The Pereh was a missile launching vehicle that was designed to destroy tanks and enemy structures.
The Pereh was adopted by the Israeli defense force in 1995, it was made in the basis of the M60 chassis and was disguised to look like the standard Magach tanks that Isreal was using. This helped in turn lower its chances of being targeted by enemy aircraft due to its true purpose of destroying enemy tanks. The Pereh was mounted with a fake cannon and Spike missiles mounted in the back that would fold out of the turret when firing. The Pereh was protected by reactive armor to protect from ATM missiles and had secondary machine guns for protective reasons.
The Pereh is a very powerful missile launcher. The armor on the vehicle is also very strong, but the area where the missile launcher is located is very vulnerable to HEAT and APDS shells. The high rate of fire can take easily take down modern tanks.
