Hacktoria | Friendly Fire – Write-Up

After a couple of months without a CTF I decided to get my feed wet again. Good thing, that Hacktoria has a lot of challenges for me to solve now. So here is how I was able to solve this one.

So in short, the task is to identify this tank and from which country it is.

Like always it is best to start with the low-hanging fruits. So I simply put this into Google's image search and check the results:

Bingo! First try, and a hot path. Seems like the tank I'm looking at is a Merkava Mk 4m

So it is from Israel. This has everything I need to solve this puzzle.

Everything put correctly in place gives me the reward card. An easy and cool challenge.
