In December 2020 the Israeli Navy will receive the Sa'ar-6 class "Magen" warship, the first from a shipyard in Germany. Three additional Sa'ar-6 ships are to be delivered in the next two years. AP News reported that in 2015 the Israeli Defense Ministry ordered from the ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems company four Sa'ar-6 class ships, corvettes built with stealth technology to make the ships difficult to detect by radar.
It is a technology based on a combination of radar, sonar and infrared. The ship is 90 meters long and 13.2 meters wide with a displacement of 2,000 tons. World Defense News reports that the Sa'ar-6 is armed with an Oto Melara 70mm cannon, two Typhoon Weapon Stations, 16 launchers for Barak 8 missiles, 40 cells for defense systems, 16 sea-to-sea missiles, EL/M-2448 radar and two 324mm torpedo launchers. The ship also has a platform for SH-60 helicopters.
