Magach is a Hebrew word that loosely translates as 'Battering Ram'. The Magach is what the Israeli army calls it's US built M48 and M60 tanks. The 1-5 were based on the M48 Patton and the later Magach 6 and 7's are based on the M60. The first Magachs were armed with the US 90mm gun but this was upgraded as soon as possible to the much more powerful British L7 105mm gun. Through their service with the IDF Magachs have been modernised with new engines, add on amour, extra machine guns, and targetting systems to keep pace with rival tanks. The most modern Magach 6 and 7's were in service until 2006, when the IDF had enough of the far superior Merkava tanks in service.
