Welcome to Mighty Zuk's place of mental rest and peace of mind. This is my realm.
I've decided it would be best to ditch the old Merkava thread for 2 reasons:
1)It does not feature any bunched up information in its main post, and valuable information is scattered across different posts on different pages.
2)Many AFVs that are not related to the Merkava, or related but are not it, appear in that thread with improper representation. There are other AFVs than the Merkava, and it would be better to refer to them in a general way.
As time will go by, I will arrange this thread into a sort of information center.
I will take up a few first comment spaces to make sure proper amount of information can be stacked up on the front page and for easier access for everyone.

Here is a post on the Nuclear Secrecy Blog on the early program. Good insight, but not the end-all-be-all of information on the subject.
