The new equipment and tools include protective suits for
soldiers and advanced GPS systems. The protective suits feature special
protection for the solders including special protective gloves as well as
protection for the soldiers’ shoulders, chest,
back, groin, thighs and calves.
“This suit provides a wider possibility
for the soldier to approach and even to run, and it gives the soldiers more
confidence,” said Maj. Yuval Yaron, head of weapons and technology for the
Central Command, according to the IDF’s Website.
The IDF’s Central Command Fire Formation also received
specialized GPS units made by GARMIN.
