Syria started taking delivery of the Russian T-54 Medium tank in during the 1950’s and its upgraded version the T-55 in the 1960’s. Egypt also took delivery of the same tanks in the 1960’s and both countries operated them during the 1967 Six-Day War and 1973 Yom Kippur War.

Israel eventually came out victorious in both wars and captured hundreds of T-54 and T-55 from both countries. Prior to the development of the Merkava Main Battle Tank, Israel excelled at the modification of various international tanks with the same 105mm main gun, tracks, ERA armor and engines and renamed them Tiran.
