Israel Shipyards on Thursday announced an agreement with an African country's naval force for the supply of two OPV 45 offshore patrol vessels.

The vessels were designed for a wide range of missions, including protection against the increasing threat of piracy in the region.

The OPV 45s will be equipped with day/night observation systems as well as stabilized weapon systems.

The agreement includes ongoing support and training of the technical and operational teams as well as the creation of a maintenance program within the framework of the company’s Integration Logistic Support (ILS) services.

The OPV 45 is designed for naval, para-military and HLS missions. It enables open sea patrol and surveillance and supports a wide variety of offshore missions such as the protection of facilities and EEZs, anti-terror/smuggling/illegal activity interdiction, intervention force boarding/landing, close-range naval combat operations, and enhanced search and rescue missions. The OPV 45 can also be equipped for minimizing illegal immigration transits, fishing protection and control, and anti-pollution activities.
