The Eilat class Sa'ar 5 corvette became part of the Israeli Navy after the Israeli Navy contracted with Northrop Gruman Ship Systems to supply three ships. Israel launched the first Eilat class ship in February 1993, followed by the second in August 1993, and the third in March 1994. The three Eilat class corvettes currently in service are the INS Eilat, the INS Lahav, and the INS Hanit.

Weapon Systems
The Eilat class corvette is equipped with three types of missile systems: Barak, Harpoon, and Gabriel II. The Barak missile system was developed by Israeli Air Industries and Rafael, and has both anti-air and anti-surface capability. The Barak missile is vertically launched from two cells in the ship's bow and has a maximum range of 10 km.



The Eilat class corvette can be equipped with either an OTO Melara 3 76 mm main gun, a Bofors 57 mm gun, or a Vulcan Phalanx Mk 15 25 mm CIWS weapon system. The Eilat class corvette contains six 324 mm torpedo tubes mounted midway along the length of the ship, each tube can hold one Alliant Techsystems Mark 46 torpedo. The ship can also has one helicopter hanger capable of holding an H-665 Dauphin, a Kaman SH-2F, or a Sikorsky S-76N.

Wow looks really advanced, I wonder what ship its based on. It looks like its based on the Visby, but that would be weird since the Visby came out only a couple of years ago. And this warship came before it. I'll try and find some info on the visby program guys.

The Horizon Common New Generation Frigate (CNGF) is a multi-nationial collaboration to produce a new generation of anti-air warfare frigates. It is named Orizzonte in Italian and Horizon in French.

France, Italy and the UK issued a joint requirement in 1992 after the failure of the NATO Frigate Replacement (NFR-90) project. The resulting CNGF program consisted of the Horizon frigate and its Principle Anti Air Missile System (PAAMS.)

Wow the PAAMS missile system is suppose to be one of the best! I can't wait till this ship comes out. Right now only Italy, and France are acutally buying these ships, two for each country so far.

Currently the worlds largest military ship, excluding carriers and support vessels. The Kirov is also the best lookling out of all the other military craft in the world




Didn't they get scraped because the Russians couldn't afford 2 keep em running? I luved it 2. [runs off crying, and punches dog]


The Kirov cruiser represents exactly what I have said about the Soviets/Russians;
-equipment looks good, scary, even beautiful, but in reality it is impractical, and not battle worthy. I will explain; this behelmoth is a beauty with racing yaught lines, and supersonic sea skimming missiles, and about every other naval weapon the Russians could think of that would fit on her hull. She (Kirov class) has a huge radar signature (unlike the stealth DDX in the USN), requires off board targeting to get to use her wonderful fast missiles, is detectable from hundreds of miles away and thousands by satellite, as much as a carrier, but has no long range air defense like the carrier, other than missiles. And her "SA-6/10 Grumble" missiles don't have the range of the US SM-2 block 3/4, or SM-3 ABM, not to mention the lack of any sort of phased array radar. She is a beautiful, powerful looking ship that any 10th grader could have thought up, with no clear mission or real capability. Better to spend the money on reproducing a Nimitz Class carrier. Russian Kirov has no usable capability, is costly, has limited mission capability and no mission flexibility, but darn if it doesn't look good, and real scary to the uneducated in naval warfare. (Unless, I suppose, you think this thing is going to approach a Nimitz class carrier unharmed to get within missile range,which is unrealistic at best. I would imagine several hundred attacks could be made starting with a coupld dozen HARMs, coordinated with Harpoons, Maverics, Standard ARMs, JDAMs, JASSMs, Tommahawks from Subs, and then to finish her off, laser guided bombs) This thing is nothing but a target that would be easy to find. I am sure the leaders of most third world countries would be impressed. Now a REAL warship would be the RN Type-45, or the USN DDX, both of which are breaking new ground and will revolutionize naval warfare for the next two decades at least. That is the future and what will dominate the oceans.
