The Defense Ministry stated that the APC, dubbed Eitan, is a very advanced APC with various capabilities in the battlefield. The Eitan will be the most advanced and protected wheeled APC in the world. The Eitan APCs will have an active defense system, similar to the defense system on the Namer APC, and other special defense systems.

The major advantages of the Eitan APCs are that they can deal with the different and difficult terrain of the various battle zones and travel on roads, meaning that they do not need a special military truck to carry them.
