 Merkava MK I & II History:

The Merkava (Hebrew: מרכבה‎, “chariot”) is a series of main battle tanks used by the Israel Defense Forces and is the backbone of the IDF’s armored corps. The tank began development in 1970, and its first generation – the Merkava mark 1 – entered official service in 1979. Four main variants have been deployed, with the Merkava mark 4 being the latest version. The Merkava was first used extensively in the 1982 Lebanon War. The name “Merkava” was derived from the IDF’s initial development program name

.

The tank was developed in the Merkava and Armored Combat Vehicles Division of the Israeli Ministry of Defense, and most of its parts are manufactured in Israel. Its design concept is to provide maximum protection for its crew, and therefore its front armor was fortified and the engine placed in the front part of the tank, unlike most other tanks.

Design criteria include rapid repair of battle damage, survivability, cost-effectiveness and off-road performance. Following the model of contemporary self-propelled howitzers, the turret assembly is located closer to the rear than in most main battle tanks. With the engine in front, this layout is intended to grant additional protection against a frontal attack, so as to absorb some of the force of incoming shells, especially for the personnel in the main hull, such as the driver. It also creates more space in the rear of the tank that allows increased storage capacity and a rear entrance to the main crew compartment allowing easy access under enemy fire. This allows the tank to be used as a platform for medical disembarkation, a forward command and control station, and an infantry fighting vehicle. The rear entrance’s clamshell-style doors provide overhead protection when off- and on-loading cargo and personnel.

About Cobi Brick Sets:

Cobi brick sets are compatible with all other top quality brick brands.  Cobi Bricks are made in Poland and the sets are full of unique parts made for adding realism to each set.  These sets may require more attention to build due to the numerous parts and “layered” approach that Cobi Brick sets use.  Cobi Brick sets come with super detailed and easy to use colored instructions.

Are COBI Sets appropriate for children?

COBI Brick Sets are great for children and adults but you should be aware that younger children will need help with larger sets due to the huge number of parts and layered building style. We always encourage trying out one of the 1:48 scale tank sets to start out as they are smaller and are a great way to test the legendary COBI Brick quality.

About Warbricks.com

Warbricks.com is a family owned small business (Mom, and three children 13 and under). When we started Warbricks after we saw how much our own children loved playing with Cobi Tanks and airplanes.  We believe your family and loved ones will love them as well.

Did you know this product page was completed by a kid? Warbricks is designed to provide life skills to our children so that they have options in addition to whatever career path they choose through life. Every order provides our children an opportunity to learn customer service, shipping, and web design/search engine optimization skills. In addition to skills, the children earn money for savings, spending and giving so that they can experience the benefits of charity.

What to expect when you order:

Once your order is processed, you will receive an email with a tracking number that shows, on a map, where in the country your shipment is!  We always properly represent our inventory and if there is a problem or we make a mistake we will reach out and let you know ASAP!  We try to respond to all customer inquiries quickly but please remember that we are balancing work, school and family life!  You can contact us here.  We will always try to respond and address your concerns.

How COBI Pre-Orders work:

COBI Bricks are made in Europe and are shipped via shipping container to the east coast. We have no control over when they arrive as that is handled by COBI’s USA office. We do get approximate lead times and we make sets available for pre-order approximately 1-2 months before the sets are expected to arrive.  COBI sets do sometimes get delayed for various reasons but we do make a huge effort to ship out all pre-orders as soon as they arrive at our home business.

Shipping costs are very high for us due to the size of COBI boxes and the wight of the sets, so if you order multiple sets we typically send them out together and will set them aside until the pre-order set comes in. We encourage customers to make separate orders if they want the in stock sets to arrive before a pre-order set.
