WATCH: New Engineering Namer completes first Golan drill

The IDF’s new Engineering Namer APC, a variant of the standard infantry Namer APC, completed its first combat drill on Wednesday, crossing an anti-tank ditch in the Golan Heights, the Defense Ministry announced on Thursday.

The introduction of the vehicles significantly upgrades the IDF’s land combat capabilities in challenging terrain filled with heavily armed guerrilla threats like Hezbollah in Lebnon or Hamas in Gaza.

Like its infantry counterpart, the Engineering Namer comes with Rafael’s Trophy active-protection system against all shoulder-fired missile threats, and it is also tailored to deal with a range of battlefield engineering challenges.
