Description

The Magach 6R was a major modification compared to previous Magach 6s, featuring the same Blazer ERA but including a new AVDS-1790-2AG engine, with more electric power output when compared to the previous AVDS-1790-2A. Later modifications included the Magach 6R*, that prepared the vehicle to use the Nachal Oz fire control system.

It was introduced in Update "Drone Age". The Magach 6R is very similar to other Magach 6 tanks in the Israeli Tech Tree, it features Blazer ERA, subpar protection against APDS and APFSDS shells, and above average mobility and agility. The tank features a competent 105 mm cannon and a stabilizer but lacks access to a thermal sight. It does however have a large amount of smoke launchers and grenades, so it can use them to cover allied movements or to escape from situations with ease.

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in a bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

Cons:

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
