After previously releasing a Magach 1/2 tank, We proceeded to offer a Magach 3 as part of our Six-Day War series. Now another kit is available, a Magach 3 fitted with explosive reactive armor (ERA). Combat experience revealed the vulnerability of Israeli tanks to anti-tank guided missiles like the Soviet AT-3 Sagger, as well as to RPG-7s. It was clear that better protection was required, and Rafael developed the Blazer add-on ERA for several tank types. Blazer consisted of modular protective elements that contained inserts filled with an explosive compound to disrupt incoming HEAT projectiles. Blazer, a first-generation ERA, typically added about 1 ton to the Magach 3’s weight.

This 1/35 scale kit inherits excellent features from the existing Magach 3 model, but it has been suitably modified to represent an IDF version fitted with ERA. This means the tank has a completely new and appealing look compared to the standard Magach 3. The ERA blocks on the hull and the turret are accurately replicated. There are other brand new parts too. For example, there is a new machine gun with ammunition box and a new commander’s cupola. Additionally, there’s a generous selection of photo-etched parts for delicate elements such as tool brackets and tow cable brackets, plus the tank uses one-piece tracks made from DS for added convenience. The 105mm main gun’s weatherproof mantlet cover is also made from DS to ensure maximum realism. This is an incredibly detailed kit of the Magach 3, and the ERA suite provides a fascinating look for this Israeli tank.
