The Sabra Mk. 2 is a tier 7 premium MBT from Israel. Based on the M60A3, the Sabra Mk. 2 is an upgrade package that includes reinforced armor, a more powerful engine with increased mobility, and a 120mm gun.  Although designed by Israel, the design was also purchased by Turkey to upgrade their aging fleet of M60 tanks. About 170 vehicles were produced between 2007 and 2009.

The Sabra Mk. 2 was originally sold with the Marder 2 during the Black Friday sale on the Armored Warfare website in November 2017 and comes with a permanent special camo scheme. As of January 2018, the tank is permanently available in the Web Shop for cash or in game gold.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

The Sabra Mk. 2 has a similar play style to the M60-2000, although it trades DPM for higher penetration and greater accuracy. It has a tough turret and a rather weak hull, so playing this tank hull down is the key to success.  If the tank cannot be placed in a hull down position, it should hang back in the second line and provide supporting fire, while minimizing exposure. The Sabra also has a base view range of 420 m, so increasing this with retrofits will allow for better target spotting.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Permanently available for gold in the web shop and comes with a level 5 crew.
