|Magach 7A (1980's)
Magach 7 is upgraded Magach 6 tanks without the Blazer armour. This upgrade included thick slabs of passive armour added to the turret and hull front, armoured side skirts, new fire control, thermal sleeve for the 105mm gun (as on Magach 6B) and Merkava Mk 1 tracks as on (as on Magach 6B).
The main difference between Magach 7and Magach 6B that the Magach 7 added passive armour and Magach 6B Blazer armour (when the passive armour on Magach 7 gives more protection to the tank than the Blazer armour).
