The Magach 6B Gal Batash is a Tier 5 progression Main Battle Tank under Sol Schreiber's dealership.

History[ | ]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1999
Service: 1999-2014
Vehicles Built: cca 100
Operators: Israel

The Magach MBTs were (more or less) modified American M48 and M60 series of Main Battle Tanks, purchased by Israel starting from the 1960s. The first of these tanks were secretly provided by West Germany with the official U.S. deliveries following during the years after. The M48 series bore the designation Magach 1 to Magach 5, the M60 MBTs (the initial version) bore the designation Magach 6 and Magach 7 while the M60A1 and M60A3 MBTs bore the designation Magach 6A to Magach 6B. For many decades, the Magach series formed the backbone of the Israeli armored forces alongside the Super Shermans, Centurions and Merkava MBTs before they were finally retired in 2014.

The Magach 6B was an Israeli M60A1 or M60A3 MBT and the final evolution step of the Magach 6 series. The Gal Batash variant featured the Gal Fire Control System and a set of Batash (short for “Bitachom Shotef”, which stands for “overall security”) armor specifically designed to withstand modern ATGM hits. A more powerful engine was also installed to cope with the increased weight of the vehicle. Much like most other Israeli tanks, the Magach 6B Gal Batash was used solely by the IDF before being phased out completely in 2014.
