I am not going to use this article to start another ‘Vs.’ thread but I do find it pretty funny how much they jump around on weapon selection. Goes to show that the AR is still a viable platform even when stacked up against more modern designs.(the AK has proven this too).
From the article:
"Israel Defense has learned that the IDF Commando Brigade will replace its current Tavor assault rifles with M4 Carbines.
The brigade has already received the first batch of the new rifles, which will arm both regular servicemen and reservists. The Tavor AR was used in the Egoz and Rimon units.
This move aims to standardize the weapons carried by all warfighters across the brigade. Naturally, the process could take some time."
