Purchase and Supply

  • The first Merav’s were supplied to the IDF in April 2015

Air lifted protection

The Merav is the first shelter that can be air lifted with a cargo hook attached to a CH-53 helicopter and a C-130 aircraft.

This feature means it can be deployed in remote and inaccessible locations as well as on high ground as a forward base.
