Stupid Jews: Israel upgrades Turkish tanks

Israel has completed the upgrade of 170 40-year old Turkish tanks to the state of the art (Hat Tip: Shy Guy).
The last of the tanks, model M60A1, was delivered to Turkey this week, completing the program jointly carried out by the Turkish Defense Ministry, Israel Aircraft Industries and Elbit Systems.

The program was the largest of its kind in the world, and the tanks are now equivalent to the highest-level tanks in the world.

The nearly-$700 million deal was signed in March 2002. It is not clear if the successful conclusion of the project will lead to better ties between Turkey and Israel, or perhaps Turkey's new-found lack of dependency upon Israel will lead it further towards Islamic extremists.

Turkey’s M60A1 tanks started out as 40-year-old American armored vehicles, but now boast state-of-the-art weapons systems that combine the best of tankionics, fire power, sensors, and more.
What's Turkey going to do in return - lend them to Syria?

What could go wrong?

They might even initiate their own invasion into Israel. Why not?

If Israel was that smart, they probably installed a "kill switch" Heh.

No Carl.
Sending the whole tank and technology to Iran.

I have no doubt that Elbit put a little something "extra" in those tanks so if they end up in Syria, they won't be what the Turks thought they were buying.

Turkey, being in NATO will act reluctantly in the case of proliferation of military equipment to Israels ememies.

Given Turkey's visceral hostility towards Israel, I'm quite surprised Israel did that upgrade.

What the hell where they thinking?
