IDF retires Pereh Missile Carrier “Tank”

c2d7d3e407574488e06e669e4be6e8f6Israeli military websites are confirming that the IDF has retired the Pereh Missile Carrier.  This weapons system is based on the hull of an M48 (Magach 5) tank hull and disguised to look like a tank.  While developed and introduced in the 1980’s, this vehicle remained secret until it was finally declassified in the Summer of 2015.  As far as we can tell, there have been no English language news articles yet on the retirement of the Pereh, we have obtained this news from friends of the site that follow Israeli armor developments more closely than we are able to.  It is unclear if this retirement will be of the entire Pereh concept, or if the IDF will be fielding a version based on a more modern tank hull at some point.  The IDF also operates versions of the Tamuz missle system mounted on lighter vehicles such as the M113 and some soft skin trucks.
