Golani to Receive Tavor Rifle

The IDF is widening the use of the Israeli-made Tavor rifle and phasing out the American M-16 in its infantry units.

The Tavor was first assimilated successfully into the Givati Brigade, and beginning in August 2008, Golani's basic trainees will also receive the Israeli gun.

The rifle is made by the Israel Weapons Industries and is used by the elite military units in both India and Thailand.
