The Merkava Mk. I/II model is faithfully reproduced from 825 COBI construction blocks and realistically captures the appearance of its museum counterpart. Moving elements such as the turret and barrel of the tank, rotating wheels and tracks and opening hatches allow all fans of bricks and militaria to enjoy the model. The tank engine has also been recreated, which can be viewed by opening the service hatch. Thanks to the intuitive instruction, the construction is simple and exciting. Every adult enthusiast of history and military technology will certainly be happy to add this model to his collection. Thanks to the 1:35 model scale, the tank matches the other vehicles released in the Armed Forces series and will blend in perfectly with the Leopard 2A4, Leopard 2A5 and Abrams.

In cooperation with the Deutsches Panzermuseum Munster, we have prepared a model of the museum's Merkava Mk. I/II tank. The Merkava is the first Main Battle Tank designed and manufactured in Israel. Serial production began in 1979. Since then, four generations have been created. The tank is used exclusively by the Israel Defense Forces and has been involved in all armed conflicts and military operations that took place after the Yom Kippur War with the participation of the State of Israel.
The tank was designed according to very specific IDF requirements.
Above all, it provides very good protection for the tank crew, which is extremely valuable for Israel. The engine has been placed at the front, it is easily accessible and additionally protects the crew. The turret and combat compartment are located at the back of the tank. The turret has the shape of a wedge, and the hull has a low profile, which makes it easier to ricochet shells. High firepower is provided by the improved M68 105 mm cannon. The emptied ammunition compartment allows for transport. The Merkava II was equipped with reinforced armor, screens on the sides and a better fire control system. The Merkava II tanks were eventually replaced by the third and fourth generations, probably in 2021.
