From the super-advanced F-35 style “see-through” cockpit to an Xbox controller, three companies – IAI, Elbit, and Rafael race through to build a state-of-the-art futuristic combat vehicle.

The machine is made for professional troops, with comfort in operation and giving high-tech features in a combat zone. »
