Military Photo: Israeli Recycled Tank


Israel has used captured T-55s as APCs. Called the Achzarit, it has a crew of three and carries seven infantry. It was also equipped with three 7.62mm machine guns. Early version the crews had to get out via hatches on top. The Israelis apparently were able to rig a clamshell ramp as pictured below by removing the older engines and using a more compact engine.
