The Magach 7C is a Tier 6 progression Main Battle Tank under Sol Schreiber's dealership.

History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1992-1995
Service: 1995-2014
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 7C (7 Gimel) came in the mid-1990s, several years after the 7A variant, utilizing all the lessons learned from 7A’s design. It was based on the same principle – arrays of passive armor instead of an ERA kit – but the armor was differently (better) shaped, sporting an arrow-shaped look instead of the earlier boxy model. To cope with all this weight and to deal with 7A’s mobility shortcomings, the tank engine was replaced with a more powerful variant used in the early Merkavas. This really kicked the tank’s performance up a notch – once again, it was even more mobile than the older Magachs without extra armor, even when hauling the extra 5 tons around. With the improved tracks and suspension, not much original was left from the venerable M60 at that point.

This way, the tank remained in service for a long time, practically until being phased out in 2014. The 7C is the variant that is most closely related to the Sabra that was developed for the Turkish military and is currently in service under the designation of M60T.
