Tank Commander Says Armored Corps Can Be Mobilized Without Reserves

Israel’s armored corps can mobilize for large scale operations without calling up reserves of men and tanks, the armored corps’ commander, Brig. Gen. Israel Tal, said today. He spoke on the occasion of armored corps day which coincided with the 12th anniversary of the 1956 Sinai Campaign, the first battle in which Israeli armor was employed on a large scale. Gen. Tal said his command has replaced all of the losses suffered in the Six-Day War and would be strengthened shortly.
