IAF Tavor-21 assault rifles ammunition contract goes to BAE systems


The Indian Air Force (IAF) acquired 1.41 million rounds of 5.56 mm L15 NATO ammunition from BAE Systems for USD 744, 400 in June for the Israeli Tavor-21 assault rifles used by its Garud Special Forces. BAE Systems was competing against Israel Weapon Industries, Italy’s Fiocchi Munizious, Spain’s Expal, and US firm BEL Trading & Consulting for the 5.56 mm ammunition tender.

Official sources said additional 5.56 mm ammunition orders are expected from the Indian Army special forces and the Indian Navy’s Marine Commandos, both of which operate Tavor-21 rifles.
