LOD (BNS): Israel Aerospace Industries' (IAI) Ramta division has won a contract to supply three Dvora Mk Super 3 fast patrol boats to the Israel Navy.

The Super Dvora Mk 3 is used for patrol, and other operations, protection of Israel's coasts and strategic assets at sea and along all of its coasts.

According to IAI, the boats to be provided to the Israel Navy represent the fourth generation of boats of this type, and were developed in close cooperation between IAI and the Israel Navy using lessons learned operationally.

The boats include an advanced propulsion system to allow sharp and quick maneuvering as well as unique speed tailored to various modern threats and are equipped with a variety of combat, detection, defense and attack capabilities.

The current contract is a continuation of a previous order of four ships.

The Super Dvora is considered to be one of the world's most advanced vessels in the fast attack craft category, due to the high speed it is capable of reaching, as well as its advanced detection, navigation, communication capabilities, and precision fire measures.

Currently, the Super Dvora Mk 3 is being evaluated for use in several countries for protection of strategic facilities within their EEZ, and as a countermeasure against any hostile marine activity.
