MIDEAST ISRAEL TANKS OF THE FUTURE

FILE – In this May 30, 2008 file photo, an Israeli Merkava tank drives from the Gaza Strip into Israel near the Sufa Crossing. Israel has begun to equip Merkava tanks with the new “Trophy” defense system: a miniature anti-missile system that detects incoming projectiles and shoots them down before they reach the armored vehicles.  If successful, the “Trophy” system could radically alter the balance of power if the country goes to war again against Hezbollah guerrillas in neighboring Lebanon. Its performance could also have much wider implications as American troops and their Western allies battle insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. (AP Photo/Dan Balilty, File)
