Israel Navy signs for Super Dvora fast patrol boats
Israel Aerospace Industries' (IAI) Ramta division will supply three Super Dvora Mk 3 fast patrol boats to the Israel Navy under a new contract announced on 29 September.
The Israel Navy will use the boats for patrol, protection of Israel's coasts and strategic assets at sea and along its coasts, prevention of terrorist activities and infiltration, as well as preventing smuggling and all illegal activity in Israel's Exclusive Economic Zone.
Joseph Weiss, president & CEO, IAI, said: ‘IAI's commitment to the Israel Navy is amongst the deepest of Israeli and international defence industries. We feel great pride and a sense of mission by being given the opportunity to contribute to the safety of Israel. Signing this contract strengthens and establishes IAI's position with the world's leading companies in the design and manufacture of vessels for missions which require strong operational capabilities as well as uncompromising reliability.’
According to IAI, the Super Dvora Mk 3 was developed in close cooperation with the Israel Navy using lessons learned operationally. The boat is designed with an advanced propulsion system to allow sharp and quick manoeuvring, and is equipped with a variety of combat, detection, defence and attack capabilities.
