Today we present another article from ARMOR, this one from the May-June 2000 issue. This article is titled “The Merkava Mk.3 Defies its Critics” by David Eshel. Eshel is a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the IDF and wrote several articles for ARMOR, a few of which focused on the Merkava. Last month we posted an article by Eshel on the Merkava Mk.4. Back in April we posted an ARMOR article on the Merkava Mk.2 by Richard Ogorkiewicz.
