Israeli Armored Vehicles in Demand in Iraq

(Israel21c) - An Israeli company - MDT Armor, a subsidiary of Arotech Corporation - has recently supplied four armored vehicles to be operated in Iraq, including two vehicles for an unnamed embassy in Baghdad. "Our armored vehicles have proven themselves in battlefield conditions," said Robert Ehrlich, Arotech Chairman and CEO. "MDT vehicles will help protect the lives of those serving in Iraq." "A Land Rover Defender took 29 bullets during a terror attack in Hebron in November 2002, and none of them penetrated the vehicle," said company spokesman Jonathan Whartman. "In another incident, a U.S.-built Savannah van with MDT armor was being used as a school bus when a bomb exploded just outside. None of the children inside were hurt."
