Israel's tank deployment on the border with Gaza heralded the ground invasion of the Strip for almost three weeks following Hamas's attack on the country. His first foray served to show the Merkava IVone of the great assets of the offense. This is not the first armored model to make headlines in 2023. The Leopard 2 Germans, delivered to Ukraine by their allies, waged their war against Russia for weeks. But fighting against a militia in an urban and asymmetric conflict is very different. “They have a completely different design philosophy. The Merkava, on the one hand, is a defensive tank and the Leopard is an offensive tank,” says Defense analyst Guillermo Pulido.

How are Israeli tanks similar to the armored vehicles that the West has sent to Ukraine and that we have been hearing about since January? Are they used for the same type of operations and maneuvers? In the video that accompanies this news, the two models are compared with the help of Defense analyst Guillermo Pulido.
