Interview with IDF Colonel Saar Tzur, Commander of the 401 Armored Brigade.
No tanks were damaged during Operation Protective Edge, with the Trophy Active Protection system performing over a dozen interceptions of anti-tank weapons including Kornet, Metis and RPG-29. The system, by identifying the source of fire, on occasion also allowed tanks to kill the Hamas anti-tank team.
Giora Katz, head of Rafael’s land division, stated that it was a “breakthrough because it is the first time in military history where an active defense system has proven itself in intense fighting.”[34] During the war, Trophy validated itself in dozens of events, protecting tanks and crews over three weeks of high-threat maneuvering operations in built-up areas without a single hit to defended platforms and zero false alarms”.[35]
Operation “Protective Edge”, July 23rd, 2014.
