The British Centurion was named "Sh'ot" by the Israelis and upgraded to meet their demands in modern warfare. However, after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 and the Lebanese resistance operations against them in 1984,a new version of the "Sh'ot" named "Nagmash'ot" (troop carrier), appeared in service in the Israeli army. It consisted of a turretless, well-armored vehicle with tasks to assist infantry troops in Lebanon during the Israeli occupation of Southern Lebanon. The "Nagmash'ot" was constantly upgraded to meet challenges, and is known as the moving fortress.
