Includes two Anti-tank jeeps with both Israeli and Jordanian crew
Each infantry battalion in the Israeli Defence Force (or IDF) had an anti-tank platoon, and each brigade an anti-tank company, equipped with either half-tracked anti-tank guns or recoilless anti-tank guns mounted on jeeps. These protected the infantry from enemy tanks, freeing the Israeli tanks to continue the offensive while the infantry mopped up. Such an example of these types vehicles was the Anti-tank Jeep which utilised the American-made M40 106mm recoilless gun.
Jordan also fielded numerous M40 106mm recoilless rifles in a mixture of ground mounted versions to for defensive operations and those mounted on jeeps to provide better mobility. The 106mm was capable of firing a variety of ammunition, including HEAT rounds that could defeat any Israeli armour encountered.
