The Sea Arm, together with the Administration for Research, Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure in the Ministry of Defense and the Aerospace Industry, successfully completed in August a complex test of the 'Gabriel 5' type naval missile system. This experiment is another milestone in the process of carrying out the 6th Saari ships.
The Ahi Oz missile ship, the second in the series of defense ships, participated in the test, which was tested for its ability to deal with various threats using new and advanced weapons, including the Gabriel 5 missile.

Gabriel 5 is an advanced long-range sea missile system, capable of flying for hundreds of kilometers, in varying sea and air conditions. The missile's impact enables the thwarting and destruction of a wide variety of targets and threats.
The advanced missiles ensure the relative advantage of the naval arm and the preservation of the IDF's naval superiority, and will be used by the arm in its missions, including the protection of the strategic assets of the State of Israel.
The implementation of the 'Gabriel 5' missile system is a technological breakthrough in the field of defense in the maritime space and is the product of intense, professional, and precise work by the fighters and engineers of the naval arm, in partnership with the Israel Defense Forces and the Aerospace Industry.
Commander of the Naval Arm Lt. Col. Guy Goldfarb said, "The Naval Arm continues to evolve and change in the face of a variety of increasing operational challenges and regional changes. The "Gabriel" naval missile system will strengthen the operational and defensive capabilities of the naval arm in the maritime space, in a variety of arenas and in a variety of missions. The arm believes in preserving freedom of navigation, preserving the maritime space, the economic waters and the strategic assets of the State of Israel. The strategic depth and naval superiority that the arm provides to the country derives from technological renewal, development and training of people which together lead to operational success." Chief of Staff of the Military Research and Development Administration Tal said, "The system is a technological and operational breakthrough and will enable the naval arm to maintain naval supremacy. "Continue to harness all the technological assets developed in Israel to meet operational needs."
CEO of IAI, Boaz Levy: "IAI is proud of the success of the test carried out with the "Gabriel 5" missile, on top of the advanced Sa'ar 6 ships, and in the close cooperation with the Ministry of Defense and the Navy. The integration of these capabilities on the Sa'ar 6 constitutes a significant leap forward in the field of naval warfare, for the protection of the strategic assets of the State of Israel."
