Israel Tal - military theorist dies at the age of 86

I saw this morning that
Major General Israel Tal (res.) died in Rehovot on the 8th of September. Talik is considered the father of the Israeli Merkava, a key weapon in the Lebanon conflict. His work on armour doctrine was crucial to all of the conflicts fought since the Six Day War.
