Fast Patrol Boats for Israel Navy


Fast Patrol Boats for Israel Navy

Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) and the Israel Ministry of Defense (IMoD) have signed an agreement for the supply of new generation Super Dvora Mk II-I fast patrol boats for the Israel Navy. Under terms of the agreement, the IAI Ramta Division will design and build six of the new generation boats with options to build five additional craft. This acquisition of fast patrol craft is part of the Israel Navy's multi-year procurement plan in which earlier versions of the "Dabur" and "Dvora" class patrol craft will be replaced by the new generation Mark II-I.

The Mark II-I has superior operational capabilities over the boats they replace with higher interception speeds against sea targets, increased operational ranges, inclusion of more advanced weapon systems, and better human engineering and accommodations for the crews.

Super Dvora Mk II

The Israel Navy in conjunction with the IMoD carried out a comprehensive evaluation of the best alternatives to meet navy requirements for its next generation fast patrol craft. Among the alternatives was procurement of the patrol craft in the United States, using US military aid in light of the severe budget constraints in local currency. Parallel to this was a determined effort to identify Israeli currency sources to enable production of the next generation patrol craft in Israel. A detailed feasibility study was undertaken into the cost of purchasing the fast patrol boats in Israel. The results of this study clearly showed that producing the boats in Israel would save over 25% compared to the US procurement option. Production of the initial six Mark II-I fast patrol boats by IAI-Ramta has already begun, and will cover several fiscal years.
