  1. An Israeli Navy (Ḥeil HaYam HaYisraeli) new SA'AR-6 class corvette, likely first ship in class INS Magen, started her initial sea trials on March 10, 2020. Several ship spotters images from the Kiel area in Germany show the vessel underway under her own power. The first SA’AR-6 class corvette was named INS Magen in May 2019. German shipbuilder thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) acts as General Contractor to build four corvettes of this class for the Israeli Navy. SA’AR 6-class corvettes have the stealthy design of a low-signature missile corvette with tailor-made solutions and numerous new technologies on board. The contract for the delivery of four SA’AR 6 corvettes was signed in May 2015. After the design phase, the construction phase started with the steel cutting ceremony of the first-of-class in February 2018. Only 15 months after the first steel cut, the ship was launched, fulfilling its very ambitious schedule. Following the current sea trials campaign, INS Magen is set to be delivered in spring 2020. The other three ships will follow subsequently in intervals of a few months. In terms of weapon systems, the SA’AR 6 features an impressive firepower despite its compact size: an Oto Melara 76 mm main gun, two Typhoon Weapon Stations, 32 vertical launch cells for Barak-8 surface-to-air missiles, the C-Dome point defense system, 16 anti-ship missiles (likely Gabriel V) two 324 mm torpedo launchers The sensor suite includes the EL/M-2248 MF-STAR AESA radar. It has hangar space and a platform able to accommodate a medium class SH-60-type helicopter.
