Israel Aerospace Industries' (IAI) has won a contract to supply three Super Dvora Mk 3 fast patrol boats to the Israeli Navy.

We feel great pride and a sense of mission by being given the opportunity to contribute to the safety of Israel. Signing this contract strengthens and establishes IAI's position with the world's leading companies in the design and manufacture of vessels for missions which require strong operational capabilities as well as uncompromising reliability."
