Photo Of The Day and we have a cool picture above of Nigerian Navy sailors that participate in a visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) exercise aboard the Expeditionary Sea Base USS Hershel “Woody” Williams (ESB 4) earlier in August 2021. As you can see, they are using the Israeli Tavor bullpup rifle, which is designed and produced by Israel Weapon Industries (IWI). These barrels look really short, so I’m guessing they are using the Tavor CTAR Integral, with Mepro 21 day-night self-illuminated reflex sights.
The USS “Woody” Williams is on a scheduled deployment in the U.S. Sixth Fleet area of operations, to support of U.S. national interests and security in Europe and Africa.
The Tavor CTAR Integral is a 5.56x45mm rifle with a 380mm barrel length.
For some more Tavor please check the ” Suppressed IWI Tavor and B&T APC9” and “Tavor And Galil Rifles Plus Jericho Pistols Come to Senegal” articles.
