    Historic first: IDF operates unmanned APC in Gaza

    During Operation Protective Edge, the Israel Defense Forces used a unmanned armored personnel carrier, a first in history. The vehicle was used to deliver supplies to soldiers on the battlefield. "This is history," Lt. Avidav Goldstein, the head of the IDF's unmanned vehicle unit, said. "I feel we really broke ground in this realm. This is the first time in history, throughout the world, that such a thing has been done." The IDF modified an old M113 APC (the type of APC in which seven Golani Brigade soldiers were killed by an anti-tank missile in Shujaiyya), giving it the ability to carry several tons of supplies to soldiers in the field without endangering lives. The unmanned APC can travel 50 kilometers per hour (31 miles per hour) and hold around four tons of equipment. It is operated remotely by soldiers in a control vehicle, located inside Israel, which has a steering wheel, pedals and a screen.

    Lol, why is it surprising that fat piece of metal armour would have any problem going through a thin sheet of wood in fire.

    It's a show for hamsters and housewives :) What have you expected to see :)
    However, that platform is very speedy and agile while has a heavy metal-composite armor and a full set of automated combat modules on it.

    And the most important part: it is accepted for service and mass production.
