The Pathbreaker of IDF

 

 

 

Because of its special combat environment, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is equipped with many peculiar weapons and equipment, one of which is the D9R armored bulldozer with slat armor. The D9 bulldozers are originally designed for building, logging and mining purposes. The Ramta Division of the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) developed an all-new armor suite, Daqhpor Memugan, for D9R bulldozers which were in the IDF service in a large number in October 2003. This armor suite can provide overall protection to D9Rs. From 2005, D9Rs have been added with the slat armor suite, which is effective in protecting them from RPG-7 attacks. Besides, weapons like machine guns and grenade launchers can be added on top of the cab for self-defense.
MENG has now announced the SS-010 D9R Armored Bulldozer w/Slat Armor model kit which is a replica of the latest IDF D9R variant. This kit includes brand-new tooling workable track links and perfectly represented complex slat armor.
