When Israel was first building up it's military, it modified lots of WWII equipment, many of it being very good. Its no wonder they are leading in technologies in today's market's.

It's not an Israeli vehicle. It's an Egyptian vehicle that was captured by Israelis.

The original M4-AMX ...

T-34/122 TD ...

Heavily modified by the Russians in Egyptian workshops ...

The TD was a chopped-down, cobbled together T-34/85.

They were pretty rare ... and junk.

Note the height of the Sherman-AMX vs the Pz IV next to it ...

Yes, just found the reference ... T-100

Still junk.

The NVA had similar models that weren't so cobbled-up ...

Do you have any info/pics of the PzIV behind the Sherman? I'm interested in the odd framework apparently attached to the TC coupola.

I don't much about it, but as far as I know it was a command tank used by Syria during the Arab-Israeli war in 1948. I think the extended cupola was a gun mount for whatever heavy machine gun Syria used at the time.

You can find good pictures of it from Google.

I did, Yes it indeed looks like a mount in other images, and the odd forward rake might just pitch a DShK far enough forward to somewhat be useable.
