Israel starts all-female ‘Hummer Operators Unit’
The Israel Army is using an advanced U.S.-origin system to train women soldiers in urban warfare.
The Army has been training women soldiers to operate the Hummer combat vehicle in urban warfare missions. A military statement said the training has been facilitated by the use of the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System, or MILES, developed by Lockheed Martin.
“The training they provide includes how to drive a Hummer on various surfaces and landscapes, avoiding the enemy line of fire, and operating the Hummer using various systems,” the military said. “The IDF’s Hummer Operators Unit is the only all-female unit of Hummer operators in any army in the world.”
