The Sa'ar 6 class corvette is based on the MEKO A-100 design from Germany and similar to Germany's Braunschweig-class corvettes. The main reason Israel ordered the 4 corvettes was to protect their EEZ where their Oil and gas fields are. The 1st corvette should be delivered by 2019 with the last by 2021. They will be armed with 1 76mm Oto Melara naval gun, 16 Gabriel MK5 Anti-ship missiles, a 32 VLS for Barak 8, 2 C-Dome naval point defense system (20 missiles per launcher/40x missiles altogether per ship), 2 Typhoon remote weapon stations and 2 torpedo tubes for MK54 Torpedoes. The Sa'ar 6 will also carry a SH-60 Helicopter.
--------------
along with 4 corvettes sold to Israel, the 2 countries agreed to sell 3 more Dolfin class U-Boats. The first of 3 new U-boats will enter service ~2027.
