Nakpadon or Nikpadon is an Israeli heavy armored personnel carrier (HAPC) based on the Centurion-derived Nagmachon. The creation and development of the Nakpadon started during fighting in Lebanon. It was first introduced during the late 1990s, and it has since served in southern Lebanon, Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza region.
Armor: Improvements over the Nagmashot include 3rd generation reactive armor and "EKE" side skirts with rear skirts that can be raised or lowered.
Armament: The Nakpadon carries four FN MAG machine guns and a 40mm grenade launcher.
