IDF takes delivery of armoured trailers

(Israel)  In its last big bun fight with Hezb-allah (2006) advancing Israeli armour found themselves runing out of fuel and water whilst inside Lebanon, and had to return to Israel under attack. Following the war, the army resolved to prevent this from happening again, and looked into ways in which to mitigate that risk and so began developing trailer models, and testing them with infantry brigades in a variety of terrain. 10 years later and the military is acquiring the trailers, which can carry 8 tons of logistical equipment, and be attached to all IDF tanks currently in service. But hey why listen to me rabbit on when there’s a film which can explain this much better
