The Elbit Flacon was a battery-powered red dot sight developed in the early 1990's to meet the IDF needs. The sight was one of the first military grade red dot sights introduced and a ground breaking optic at the time. The Falcon entered service in the IDF in 1997 and was issued to both SF and regular units. After completing its IDF contract, Elbit seized production of the Falcon. In the early 2000's the Falcon was replaced by modern optics including the Meprolight Mepro 21 and the ITL MARS.

In the IDF the Falcon was mounted on M16A1/CAR15 handguards via a custom designed double-clamp quick-attach adapter made by ARMS. Later, a flattop adapter was made for the M4A1.

Falcon mounted on a CAR15 via two adapters - one fitted n the CAR15 carry handle and the other on the front sight tower. The Falcon in the photo is further secured with a rubber strip to the CAR15 handguards.
