The motorised infantry, called Ch’ir Mamochan (pronounced kh‑eer mah-moh-khahn) in Hebrew, accompanied the tanks into battle, clearing built-up areas and fortified positions. Their main weapons were the Belgian FN FAL rifle (used both as a rifle and, in its heavy-barrelled form, as a squad automatic weapon) and the FN MAG machine-gun. Each platoon had a British 52mm (2”) light mortar, a number of Belgian RL-83 Blindicide (‘Armour Killer’) bazookas, and plenty of powerful Belgian Mecar anti-tank rifle grenades.
The Israeli Army uses the FN FAL as both its standard rifle and (in its heavy-barrelled form) as its squad automatic weapon. This gives the riflemen the ability to maintain their firepower on the move and deliver intense bursts of fire at short range.
