Israel shipyards delivered a Shaldag MK V patrol ship to the Senegalese Navy last week. It was the last vessel delivered as part of an agreement for the supply of four patrol ships to the West African country.

As reported by Israel Defense, the agreement was signed in November 2019 for the supply of three Shaldag MK II patrol Ships and one Shaldag MK V. The agreement also includes personnel training, maintenance and technical support. The first two ships were delivered last year and the third was delivered at the end of this summer. The Shaldag MK V is intended for use in remote and deep-water areas in Senegal's exclusive economic zone (EEZ).
