Israel Shipyards Wins Detailed Design Phase for RESHEF-class

All Combat Systems to be Indigenous

Israel Shipyards has signed an agreement for the detailed design phase of the RESHEF-class vessel for the Israeli Navy. The first output, prior to entering the construction phase, will be the presentation of an engineering plan, according to a 26 August company statement.

Intended to replace the 30 year-old SA’AR 4.5-class, the RESHEF is being designed with growth margin built in from the start, to accommodate emerging and as-yet-unknown threats and challenges. Based on Israel Shipyards’ proven S-72 design, the class will offer the Navy the advanced capabilities required for future combat, with all embarked combat systems the product of Israeli defence industry organisations.

Pleased “to have reached this advanced stage in the development of the new ship, which will very soon assist in carrying out the missions and meeting the challenges faced by the Israeli Navy in protecting the country’s maritime borders,” the company’s CEO, Eitan Zucker, went on to add “We welcome the fruitful cooperation with the Ministry of Defense and the Israeli Navy.”
