TAVOR: The Israeli Rifle That Is The Envy Of The Entire World

Watch me try to talk about the Israel Defense Forces without getting canceled. One of the reasons they’ve switched to the TAR-21 is this rifle has addressed some of the main complaints against the bullpup like the difficulty with awkward reloading. It’s specifically tailored for the kind of close quarters urban narrow street engagements the IDF often find themselves in.

In the Six-Day-War they were way outgunned by five different countries but they still came out victorious. Would another country’s military be able to do the same? Many military historians point to the IDF’s obvious incentive to win these battles has to do with their families living only a few miles away from where they are fighting. With the IDF switching to a Bullpup it means we’re likely to continue seeing these guns for years to come.
