Might not be such a scoop, but Maariv - Israeli paper today - reveals that Tavor is being used by US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and it's a source of pride to the Israeli weaponry industry. I couldn't find any photos or news reports acknowledging that on the web. (Maariv is a Hebrew news paper, the link will direct you to a Hebrew article)
For more info on Tavor, check out www.israeli-weapons.com:
Here's a cool Discovery Channel show about the weapon:
Did the makers of the sci-fi movie Starship Trooper base their imaginary weapon on the Tavor or did the makers of Tavor "steal" their design from the movie? Just a thought.
(errr... please don't respond - I KNOW IT'S NOT THE TAVOR IN THAT MOVIE... sheesh)
