Israeli Army to Upgrade Infantry Units
23 September 2010


The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) has plans to equip its infantry units with new tools and weaponry to enhance its combat unit capabilities in counterterror operations, as well as urban and guerrilla warfare.

The new weaponry includes a tactical sniper rifle, the HTR 2000, which has a range of over 1,000m, according to the Focus Information Agency.

The IDF has also purchased Polaris all-terrain vehicles to transport heavy weapons in the battlefield and to move wounded troops.

The troops will undergo training on handling explosives in order to carry out autonomous demolition and sabotage operations independently.

Some infantry units have been currently equipped with sharpshooters and Tiger, an Israeli-made armoured fighting vehicle, and have also deployed the Matador, a shoulder-launched missile.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge, President of the United States 1924-1929
