Azerbaijan’s Coast Guard – a branch of its Border Guard Service - is set to induct its sixth 62m Tufan-class OPV with pennant S-206 shortly.

As is customary, the sixth and final hull built to the Saar 62 design was inspected by Azerbaijan’s leader Ilham Aliyev on 10 January at the Coast Guard’s ship building facility in Turkan where the OPVs and six Shaldag Mk V class fast attack craft have been built since 2014 with technical assistance and material kits supplied by Israel Shipyard Limited (ISL).
