But the first UZIs had a lug for a bayonet and were provided to the IDF soldiers with a bayonet, but I ignore what was the extend of them in the army.
BTW, the bayonet is also useful because it is dissuasive as it is simply frightening. It could be an extra for IDF soldiers positioned at road blocks for example. Anyway, I think the Tavor has no lug for a bayonet.
I admire the IDF but not blindly so. This is an area in which they are simply wrong, both from the tactical and psychological PsOV, IMO.
I'm pretty certain that the platoon of Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders who, heavily outnumbered and down to their literal last rounds, cut their way out of an ambush with a screaming bayonet charge in '05 were plenty glad to be both equipped to fix bayonets and trained to use them in battle.
Sidebar: The assault rifle to which the bayonets were affixed was the L85A2, a bullpup design similar in size & configuration to the standard-barreled Tavor.
