Namera looks awsome, although I'm a bit concerned about just how well you can see with an OWS when you're in an urban terrain that is just cluttered with possible threats.

The APC is based on the Israeli caapability to build APCs from the hull of tanks. There have offered this technology to convert T-72 hulls to APCs.
The Nemera is a development of this technology, since it is based on the hull of the Merkava. So it is going to provide much better protection that the M113 APCs or the M1/2 IFVs.

In my opinion, that vehicle seems to be the ideal fighting machine for urban combat, especially when supporting infantry. It also has protection for its tracks so RPG attacks will have a lower chance of immobilising the vehicle.

yeah, it is a good APC. And its needed badly. But we now have a Chief of the General Staff that is from the Air Force, so i doubt the budget for it will become available.

Interesting that one of the new vehicles is called Puma, the same name that Germany choose for her new IFV although the names were chosen for different reasons.

The Namera looks exactly like its roots, i.e a turret hull converted into an APC. Sounds like it's fairly pricey though. How many M113s does the IDF still have in service?
