Israeli «Pereh» tank officially revealed

Earlier this week the Israeli Defense Forces officially declassified the “Pereh” (Wild) anti tank guided missile launcher vehicle. Based on the hull of the M48 tank, the Pereh features a sizable turret with a fake gun barrel intended to hid its true mission of launching Tamuz ATGMs (also known as the Spike.)

The large bustle on the back of the turret pops up to reveal the launcher tubes, of which there are twelve. According to Israel Defense, the Pereh has been in service for 30 years. Much speculation has been made in various online forums over the past few years as pictures of these vehicles have been leaked.
