The Kasman is short for - Kesem ha mangina, hebrew for - 'the magic of music'.
this model was a very fast, short term solution for rising threats in south Lebanon, where the soldiers were not protected
enough in the M113's. It consisted of two armored plates, left and right of the soldiers hatch and an all round armor plate
for the commanders hatch.
The mark 2, depicted here, was a further armoring of the commanders hatch, closing it from above with a second hatch.
Although this wasn't a permanent solution and many better apc's came out since, the Kasman can still be seen serving the
IDF bravely. Please comment me, and have a look at it from all sides, I've put in more effort then normally.
