Sensitive Israeli technology is not installed on the ships until they arrive in Israel.
Abu Dhabi MAR group, based in the UAE, has taken control of 80 percent of the German Shipyards Blohm & Voss. This shipyard is currently building two new Dolphin-class submarines for Israel.
Defense officials concerned deal could impact on future procurement of new missile ships from the company. But Israeli technology is secure.
«What we receive from the Germans is a platform» one official explained. «The sensitive technological systems that we wouldn’t want the UAE to know about are installed in Israel».
The design of the warships would be similar to the existing Israeli Sa’ar 5-class ship, but would be slightly larger to enable it to carry the massive IAI-made Adir radar, capable of providing an extensive over-the-horizon view.
The Israel Navy is also in talks with Blohm & Voss about the possible sale of two 2,000-ton missile ships that would be based on the company’s Meko-class warship.
