After World War II, a new nation was formed in an area where all its neighbors disapproved of its existence, a new weapon was needed to protect its borders and interests. A Major by the name of Uziel Gal designed a weapon to be more compact than its WW2 counter-parts, cheap to produce due to its use of sheet metals and that it is more ergonomic as reloads became more intuitive, but he had a specific request that the gun should not be named after him. This weapon was known as the UZI.

The UZI is a submachine gun that was made during the 1950s for Israel to replace its stock of WW2 leftover SMGs, it uses an open bolt design yet it is much more compact compared to the WW2 relics as it uses a telescoping bolt and has the magazine housed in the pistol grip, making it quite modern and ergonomic at the time, The Uzi was officially adopted in 1951. First introduced to IDF special forces in 1954, the weapon was placed into general issue two years later. The first Uzis were equipped with a short, fixed wooden buttstock, and this is the version that initially saw combat during the 1956 Suez Campaign. Later models would be equipped with a folding metal stock.
