Israeli Navy adapts patrol boats for new threats

The Israeli Navy's fleet of fast patrol boats is adapting to new roles and threats. Divided into three squadrons, the boats are tasked with defending Israel's Mediterranean coastline - an area that includes two offshore gas-drilling rigs - and blockading the Gaza Strip. The fleet includes Shaldag, Super Dvora Mk I, Mk II, and Mk III fast patrol boats. The last of the service's Dabur-class boats will be decommissioned in April having been in service for around 40 years, according to an Israeli Navy source. [...]

The source revealed that similar attacks had been attempted against Israeli fast patrol boats during Operation 'Protective Edge' in 2014, but none were successful. Operation 'Protective Edge' also saw the navy play a more prominent role in attacking targets in the Gaza Strip using Gil (the Israeli name for the Spike MR) guided missiles.

More of the Super Dvora Mk III boats have now been fitted with Gil launchers in addition to their Rafael Typhoon stabilised mounts with 25 mm guns, a .50 cal M2 Browning heavy machine gun, and two FN MAG machine guns.

Additionally, the navy is equipping its fast patrol boats with underwater charges to deal with the threat of divers, the source said. [...] ... ew-threats

Zitat:Israel looks to buy three new nuke-capable subs – report

German-made Dolphin-class submarines would replace aging boats serving in Israeli Navy since the 1990s

Israel is seeking to buy three more advanced submarines from Germany at a combined price of $1.3 billion, an Israeli newspaper reported Friday. [...] Contacted by AFP, the Defense Ministry declined to comment on the report. Israel already has five of the state-of-the-art German submarines, with a sixth due for delivery in 2017. [...]

“The new submarines are said to be more advanced, longer, and equipped with better accessories,” the newspaper report said.

Israel hat das Design der Sa'ar 6 einer erneuten Anpassung unterzogen. Ein zweiter Iron Dome-Starter soll die Schlagkraft gegen die angewachsene Bedrohung durch Raketen der Hizbollah erhöhen. Die Iron Dome-Raketen sollen dabei gegen "billige", von Land gestartete Raketen eingesetzt werden, während die Barak-8 Flugkörper Hochwertzielen vorbehalten bleiben

Zitat:ELTA to supply MF-STAR radars for Israeli Sa’ar 6-class corvettes

Israel Aerospace Industries’ (IAI) subsidiary ELTA Systems has received a contract to supply four ELM-2248 MF-STAR multi-function digital radars for installation on the Israeli Navy’s new Sa’ar 6-class corvettes.

The radars contract was awarded by the Systems Missiles and Space Group of IAI. The advanced MF-STAR radars, which will be installed on the ship’s masts in a new, box-like antenna configuration, are based on the latest active electronically scanned array (AESA) technology. [...] The MF-STAR was designed from the ground up with innovative and reliable technologies, based on our experience of over half a century of producing and deploying a vast array of radar systems.”

The radar solution being offered by ELTA includes four conformal phased array S-Band antennas providing 360° coverage. [...] Built by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, the Sa’ar 6-class vessels are based on the German MEKO 100 patrol corvette and are expected to offer enhanced attack capabilities.
