D9 bulldozer which
has been used by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) since 1956 is one of the best
bulldozers in the world. In October 2003, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)
developed an all-new armor protection suite- Daqhpor Memugan- for D9R bulldozers
which are heavily equipped in the IDF. This armor suite consists of an armored
cab with high visibility as well as protection for engine, fuel & oil tanks
and hydraulic and electrical systems.
The D9R bulldozer
owns good protection and could even protect against RPG attack after being
fitted with slat armor. Light weapons like machine guns can be mounted on the
top of the cab for self-defense. It has been proved to be an efficient and
durable combat support platform.
This 1/35 scale
plastic model kit of D9R armored bulldozer perfectly represents mechanical
beauty and weight of the real vehicle. Workable dozer blade and ripper are
precisely and accurately modeled; rich cab interior details are provided; door
and window can be built in open or closed position; workable track links are
included; U.S. Armed Forces and IDF painting schemes are provided.
Total length: 247mm
