On May 2, 2022, the Army Recognition editorial team reported that Elbit Systems won the Light Tank Acquisition Project of the Philippine Army. They will supply ASCOD 2 platforms in different configurations: 18 tracked light tanks, 10 wheeled light tanks(based on the Pandur II), 1 command vehicle, and 1 recovery vehicle. (144 ASCOD Sabrah Light tanks originally planned).

The concept of the Sabrah light tank was also presented in June 2022 during Eurosatory, an international defense exhibition that was held in Paris, France.

The Sabrah is one of the first light tanks in the world available in the current military market. It was fully designed by the Israeli company Elbit Systems based on the tracked ASCOD AFV (Armored Fighting Vehicle) platform, which is manufactured by General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS).

Weighing 30t, the Sabrah light tank series has a modular design. It is equipped with a common 105mm manned turret for both tracked and wheeled configurations. The vehicle’s fully-electric turret drive provides stabilization in both elevation and traverse. The dual-axis high-performance turret provides hunter-killer capability. The tank provides an optimal combination of firepower and maneuverability. It can be configured to provide enhanced lethality.

The Sabrah is fitted with armor protection systems to provide ballistic protection up to NATO STANAG 4569 Level 4. The vehicle can be integrated with active protection systems. It includes the company’s Torch-XTM battle management system. The combat-proven armored vehicle is also installed with electro-optical (EO) sights, fire control systems, and life support systems.
