and when they entered the battle formation, they staged a massacre of mattresses. It wasn't that long ago. Normal oncoming tank battle.

                        So since that time there have been no big conflicts between large armies.
                        If we fought with the task of completely destroying Banderastan and liberating the Russian land, and not “grinding”, the counter-attacks would become inevitable. When we clash with Nata. Let's head to Kyiv, Abrash, with their crews, there will be not a dozen, but hundreds. They will try with all their might to prevent us from winning. Every big war has its own “Prokhorovka”.

            By the way, if there is infantry behind the tank, then the KAZ is usually turned off - it is fraught, you know, when it is activated, you can injure your own people. So the tank could have taken the barmaley.

                At the beginning of the operation, there were several videos of Merkava being taken from the RPG-7. Everyone was still asking - where is KAZ? And he, it seems, was turned off. And then they started turning it on and it didn’t matter - it seemed to be pounding normally, but the output was nothing.

                  Oleg Granovsky has a review on tanks and armor dated October 7 https://oleggranovsky.livejournal.com/1181883.html The video mainly refers to this period. In terms of ground operations, there are not many actual records of defeats, but in IDF publications specifically on the topic of repair and restoration of tanks there are figures of several dozen damaged vehicles, most are restored within up to 48 hours and either on the spot or in nearby repair battalions.

                    The question is, after two years of SVO, when will our tanks and cardboard infantry fighting vehicles be equipped with something similar? How much less would there be losses in equipment and people. Rhetorical question!
