In theory Iron Fist is a better system to Trophy and it has preformed well in tests but unlike Trophy its not a mature syatem ready for battlefield use. A number of countries are trying to develop simmilar systems but Trophy is the only mature system in the world and battlefield ready. This week live fire exercises were held and Trophy succesfully defeated anti tank missiles fired at it ( with crew inside the tank ). Another tanks not equipped with Trophy was hit and damaged by a Kornet so we must think about the lives of our troops. The US military finally took on the defense establishment and the tanks in Afghanistan are equipped with Trophy because the US system is not yet battlfield ready whilsy Trophy is and we must think about the soldiers lives now not is there going to better system still in the test phase but not yet battlefield ready. The US recently had a simmilar problem. Their new Littoral Combat Ship, two companies offered two different designs and the navy was going to test the prototypes of both and then decide on which to buy. In the end they decided to buy 50% of one design and 50% of the other for the sake of business. Trophy is a very capable system so lets put it onto the Merkavas and when Namer plant is opened in the US where it is being built hopefully Iron Fist will be battlefield ready and we can put that on the Namers which is a good compromise that way both Raffael & IMI get business and instead of just Trophy we have Iron Fist avalible to export which gives us two possible succesfull export products rather than relying on hoping that only relying on just the one. In the end the market will decide which is preferrs.
