Israeli Navy’s New Submarine ‘Rahav’ Sets Sail
Israeli Navy's latest submarine Rahav

Israeli Navy’s new submarine Rahav set sail from the German port of Kiel.

During the voyage, the Rahav will drop anchor and hold a brief ceremony near the spot where the Israeli submarine "Dakar" sank in 1968. The Rahav, staffed by 50 officers and enlisted men, is the fifth of Israel's Dolphin-class submarines, Debkafile reported Thursday.

It is capable of firing cruise missiles and missiles with nuclear warheads. Each submarine is estimated to cost 500 million euros but a significant part of the cost is provided by the German government. The Rahav was manufactured by German shipyard Howaldtswerke-Deutche Werft.
