Kachlilit

ShermanShrike.JPG (21332 bytes)

Probably the weirdest Sherman modification ever, the Kachlilit is a tank fitted to launch the American Shrike anti radiation missile. The system was planned, produced and pressed into service right after the 1973 Yom Kippur War. It was meant to be used against Syrian and Egyptian SAM batteries radars, without endangering any planes and pilots.
