“Steel” had designed the study to the platoon level
And Control Division. In the study, which took place on the banks of the Jordan River near Dodgeball, rare capabilities view: commanders of patrol “Yael” יהל”ם unit (engineering unit for special tasks), and additional forces slowly Anoint your candle she forces crossing the river while fighting the enemy ambushed trained on the other side.

The view has the optimal operations model for delivering critical forces early when, day and night. Combat engineering corps presented the commanders all types of bridges that are
The commanders, including infantry bridge. Moreover, reconnaissance team “Yael” illustrates how infantry forces can be transferred efficiently using rubber boats and ropes.
Also responsible for patrol and security tools colachim the River, and can also get strong water currents. Else, also צמ”ה (mechanical engineering equipment) D-9 armored reconnaissance battalion and a collected helped in successful cooperation with infantry, artillery and armor.

“For us it is an operational challenge in several sectors, which can catch us in not
We expected them at all, “IDF commander site designed by former General steel agay Yehezkel. “If you know how to deal with the problem, which is the essence of the course, so it’s an issue that can be contained,” said Brig. Gen. Yehezkel it achievable and, the challenge to do it as long as you do it properly. Nothing beats sight, so things give
Changes take effect “.

Advanced across narrow water obstacle (m) is considered to be rare, as the shaachrona took place four years ago. Since then many things have changed, both technical and conceptual, and new capabilities in received expression in advanced. As an example, you can specify the new lives of the combat engineering corps, lately. You can view “Sayeret Yael” spread over the water, which can stretch for tens of meters, and is designed to move legs forces of a significant reduction in the time of the transfer. Another example is a system for intercepting anti-tank (anti-tank missile) “trophy”, successfully deploys designed the iron trail to live hens, as well as the usual order today.

“We have very high expectations of you, but I really trust ‘ designed steel.
There is no enemy in the North that can stop you, “said division commanders of the Northern Corps Commander, Gen. Noam with Tibbon. “It is important to take a problem-a problem and fix it. To prove the feasibility, to prepare, so that everything’s going to command, “said Gen. Tibbon, the determination and the harshness of the commanders is the watchword, and training need to be tough.” The Northern Corps Commander also told commanders on the next possible conflict scenarios, and the need to act quickly and efficiently.

But the view can expect four commanders training stations. Among them: HA, additional measures of יהל”ם, breach, mediation and MCM.
