The boxes are filled with "interactive armor" according to the Twitter poster. I guess that means NERA...

Israel don't heve ERA, so maybe upgrade

 

Israel has had ERA-tech for decades (calling the first generation of it 'Blazer;) and they used it on older tanks like the M48.  They haven't put such armor on the Merkava as it has not needed it, but they do have the tech if they or a customer needs it.

 

He knows that, in fact I'm sure he knows that Israel led the world in the employment of ERA.  So I'm not sure what he was trying to convey unless he was trying to say that the IDF has gone away from using ERA on their tanks.  Which is true.

 

Uhhh... In short, nope. Not singlehandedly, at the very least.

It is quite clear that the Israelis were the first to implement ERA. They were not the first to conceive it. The Soviet Union was. Rafael, the Israeli armament development authority, was researching ERA well before it was introduced. However, they were examining technological dead ends. They needed Held.

Exactly. Not that I'd in any way diminish Israel's achievement. (EDIT: Oh shit, sorry, I was, having misread deployment for development. Still, I hope someone will find the link I posted above interesting :P ):

Being the first to implement such a risky-seeming tech on a vehicle is an achievement in, on and of its own, especially if you're a young country; more even, if said country is the size of Israel.

Actually being a small young country surrounded by enemies made them take risks to gain any advantage they could get that others shied away. imho
