Israel ordered the construction of three new non-nuclear submarines in Germany, an agreement was signed with the German shipbuilding association thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (TKMS). This was reported by the press service of the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

Germany's TKMS will build three new non-nuclear submarines for Israel. The agreement, signed on January 20, 2022 in Tel Aviv, provides for the construction of three submarines of the new Dakar project, which in the future will replace the first three Dolphin-class submarines also built in Germany. To date, the Israeli Navy has five submarines of the Dolphin project, and the sixth is still under construction. Despite this, Tel Aviv decided to replace the first three submarines.

The arrival of the first non-nuclear submarine of the new Dakar project is planned as early as 2031. As stated in TKMS, the new submarines will have a different design, designed to meet the requirements of Israel. The contract worth $3,4 billion also provides for the supply of a special simulator for training submariners and the further supply of spare parts for submarines.

The Israel Submarine Force includes six submarines, of which five are in service. The first three large diesel-electric submarines of the Dolphin type were commissioned in 1999-2000, and the command of the Israeli Navy plans to replace them with new Dakar project nuclear submarines.

In addition, the Navy has two modified submarines of the Dolphin 2 project. They differ from the previous version in their large size and the presence of a German-type air-independent power plant based on Siemens-type fuel cells. They joined the fleet in 2014-2016. Another Dolphin 2 submarine is due to enter the fleet in 2023. It is worth noting that all submarines were built and are being built in Germany.

      At sea, in the air and on land.
      Wherever there is a need to defend the State of Israel.

          Jul 31 2021 - On Friday, Iran hit an oil tanker linked to Israel, near Oman, killing two crew members on board.

    in 1965 Israel bought three T-class submarines from the UK.
    In the Israeli Navy, they received the names Tsade-75 "Livyatan" (formerly Turpin, launched on August 5, 1945), Tsade-77 "Dakar" (formerly Totem, launched on September 28, 1943) and Tsade-79 "Dolphin" (ex Truncheon, launched 22 February 1944).
    The submarine "Livyatan" arrived in Israel on July 12.07.67, 1978 and was scrapped in XNUMX.
    "Dolphin" arrived on 05.02.68/1977/XNUMX, sent for scrap in XNUMX.
    The submarine "Dakar" died under unclear circumstances on 25.01.68/XNUMX/XNUMX during the transition from Portsmouth to Haifa,

    For the first time, the new submarines will have vertical silos for launching missiles.

      Yes, but they won't arrive until the end of the decade. Just to replace the first three Dolphins.

    I don't see clearly who will pay for them. Israel, or in 2/3 Germany itself, as with "Dolphin" - as compensation for the Holocaust?

      Total cost 3 billion euros
      Israel pays 2,4 billion euros
      Germany 600 million euros.
      And in order to compensate for the price increase, an agreement was signed that includes the supply of Israeli military products to Germany in the amount of about 850 million euros. As part of the deal, a training center and a submarine control simulator will also be created in Israel.

    https://www.ndr.de/nachrichten/schleswig-holstein/... From German: "... With a length of more than 80 meters (!) The new boats of the so-called Dakar class will become the largest submarines ever or built in Germany. https://www.militaeraktuell.at/ "Currently, submarines with a displacement of 2800 and more than 3000 tons are being developed in the design department." It looks like the "Dakar" series is already an ocean-going submarine and it is much larger than the German-Norwegian Tipe 212CD, 73-75 m long, according to available sources.

    On specialized English-language resources, they expressed the opinion that the Dakar class is based on the type 216 modified to meet the requirements of Israel and a more modern design. "...Size and look are quite close to submarine type proposed to Australia: Type 216. Fits also the price tag of 1 billion Euro for each boat . Imagine TKMS showed Israel military officers some drawings during developed Type 216. That smells like a lot of work has already been done." "... The size and appearance are quite close to the type of submarine proposed by Australia - Type 216. It also corresponds to a price tag of 1 billion euros for each submarine. It can be assumed that TKMS showed some drawings to the Israeli military during the development of Type 216. It makes you think that a lot of work has already been done.” Estimated underwater displacement of 3400-3750 tons and at least two vertical universal VMPLs (“Vertical Multi-Purpose Lock”) with a diameter of 2.5 m for 6-7 missiles each.
