I see the fighter jet discussion, and I decided I should give these 2 shots a try, you might like, or not.
Anyway, I think they are the Israeli merkava mk 3 or 4, not sure.
also, let me just say, I really wished for a better lens, a more appropriate lens for this occasion, the 70-200 f/4 for example. they were pretty far most of the time.
c&c are welcome.

Well, the enlistment rates to the idf are dwindling, even though its required, so they have set up certain days in school in which we are "exposed" to the idf.
this day in particular mainly revolves about "war heroes" talking, but they need to finish it with something big, so we are given a fire display :P
and thanks for the comments! :)

Thank you guys for all the comments,
it was really more exciting to see and feel than to shoot. :)

Nice shots, both of them.

Now if only you could clamp a 15mm Fishy on the end of the barrel looking in toward the tank!

Talk about your killer rig shot!
