The Mirage IV RJ was a ground attack version of the Mirage IV A bomber, made specially for Israel.
Israel ordered 12 of them in 1964, but the french embargo of 1967 killed the project.
It could carry 10x500kg bombs, or 4/5xAS.30 missiles.

Thanks for the tip.
Chappy was in my IDF army list, but I had failed to get the nickname. It's always better when a unit as a local name.
I'm adding it to my list ...

Inside the Hummer? Or on top of it?
The latter would provide us with a VBL Mistral-like unit ... if in-timeframe.
In the 1970s/1980s the Israelis decided to transform some of their Tiran to optimize them. Two types of prototypes were developed: the first was the Samovar 1 which had improvements of Merkava. So the canon was changed to that of the Merkava II, and it received a small wire-mesh basket on the side of the turret and in tests he received even from small short skirts in reactive bricks.
Samovar 2, the second version of the Samovar, was less developed and pushed less than the previous. Of note is a significant change in the back of the turret as well as an important change of engine which translates visuellemet by a more square crate back.
Tiran Blazer is a Tiran 5 version developed for a number of significant gear. Changes are mainly to the addition of brick reactive same ideology (but completely different in design and form) of those present on the Mágach or well yet the Sho't Kal Dalet.
