First All-Female Tank Crew to Be Stationed on Egyptian Border
A tank entirely staffed by female soldiers, including its commander, will deploy to the Egyptian border for the first time in Israel’s history.
The tank is set to be stationed there in the coming days, KAN reported on Wednesday evening.
The news comes despite the IDF’s continued uncertainty about whether or not the latest pilot program to integrate women into the Armored Corps has been successful.
The first pilot program, which was aimed at training women to operate tanks, concluded in June 2018 with four female soldiers graduating as tank commanders and two-thirds of the overall program successfully completing the course. However, in April 2019 the military announced that despite the seeming success of the trial program, it would not be continuing and the women who qualified would not be permitted to continue working with the corps.
