The German company ThyssenKrupp today (Wednesday) delivered to Israel the Sa'ar 6 missile ship, the Magen, the first ship in the Israeli missile fleet. Delivery took place at a ceremony attended by the commander of the naval force, Gen. Eliyahu Sharvit and the head of the Defense Ministry's procurement division Avi Dadon. During the ceremony, the Israeli flag was hoisted on the new ship.
The navy has purchased four of the Sa'ar 6 craft, including the 'Magen,' the 'Oz,' the 'Atzmaut,' and the 'Nitzahon.' The vessels will be gradually integrated into the naval forces in the coming years.
The first ship to reach the shores of Israel the INS 'Magen', was first launched in May 2019. From the moment the ship arrives in Israel and after completing the process of installing the combat systems, the vast majority of which are made by Israeli industries, Magen will begin its full operational service. The Sa'ar 6 ships will form an integral part of the cornerstones in the IDF's naval defensive wall, as well as a central pillar in the State of Israel's economic water and marine energy defense system.
Commander of the Marine Corps, Gen. Eliyahu Sharvit, said the INS Magen is well-positioned to meet Israel's strategic needs in the naval arena. ""Magen, as well as its sister ships - it is an excellent, accurate, optimal, and versatile product - for the protection of the strategic assets of the State of Israel in its economic waters. This is precisely why we are here today. We excited to hoist the Israeli flag on the head of the Magen's mast, a symbol of an independent, sovereign, secure and prosperous Jewish state. Magen will be armed with the best defense and offensive systems, with combat systems at the forefront of global military technology, the vast majority of which is made by Israeli industry. Today, we send our sailors, soldiers and commanders - to sail the ship, the Corvette, to the port of Haifa. I wish you all - a good and quality voyage, a voyage that is all a combination of history and future. Leave safely, sail safely and enter the home port safely." Sharvit said. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/291063

And?
 
Nasrallah and Erdogan have one wish: to take out Israel's $$$$ gas platforms, which are capable of supplying all of Europe with natural gas for 100 years. These corvettes are designed to protect them.


  • They carry a 76mm gun, 2 Typhoon weapon stations, 32 Barak 60-mile range AA missiles, 20 40-mile range C-Dome missiles (navalised Iron Dome), 16 120-mile range Gabriel anti-ship missiles, 2 torpedo launchers and a Seahawk helicopter.
Medium range interceptor: the BARAK MRAD

That - on paper at least - is packing a pretty serious punch ton-for-ton. A T45 has 48 VLS cells in a ship 3x the size. I know they have very, very different roles but just as a point of comparison.

I see @Maalox is being weird still.

In the league of natural gas reserves, Israel is at number 45 out of 99 countries.
The U.K. is at number 41 out of 99.

Israel is not going to be a major supplier of gas to outside countries anytime soon.

Info here: Natural Gas Reserves by Country - Worldometer

@Maalox : if you are Israel’s internet spokesperson then please can your handlers find someone else? You are a weird fantasist.

SABC to add to your growing collection for trying to big up gas supplies, when you shouldn’t have. Pillock.
