The article presents information on the U.S. Marine Corps and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The U.S. Marine Corps and the IDF are both conducting low-intensity combat in an urban environment. The IDF force structure primarily consists of heavy armored forces. It has deployed unique 44-ton Achzarit infantry assault vehicles, 55-ton Nakpadon infantry carriers and 50-ton Puma combat engineer vehicles that are based on deturreted tank hulls. IDF heavily armored combat teams can easily penetrate urban areas defended by low-quality militia equipped with obsolescent crew-served weapons.
