COBI 2621 Merkava Mk. 1/2
Merkava Mk. I / II has been faithfully reproduced from 825 COBI building blocks and realistically reflects the look of its museum inspiration. Moving elements such as the turret and barrel of the tank, rotating wheels and tracks and opening hatches allow all fans of blocks and military to enjoy this model. The engine of the tank has also been recreated, which can be viewed by opening the service hatch. Thanks to the intuitive instructions, the construction is simple and exciting. Every adult enthusiast of history and military technology will surely be pleased to add this model to their collection. Thanks to the modeling scale of 1:35 the tank fits the other vehicles released in the Armed Forces series and will perfectly match the Leopard 2A4, Leopard 2A5 and Abrams.
In cooperation with the Deutsches Panzermuseum Munster, we have prepared a model of the museum’s Merkava Mk. I / II. The Merkava was the first main battle tank designed and manufactured in Israel. Serial production started in 1979. Since then, four generations have been created. The tank is used exclusively by the Israeli Defense Forces and has been involved in all military conflicts and operations that took place after the Yom Kippur War involving the State of Israel.
The tank was designed according to very specific IDF requirements. Above all, it provides very good protection for a tank crew, which is extremely valuable to Israel. The engine is located at the front and is easily accessible and provides additional protection for the crew. The turret and the fighting compartment are located at the rear of the tank. The turret is wedge-shaped and the hull is low profile, which makes it easier to minimize damage. High firepower is provided by the improved 105mm M68 gun. The empty ammunition compartment can allow for the transport of troops, as well. The Merkava II tank was equipped with reinforced armor, side screens and a better fire control system. Merkava II tanks were finally replaced with the 3rd and 4th generations in 2021.
