The Israeli Navy and Defense Ministry tested a new sea-to-sea missile off the Israeli coast earlier this month, paving the way for their full use on navy corvettes, the military said Friday.

“This system is meant to ensure the naval superiority of the [Sea Corps],” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

The missile system — whose name has not been released — was developed by Israeli Aerospace Industries and was tested by the Navy and the Defense Ministry’s Weapons Development and Technology Infrastructure Administration, known by its Hebrew acronym MAFAT.

“The new missile system has more accurate attack capabilities, abilities to reach farther distances, improved attack flexibility and is better able to handle the advanced threats it is facing,” the IDF said.
