up-armored Humvee, outfitted by Plasan Sasa, is designed to IDF specs for
enhanced protection. With the added armor kit, the vehicle weighs 5.216 tons.
Its protection level is classified but has repeatedly proven itself against
small arms, IED and other threats in Lebanon and I operations in the occupied
territories. Due to budgetary constraints, the IDF shifted procurement of the
M1113 to the USA, to be produced by O'Gara Inc. However, due to the surge in
domestic demand for urgent supplies of up-armored vehicles to the US Army, the
production of the Israeli batch was cancelled. It is yet unclear who will
produce these vehicles for the IDF requirement. In 2004 the IDF ordered 200
remote controlled weapon stations, mounting 5.56mm Negev machine guns or 7.62
MAG machine guns, to equip up-armored Humvees currently in service with the IDF.
