The Armored Warfare version of Namer is the IFV variant of the Namer APC. The word Namer means "Leoaprd" in Hebrew, but in reality is a combination of the words "Nagmash" (APC) and "Merkava". The initial idea to convert older Merkava tanks to APCs appeared in the 1990s (following the success of the abovementioned heavy APCs), but with the production of Merkava Mk.3 hogging pretty much all of the available resources, it didn't take off until early 2000s. The 2004 Gaza conflict made the vulnerability of the early M113s a mainstream military topic and prompted all kinds of research and upgrade deployment. It also sparked renewed interest in the idea of converting the Merkava into an APC.

The initial APC prototypes were converted from obsolete Merkava Mk.1 MBTs. Their hull was made taller and the turret was completely removed. A compartment for several troopers was placed where a Merkava would normally carry its ammunition. These prototypes were tested and sometimes shown publically between 2005 and 2006 but it was the 2006 conflict with Lebanon that really spurred things. Instead of using obsolete hulls, a decision was made to produce the Namer APC with brand-new Merkava Mk.4 hulls roughly from 2008 onwards.

The first public mention of an IFV version appeared in 2009 with the Israelis announcing they were looking into arming the Namer with 30mm autocannon, although a prototype apparently existed in 2008 already. What followed was a decade of trials as well as further Namer (allegedly partially taking place in the United States of America) until the vehicle was revealed to public in 2017. The 2017-2018 Namer IFV version is fitted with an unmanned Rafael turret and armed with a combination of 30mm Orbital Mk.44 Bushmaster autocannon and Spike guided missiles. The interesting thing about this turret is the fact that it’s fairly modular and can be installed on other platforms (such as the Eitan APC) without compromising the internal structure.

By 2017, the amount of Namers in service was 120 and today, it is estimated to be roughly 150. By 2027, Israel wants to operate 531 Namer vehicles. However, how many of these will be the IFV version remains to be seen – the Namer IFV variant is still undergoing trials with only a few prototypes built. The results, however, do look promising.

This AFV's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable. However, its heavily sloped frontal armor and the front-mounted engine offer a significant advantage when it comes to crew protection.
