Electronic battlefield - a video of Israel's elite group's latest new toy

Cross posted on Weazel Zipper.
H/T to mererhetoric.

The video audio is in Hebrew and taken from Israelly channel 2 broadcast, but does have English subtitles.

The IDF's elite sayeret matkal unit is getting handheld computers with
live 3D maps of the battleground. It's like walking around a
battlefield with Google Earth, but it's even better because each
soldier has a camera attached to him so that you can see what he is

One note though, I wouldn't want to have a farking terrorist on my site and then have to call headquarters for individual approval to open fire...
