Koronet in Lebanon

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know how many Merkeva's the Israelis lost to the Koronet in the Lebanon? A newspaper report I read a couple of weeks ago mentioned 17, the Times on Sunday mentioned 43. Whether this figure solely refers to MBTs or other AFVs I am unsure and it is probably doubtful whether or not all were caused by the Koronet.
     
  2. Had me worried for a bit there. I suppose this is fairly good news for the future of british crews. Lets just hope Javelin doesnt fall into the wrong hands. One question to note, are the Merkava's equipped with Trophy yet? Akin the the UKs Hardkill DAS?

  3. I don't know if Trophy is deployed yet, but this is from this weekend's Sunday Times:
