Introduces New Flattop Configurations for TAVOR and X95, and New NATO Cartridge Configurations for ACE Family

 

Ramat Ha'Sharon, Israel | Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) – a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for governments, armies, and law enforcement agencies around the world – will present for the first time, its expanded portfolio of assault rifles, at Eurosatory 2012, June 11-15, Paris, Israel Pavilion, Hall 6 at Booth # CD690. Among the company's expanded offerings are new Flattop configurations for TAVOR and X95 assault rifles, and new NATO cartridge configurations for the ACE Family (ACE N).

 

IWI's new flattop configurations enable the attachment of all types of day and night optics and additional accessories, as required. Developed in response to client requests, the weapons have all been sold and in use by customers around the world. IWI will also introduce the ACE N, which fits the NATO cartridge, developed in response to market demands.

The X95 can be used as an Assault Rifle, Carbine, or Submachine Gun (SMG). Designed for Military, Law Enforcement and Special Forces, the X95 was developed in close cooperation with elite units and tailored to their specific requirements. Created to deal with modern terror threats, as well as urban and open area combat - all in one mission - the X95 is the standard Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Assault Rifle. Exceptionally reliable in even the harshest weather conditions, and combat-proven by many police and armed forces around the world, the X95 complies with the most stringent NATO standards for small arms, including environmental standards. Incorporating advanced technology that allows the conversion from 5.56mm caliber to 9mm caliber and vice versa within minutes, Special Ops can use the same weapon platform for a wide array of scenarios, thus saving training time and spare parts, and reducing overall costs.

 

The TAVOR 5.56mm Family of Assault Rifles are versatile, innovative, and technologically advanced weapons that have been extensively proven on the battlefield, performing with precision and reliability, and meeting the needs of human ergonomics. The TAVOR family was also developed in close cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), based on lessons learned from actual combat. Complying with the most stringent NATO standards for small arms - including environmental standards and harsh conditions - the TAVOR is in service in the IDF Infantry and Special Forces as well as in other countries throughout the world. It has a bull pup configuration, a barrel length and weapon size that cover all soldier's fighting ranges - from 500 meters to indoor operations, fighting from vehicles, urban areas, etc. Among its additional features, the TAVOR's body is made of strong, modern composite materials, and its metal parts are corrosion-resistant. It maintains zeroing at all times, even when converting from day optics to night optics, and can be comfortably used by either left or right-handed shooters.

 

The ACE Family of 5.56mm and 7.62mm caliber Assault Rifles are based on the exceptionally reliable mechanism of the very successful GALIL Assault Rifle. Blending enhanced human engineering and ergonomics with the demands of the modern battlefield - and providing both automatic and semi-automatic fire modes - the ACE has been extensively battle proven under the most extreme conditions, worldwide. The rifle comes in three barrel lengths. Its 4 Picatinny rails act as a platform to mount a wide array of optical devices and other accessories. Air cooled and gas operated, the rifles are easy to use by right or left-handed users, are simple to maintain without special tools, and include night sights and telescopic and/or foldable butts.

 

According to Uri Amit, IWI's CEO, "We are pleased to introduce a variety of new configurations that expand our portfolio of solutions in the area of assault rifles. We continuously invest in the development of new products, working together with our customers and developing the best possible weapons to meet their needs. We will be displaying our entire line of products at Eurosatory, and invite attendees to visit our booth."
