What do you get when you cross an M60 Patton tank with Israeli state-of-the-art weapons technology? You get the Magach...one helluva main battle tank.
During the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the Israelis lost the better part of their M60 tank force to the Egyptian Army deploying the latest ATGM, the soviet Sagger. After the war, they supplemented their remaining M60 force with hand me down US and West German tanks. They decided to upgrade these tanks with slopped armor and other high tech features that would make these cold war era tanks into fierce battlefield warriors for the 21st Century.
Academy's latest model of the Megach 6B Gal Batash is the first time this tank has been produced in injected molded plastic. This kit is loaded with exacting details that captures the true spirit of the mighty Megach.
