The OPV 62M recently departed from Israel and is expected to arrive in Honduras next month, according to a report by the Honduran newspaper La Prensa.

The ship, named General José Trinidad Cabañas, is equipped with Rafael Spike missiles, a TechMer communications system, and a Terma radar system.

Additionally, the Honduras Navy will receive two more remote-controlled weapon stations for existing vessels from Elbit Systems.
