The ships feature a stealthy design of a low-signature missile corvette and are equipped with custom solutions and new technologies.

In May 2015, the contract for four SA’AR 6 corvettes was signed, where thyssenkrupp Marine Systems would be the lead and the German Naval Yards is the project partner.

In February 2018, the construction phase commenced with the steel cutting ceremony, following the design phase.

The first ship was undocked 15 months after the first steel was cut.

In May last year, the naming ceremony of INS Magen was held. The remaining three ships are scheduled for delivery in the next few months.
