Our close and tight connections to the Israel Ministry of Defense, the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), and to the leading Israeli military and defense industries and companies, have allowed us, in our over 35 years of operation, to supply almost every military equipment and firearms asked for by our clients. The Israeli army equipment that we provide, both surplus and new, range from ammunition, Israeli gas masks, military wool blankets to Israeli firearms, military vehicles and surplus aircraft.
The Israeli military is basically using Israeli and American made equipment since the early days of the establishment of the state. American made military equipment has had a crucial role since Israel’s war of independence in 1948 as American tanks, vehicles, firearms and aircraft were shipped to Israel from American military surplus equipment in Europe following the end of World War 2. Some of the American military equipment used by the young Israel Defense Forces were the M4 Sherman tank, M3 half-track, B-17 Flying Fortress plane, P-51 Mustang fighter, M1 Garand carbine, M1 Thompson, Browning and Louis machine guns just to name a few. Most of the other Israeli military equipment was gotten in one way or another from Europe and from the local Israeli military industries. From then on, the special bond between Israel and the US has led Israeli military equipment to be one of the most advanced in the world. Almost all US military equipment sent to Israel has been modified and equipped with Israeli made military equipment in order to better adapt the item to the local uses in the battlefield. Examples of this can be seen in the F16 and F15 fighter jets, the Magach tank which was based on the M48 and M60 Patton, the Machbet based on the M163 and many more examples.
Since the Israeli military is either in battle or training for battle, it is one of the most battle proven militaries in the world and as such it is often in the forefront of military technological innovations. Many of today’s weapon systems used by American and other armies were first tried by the Israeli military which later sent back feedbacks for further development. This has ensured that Israeli military equipment has been one of the most advanced and battle proven, ensuring the protection of the soldier together with deadlines for the enemy.
