Topic: Israel and its military


I recently read a book(HOW TO MAKE WAR by James F. Dunnigan) and it had a lot of information on Israel. I didnt know that Israel was such a power player in the world of war until I read that book. I was just wondering if anyone had any info on the IDF that they could tell me. I know they use the Merkava tank and some F-16's but that is about it.

I'm pretty sure Israel's soldiers are the best fighting men on the planet.

i just would like to know what israel fights with (type of jets, bombers,rifles,tanks,and any other equipment you would like to share) and also the type of training that the soldiers there go through. If i wasnt a USA citizen planning on going into the USMC as an officer i would join the IDF if that were possible(i dont know if they accept other countries citizens into thier officer corps)but any info you have i would be glad to here


thanks

I make that descision on based on what I've seen, heard, and analyzed. I am not biased towards Israel in anyway.

Fine, Kozzy, but we have had a lot of debates over which military is the best, and they always turn south, so we are not going to let another one start up.

Israel dose not have an officer corps, first you need to be a conscript....We dont conscript foreighn citizens.
