You wouldn't actually use 30mm gun on a rioting crowd ... well, unless they were really pissing you off and you were having a bad day. J/K

The important aspect is adaptability. Fine if you want to fully outfit a Bradley or equivalent as a riot suppressor, but its kindof a waste. I unno.

the main problem is fighting with militia and terrorists...Also, Israel dose have regular armys around it...A 25 mm can be very usefull in some situations.

The Bradley isn't a tank.

Well since someone already said AFV does quite fit, I wasn't sure what to call it. IFV? A thingy?

The Bradly is a range of AFVs, depending on the diffrent weapons carryed. But the version relevant here is an IFV. Seriously though, imagin an Achzarit with a 25mm and a Tow launcher....

israel has a bit over 400 IFV's

i dont know if they are that important though... i mean every tank has a a commanders MG, a coaxial mg for infantry, and morter for dug in positions...

why would u need a 30 mm to kill a man, when a normal mg can do it?

*edit: AIVF's... IVF's are in the hundreds im sure...
