Description
The Merkava (Hebrew: מרכבה"chariot") is a main battle tank used by the Israel Defense Forces. The tank began development in 1973 and entered official service in 1978. Four main variants of the tank have been deployed. It was first used extensively in the 1982 Lebanon War. The name "Merkava" was derived from the IDF's initial development program name.
Design criteria include rapid repair of battle damage, survivability, cost-effectiveness and off-road performance. Following the model of contemporary self-propelled howitzers, the turret assembly is located closer to the rear than in most main battle tanks. With the engine in front, this layout is intended to grant additional protection against a frontal attack, especially for the personnel in the main hull, such as the driver. It also creates more space in the rear of the tank that allows increased storage capacity and a rear entrance to the main crew compartment allowing easy access under enemy fire. This allows the tank to be used as a platform for medical disembarkation, a forward command and control station, and an infantry fighting vehicle. The rear entrance's clamshell-style doors provide overhead protection when off- and on-loading cargo and personnel.(info from wikipedia)

This my attempt to try and make the Merkava Mark IV Main Battle Tank for NATO using the M2A1 Slammer and all its variants as a base. they can be found in NATO (Woodland) > Tanks Nato (Woodland) > Artillery NATO (Desert) > Tanks and Nato (Desert) > Artillery in the editor.

All Normal ERA and Medical versions are armed with 2 Titan AT missiles each that can be fired from the main cannon.

All Tanks come with woodland and desert skins.

notes:

- The Tanks are reskins of M2A1 Slammer and all its variants as the models are based on the real thing.

- The MedEvac versions do not use the red cross as it is a protected symbol instead they uses the Arma 3 Red crystal symbol.

Hey, I've got a problem with your Merkava and your Namer, both of them can be spawned in editor but not in Zeus, do you know why?

No problem! Thanks!

After some testing it seems that the firing computer can only be used by the gunner of the tank and not the commander sorry.
