Israeli Armor Museum
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

That is a great website.

It's amazing what the IDF did with the armor that was available!

Indeed I remember the French army having tried to put together Sherman hulls and AMX-13 turrets. I'm not sure this is a specifically Israelian modification (EDIT : checking on wikipedia, the AMX Sherman was indeed used by Egypt) but rather a French one, at least originally (Sherman FL-10 in 1955 = Sherman with a French oscillating FL-10 turret).

The French army did other trials by putting together M24 Chaffee hulls and AMX-13 turrets, and AMX-13 hulls with M24 Chaffee turrets ("AMX-13 Chaffee" in 1960) http://www.chars-francais.net/new/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1255

At least one "AMX-13 Chaffee" exists in France.

I was making more of a comment to the updates to the "other" armored vehicles, not specifically to the AMX 13 turret on the M4 chassis, which I know isn't IDF. Laughing

"This was an Egyptian modification of the Sherman, but the conversion was designed and built in France. It mounted an AMX-13 FL-10 turret on a Sherman M4 hull. This tank was abandoned by the Egyptian Army in the northern Sinai near El-Arish during the Six Day War (1967)."
