Israeli Command Teams (AISO101)
The motorised infantry, called Ch’ir Mamochan (pronounced kh-eer mah-moh-khahn) in Hebrew, accompanied the tanks into battle, clearing built-up areas and fortified positions. Most of their weapons were Belgian designs: the FN FAL rifle, FN MAG machine-gun, RL-83 Blindicide (‘Armour Killer’) bazookas, and plenty of Mecar anti-tank rifle grenades, along with a British 52mm (2”) light mortar.
