    Howdy Engineer; I don't know where the three Saar 5's where built, but the Saar 4's and 4.5's where built in Israeli shipyards. Technical Data - Lahav Class Saar 5 Length 85.6 meters Beam 10.3 meters Displacement full load 1062 tons Maximum Speed 33 knots (approximate) Propulsion 1 diesel engine and 2 gas turbine engines Weapon systems 8 improved Gabriel sea-to-sea missiles 8 Harpoon sea-to-sea missiles 64 Barak missiles 76 and 25 mm guns Torpedo Uniform command, control and automation systems Crew 62 (including air crew) It looks like most of the armament and electronics onboard are not American in origin except for the Harpoon missles and perhaps the 25 mm. (Vulcan?) I don't why Hollingsworth wants to have "military parity" in the Middle East unless he wants to see Israel destroyed. Somebody should inform him that Israel's military superiority is the only reason why Israel has managed to survive for the past 58 years.
