The Israeli Navy took delivery of its new anti-missile ship, Sa’ar 6 corvette, according to a recent service news release.

“The Israeli Navy welcomed its newest addition, the Sa’ar 6 Corvette, this week,” said in a statement, “Not only is the 2,000-ton ship the Israeli Navy’s most advanced anti-missile ship yet, it will also be equipped with our latest operating systems to thwart any enemy threat.”

The details were given in a 6 November media release, to announce upon arrival, the Israeli Navy will work to make it fully operational by installing defensive systems, of which 90% are Israeli-made.


Also expected that three more ships are set to sail one-by-one all the way from Germany to Israel within the coming year to join the Israeli Navy fleet.

Among the Sa’ar 6 Corvette’s features are shore-to-sea missile interception, steep-trajectory shooting and space to carry mid-sized helicopters such as the Seahawk.
