TKMS Cut 1st Steel of First Israeli Navy Sa'ar 6 Corvette

The steel cutting ceremony for the first Saar 6 (Sa'ar 6) corvette ordered by Israel at the ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) shipyard in Kiel, Germany on February 7, 2018. The low key ceremony (no media representatives were admitted) took place in presence of the chief of the Israeli Navy, Admiral Eli Sharvit, and German Navy inspector Vice-admiral Andreas Krause.

Speaking during the Israel Air Force ceremony on December 25th 2014, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Israel ordered four new patrol vessels from Germany: "Today, I am pleased to announce that three days ago, we added an important component to our defensive force. We purchased four new Saar vessels from Germany". The Israeli Ministry of Defense completed in May 2015 the negotiations for purchase the vessels. The main goal of this new procurement is the protection of Israel's Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ) where oil and gas production is booming in the sea off west coast of the country.

The cost of the construction is around 430 million euros of which 115 million euros is reportedly covered by the government of Germany. This is for the four vessels but the vessels only, without the cost of Israeli weapons and electronic equipment, which will be installed in Israel.  The first corvette should be transferred to the Israeli side at the end of 2019, and the fourth and last one at the end of 2021. All four ships are set to be incorporated into the Israeli Navy in 2020-2022 after the installation of Israeli armament and electronic equipment (however, less optimistic forecasts predict that the first ship will actually be commissioned not earlier than mid-end of 2021). The total cost of the program for the acquisition of these ships is estimated at $ 3 billion in Israel.

The Saar 6 class was developed from the German MEKO A100 base (and variations for the German Navy K130 corvettes). The Saar 6 vessels will not just be "Patrol Vessels" as initially reported but rather powerful Corvettes with a displacement in excess of 2,000 tons and a length of 90 meters.The width of the class is 13.5 meters and its draft is more than 4 meters. Their maximum speed is 26 knots thanks to their diesel power plant and dual-shaft arrangement. The crew complement is about 70 sailors.

Saar 6 class corvettes will be heavily armed for their size: They are set to be fitted with:
- 32x VLS cells for Barak 8 surface to air missile system by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)
- 2x C-DOME naval point defense system launchers by Rafael (20x Tamir missiles in each launcher for a total of 40x per ship)
- 16x anti-ship missiles (Boeing Harpoon Block 2 or Israel's IAI Gabriel Mk 5)
- 1x 76mm Oto Melara Super Rapid main gun
- 2x Typhoon 25mm remote weapon stations by Rafael (likely able to launch Spike-ER missiles as well)
- 2x 324mm torpedo launchers for MK54 Lightweight Torpedo by Raytheon

The main sensor system aboard the Saar 6 will be the MF-STAR multifunction AESA radar by IAI. Saar 6 corvettes will have hangar space and platform able to accommodate a medium class (SH-60 type) helicopter.

About C-Dome
C-DOME is the naval variant of Iron Dome unveiled by Rafael at Euronaval 2014. C-DOME is a Naval Point Defense System from a ship VLS at sea.

Rafael's C-DOME is designed to effectively protect combat vessels against a large set of modern threats. C-Dome handles saturation attacks by engaging multiple targets simultaneously. Reaction time is very short and enables automatic and semi-automatic engagements. C-Dome components include a multi-round launcher assembly loaded with vertically-launched canisterised interceptors. The launcher is installed under the ship deck.

About Barak 8
According to Israel defense company IAI, Barak-8 is an advanced groundbreaking air and missile defense system that provides ultimate protection against a variety of aerial platforms, both land and naval scenarios. It is designed jointly with the DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organization) in India and is used by the IDF and the Indian defense forces. The system includes an advanced Phased Array digital radar, command and control, vertical launchers and missiles carrying a highly advanced seeker.

The MF-STAR antenna includes four fixed faces of active arrays in S-band frequency, delivering a high-quality air and surface situation picture and weapon support – particularly in severely cluttered target, electronic, topographical and environmental conditions. With advanced technology and robust system architecture, the MF-STAR employs unique, proven multi-beam and pulse doppler techniques to extract low RCS targets from complex clutter and jamming environments.

Moreover, the MF-STAR radar can be easily scaled to fit different requirements and different ship sizes – from 1200-tonne corvettes to frigate/destroyers weighing 7000+ tons.

Aangezien hier zo veel om te doen is, het een interessante strijd is die ook politieke lagen kent verdient de Belgische vervanger een apart topic. Zo houden we het wat overzichtelijker. Om in te gaan op de inhoudelijke opmerking van Jurrien.. ja misschien is het handig drie verschillende topics te maken, voor ieder Belgisch krijgsmachtsdeel 1.

Yeey, 2 topics voor Belgie. Deze kan gewijd worden aan de vervanging van de Belgische F-16's.
Aan een modje om even alle zooi hierover in het Belgie topic hierin te plaatsen.

France to Launch Studies on Charles de Gaulle Aircraft Carrier Replacement

France is set to launch studies on the replacement of the sole aircraft carrier of the French Navy (Marine Nationale). The Charles de Gaulle will be decommissioned by 2040, according to the 2019-2025 military planning law which will be presented tomorrow in the ministerial council.

Naval Group (Formerly DCNS) Evolved Aircraft Carrier (DEAC). This design could serve as a base for the (yet to be started) Charles de Gaulle    aircraft carrier replacement programme. This design is also being offered to India.

"We reserve the possibility of having an aircraft carrier at the same time as the Charles de Gaulle or after" a source close to the Minister of Armed Forces Florence Parly told AFP.

According to AFP, France plans to allocate 295 billion euros to its military between 2019 and 2025, with the objective of increasing defense spending to 2% of GDP in 2025, according to the draft military programming law to be presented tomorrow in the ministerial council.The French defense budget, of 34.2 billion euros in 2018, will benefit of a 1.7 billion euros increase per year until 2022, followed by increments of 3 billion per year from of 2023, after the next presidential election, according to the future military planning law.

Navy Recognition understands that both the French Navy and Naval Group (formerly DCNS) were hopefull for new aircraft carrier studies to be funded as early as possible because there is a very slim window of opportunity: If studies were/are funded between the end of 2017 and the end of 2018, there is a chance for the potential "Charles de Gaulle replacement" to be ready in time for the next refit of Charles de Gaulle. France's sole aircraft carrier is currently undergoing its mid-life refit. Refits are scheduled every 7 years on average. For comparison, the Royal Navy's HMS Queen Elizabeth first steel cut took place in July 2009, she was launched in July 2014 and started sea trials in June 2017.

As we reported several times in the past, France's future aircraft carrier (if funded and built) will feature EMALS by General Atomics. Discussions between DGA, the French Navy, Naval Group and General Atomics have been taking place for a while now and are still ongoing. The French Navy was even briefed by NAVAIR on both EMALS and AAG at the test facility in Lakehurst last summer.

More recently, during the SNA 2018 tradeshow held in Washington D.C. in January, Navy Recognition learned that the French Navy has been briefed on E-2D Advanced Hawkeye by Northrop Grumman. We contacted a French Navy PAO who confirmed to us that procurement of E-2Ds is being considered as part of the 2019-2025 military planning law. The French Navy Naval Aviation currently deploys three E-2C Hawkeyes acquired in 1998, 1999 and 2004.
Ability of foreign fighters to enter Europe undetected indicates heightened risk of multi-site mass-casualty attacks in 2018

Kit Nicholl - IHS Jane's Intelligence Weekly
05 February 2018

Key Points
Islamist militants intent on engaging in terrorist activity are likely to seek to enter Europe without being detected via late-night boat landings in remote areas, or by taking convoluted routes, and changing their identity on the way.
Networks including foreign fighters are likely to attempt sophisticated, multi-site attacks against shopping malls, transport hubs such as main train stations or airports, or major events taking place at large arenas, stadiums, or concert halls. The likelihood of VBIEDs being successfully deployed would also increase.
Heightened short-term risk of impromptu low-capability attacks on Italian soil following Interpol’s identification of suspects.
On 31 January, the UK newspaper The Guardian exclusively reported that Interpol had circulated a list of 50 Tunisian suspected Islamic State foreign fighters who had arrived recently in Italy, some of whom may be intending to travel on to other European countries.

Suspected Islamic State fighters are thought to have arrived on small vessels, on a beach near Agrigento in Sicily. The Interpol list of suspects was originally sent to Italy’s interior ministry, after which it was distributed to European national counterterrorism-terrorism (CT) agencies. Patrolling the entirety of Sicily’s southern coast has proved problematic, with late-night migrant arrivals on beaches near Agrigento particularly prevalent and hard to prevent. This is the most likely route taken by the suspected militants travelling via North Africa.
