Many have wondered for years about the exact
capabilities of the subs Germany exports to
Israel.   Now, experts in Germany and Israel
have admitted   Israeli   nuclear tipped missiles
have been deployed on the vessels. Importantly
it seems all German governments have since
early 1990's (during the construction phase),
have long known about nuclear armaments 
being planned to be a part of the Dolphin sub
weapons mix.  Apparently,  the first assembled
submarine cruise missiles was late  1999 at the
earliest around the only known  DUAL   test of
Dolphin SLCM's  (Submarine Launched Cruise
Missles) off  Sri Lankan Indian ocean coast on
May 2000; one each from Leviathan & Dolphin
submarines achieving 900+ mile range.

One of the pride of the Israeli Navy is rocking
gently among Mediterranean swells with the
silhouette of  Carmel mountain range reflected
on  water's surface.  Reaching Tekumah,  you
then have to walk across a temporary jetty & a
pier in the Haifa port & then climb down in a
vertical tunnel shaft leading into the bowels
of the Dolphin submarine's interior.


Homeport Is The Only Port Known To A Sub  

This because a vast structure known as Polynom
is being built by the U.S.A. Corps of Engineers to
shelter, hide,  protect the Haifa naval fleet in the
new century as well as at the other 2 naval ports.

He pushes back a bolt and opens the refrigerator,
revealing zucchini, a pallet of yogurts cups and a

The "CIC" Combat Information Center, as the Israel
Navy calls the subs central nerve center, the heart
of the submarine, where all the ELINT information
comes together & all the operations are executed.  
Sub is controlled from 2 command leather chairs. 
It looks as if it could have been from the bridge of
a Star Trek movie. All displays are lit up in colors
showing ships keel is currently 24' below sea level.
"This was all built in Germany to US Navy & Israel
Navy most current specifications and innovations.
However, all these defensive & offensive weapons
systems are unique, custom, handmade & built to
last. The Tekumah, 57m long & 7m wide, is from
first 3 of the smaller Dolphin I series unlike bigger
Dolphin II's. Its a showpiece of the latest precision
engineering,  applied with a special stealth paint in
a custom color maximizing visual blindness to its
enemies in emerald sea-blue color combination.  
More precise, this is exact engineering made only
in Germany & in some instances it can not even be 
found on any Germany's own subs, that's suitable
for equipping vessels that have WMD capability.

Dolphin 1's a Further Order Of 3 Dolphins Follow

    
Some of the improvements of Super Dolphins
over first 3 that were produced back in 1990's
are: they are thirty-six feet longer, over10 feet
taller, don't produce any air bubbles, no noises,
have nonmetallic acoustical non detectable hulls,
a radical torpedo ejection system using unique
hydraulics mechanism which is quicker, quieter
and safer on deploying Seal Teams or nuclear
type cruise missiles, also a radical new towed
camouflaged quiet communication gear array,
stealthy sub shape modifications increased
oversized stowage for nuclear & conventional
mix reloads, new revolutionary unique 7 blade 
propeller design 4 more efficient distance and
high speed stealth operations. Original 3 1990
era Dolphin I have the  redesign 'X' 4 blade tail
rudder arrangement. Then Super Dolphin II's
were given an even newer 7 blade X layout. So
you can look carefully in pictures Above Israel
moved the dive planes from usual sail position
now to forward upper hull allowing for quicker
submerging and extremely faster surface
breaching deep ocean maneuvers.

Navy staff revealed at a 2012 news conference
that all 3 of the first generation  Dolphin I series
(Dolphin, Leviathan & Tekuma) have secretly
been up graded and even modernized whereby
each sub was partially disassembled both engine
and electrical being thoroughly scrubbed clean.
Hull cracks were welded & other electronics got
complete make over with new technologies
developed in last 10 years. This mid life 0-time
complete submarine refurbishment means IF
the Israel Navy decides to change-out the 3
older Dolphin I subs for newer Dolphin II's or
even III's. The 3 older Dolphin I's are good for
another 25 years of service therefore bringing
a very high resale price. This means that all 3
Dolphin I series subs have now been brought
up to current standards w larger fuel tanks
concomitant 25% increase in range conversion
of two more torpedo tubes, enhanced 650mm
size for ICCM Inter Continental Cruise Missiles
capability as found now on very new Turbo
Popeye 3 extended range weapons, the seven
blade tail rudder with new 7 blade high tech
propeller to provide faster speeds and ranges.
This will allow the INS the choice of either use
the Suez canal or be able to circumnavigate
Africa while not relying on others or political
encumbrances. This works out to sea endur-
ances of over a 1
½
 months and unrefueled
distances of over 10,000km. The 12 hundred
plus mile cruise missile carries a 200 kiloton
nuclear warhead  OR   a conventional type
warhead depending on 11 minute quick -
change before firing / launch . Israel Naval
Service is now awaiting delivery of sixth 6th
Dolphin II series ballistic submarine Dragon
in late 2019.  Dolphin II series has on board
an AIP (Air Independent Propulsion) system
that will allow continuous submerged times
over month in duration without any bubbles
or noises. Naval command has established
2 complete crews for each sub & ship which
translates into less down time & fresher more
motivated alert crew members throughout the
whole ballistic nuclear sub fleet / Wolf Pack!;

NO ROOM FOR DOUBT
Deep in their interiors, on decks 2/3, submarines
contain a secret that even in Israel is only known
to a few insiders: nuclear warheads, small enough
to be mounted on cruise missiles but  explosive
enough to execute a nuclear strike that'll cause
the most devastating underground results. This
secret is considered 1 of the best kept in modern
military history. Anyone who speaks about it in
Israel runs the risk of being sentenced to a very
long prison term in extreme solitary confinement.  
Just ask a 40+ year prisoner named Mr Vununu !

Our der Spiegel Research was conducted in
Israel, Germany & the USA,  among current
and past government ministers, military staffs,
defense engineers & intelligence agents, no
longer leaves any room for doubt: With the
help of new German maritime tech, Israel has
managed to create for itself a floating nuclear
weapons arsenal: a 21st century fleet of subs
all  equipped with the latest state of Naval
nuclear technologies. Foreign journalists have
never boarded 1of the combat vessels before.
In an unaccustomed show of new openness,
senior politicians & the military with the Jewish
state were now willing to talk about importance
of this 20 year on going German-Israeli military
cooperation & her role, albeit usually under the
condition of anonymity.  "In the end, it is really
very simple," so says Defense Minister Ehud
Barak 2015. "Germany is helping to defend the
only Jewish state's future and it's  security.
Germans are very proud of the fact that they
have secured the existence of State of Israel
for years to come." on the other hand any
research that did take place in Israel was
subject to Israeli censorship. Any Israeli quotes,
as well as any of the photographer's pictures,
had to be submitted to the military censor. All
questions about Israel's nuclear capability,
whether on air, land or on water, were taboo.

Decks #2 & #3,    where nuclear weapons are
kept, remained off-limits even to the visitors. In
Germany, the government's military assistance
for sub program has been very controversial for  
25 years, a topic of discussion for the media and
parliament. German Chancellor Angela Merkel
fears the kind of public debate that German Nobel
laureate Günter Grass reignited with a published
poem critical of Israel, Merkel insists on secrecy
& doesn't want the details of deal to be public.
To this day, Bonn governments are sticking to
positions that they do not know anything about
the Israeli nuclear weapons systems onboard
German design and built submarines.  Now the
3rd Bid for Dolphin 3's #7, #8 and #9 ordered !

'PURPOSES OF NUCLEAR AMBIGUITY'
Many former German officials  have admitted to
the nuclear dimension for the first time. "from the
first orders of Dolphin subs they were supposed
to be nuclear-capable,"  says Hans Rühle, head
of the planning staff at German Defense Ministry
in the late 80's and 90's.  Ruhle says he doubted
that "Israel stationed nuclear weapons on her 
Dolphin submarines" Ruppelt, director of arms  
procurement at the Defense Ministry admits that
it was  immediately clear that the Israeli Navy got
subs as nuke weapons platforms the sort that a
small country like Israel can't station on land. Our
officials speaking under protection of anonymity
were even more forth coming. "From the very
arrival, Dolphins were primarily used for purposes
of nuclear capability," says a ministry official with
knowledge of the program. Why else would the
poorest of the 3 Israeli military branches have
spent hundreds of millions of dollars on ultra
modern under-ground facilities, on nuclear
peripheral naval assets, as well as these very
expensive MSRP 500 million $ Dolphin subs?  
I rest my case.

Insiders say that Israeli defense technology
company Rafael built the under water flying
cruise missile for Dolphin sub series torpedo
tubes. Apparently it involved a further new
development of the very successful Popeye
ALCM (Air Launch Cruise Missile) type, that 
the USAF swears by for its strategic B-52 air
borne configuration (Have Nap & Have Lite)
with the now range capabilities around 1,500
/2,000 mi that reach Iran even with an Israeli
400 pound nuclear warhead factored in. All
Nuke payloads come from the Negev desert
where Israel has operated a French design &
built facility for 50 plus years, since the early
1960s in underground: plutonium separation
plant/weapons fabrication assembly building

Then there was the legend of a brand new colonel
named Issac Yaakov who was the liaison between
the civilian, IDF and the Prime Minister, especially
when it came to   The Bomb.   Again Shimshon or
Samson was the code & in 1966  a rush was made

to finish a nuclear device which 3 did make it in
time for 1967 War. It was first thought the new
Jewish state was not going to survive & there
fore a plan was drawn up to put the A-bomb on
a hill top over looking Egypt but from the Sinai
side by an IDF commando team with 2 big trans-
port helicopters & then detonate it to scare the
Egyptians enough to make them back down
from their onslaught of Israel. Then luck would
have it the battle turned in Israel's favor & this 
half baked plan simply went away into history.

Remember, Nuclear Ambiguity is the most genius
            Israeli Military Concept Ever !


Questions how developed the Israeli cruise
missiles are now no longer a matter of debate.
Their development is a complex project.  The
missiles only public manifestation was 2 tests
Israel conducted off the coast of Sri Lanka for
the Indian defense forces & was monitored at
both ends by US 7th fleet leak in an accidental
USN secret report in late 2002.  By 2017 these
ballistic nuclear cruise sub launched missiles
have exceeded 3500 mi range @ Mach 1. The
story goes that in 2000 both Israeli Navy subs
Dolphin and Leviathan EACH fired a 900+ mile
SLCM from one of it's over sized 25" torpedo
tubes off the coast of Sri Lanka down range
to Indian Naval officers and dignitaries aboard
prepositioned Indian & Israeli naval vessels.

These subs are military response to threats
in a region where Israel is totally surrounded.
"Where there is no mercy for the weak & 2nd
place is certain death "  Defense Min. Barak
says.  They are an insurance policy against
the Israelis' fundamental fear was that Arabs
could wipe us off map at anytime today, Ben
-Gurion, prime minister (PM) and founder of
the State of Israel had often said.

Ben-Gurion said "We'll never again be led as
lambs to slaughter," a lesson Israel drew from
their history with: Egyptians, Hittites, Romans,
Greeks, Crusaders, Omayyads, Turks, British
and Nazi's.  Armed with nuclear weapons, the
subs are a signal to any would-be enemy that
This Jewish State would not be defenseless
in the event of a nuclear attack, but could hit
back w/ ultimate weapons of mass destruction.
It was at this time in the 1950's that PM David
Ben Gurion designated one of his young (20's)
disciples Shimon Peres who's fluent in French
and liberals in charge of Germany, England and
of France, to put together a TRIAD. ICBM's, Air
Force bombs and now the sub fleet of the Israeli
Navy branch. Dolphins are "way of guaranteeing
that Any enemy will not be tempted to strike pre-
emptively with non-conventional weapons & try
to get away Scott-Free," as then  Israeli Naval
Commander Admiral Avraham Avi Botzer puts it.

REMEMBER, democracies don't attack/declare
war on other democracies. Five decades and 5
wars, Israel has had nuclear weapons & never
used them. How many decades will that work for
say Iran?  Uh, probably it will not be even years
but rather days or just hours! Now Israel's over
half century of nuclear deniability has NOT been
the problem, peace loving Iranian terrorist state
has been.       Just Like an Adolph Hitler !

QUESTIONS OF GLOBAL RESPONSIBILITY
In this version of a tit-for-tat, known as nuclear
second strike capability, 100's of thousands
dead are avenged with an equally large number
of casualties.   It's a strategy the USA & Russia
practiced during the Cold War by constantly
keeping part of its nuke arsenal ready on subs.
Israel, is about the size of New Jersey or state
of Germany's Hesse,    which could be wiped
out with just a couple of nuclear strikes, are now
safely guarded from this threat potential today. At
the same time, Israeli nuclear arsenal has caused
countries like Iran, Syria & Egypt to regard Israel's
nuclear capacity with fear or even envy while
making them reconsider starting their own nuke
weapon programs.  This makes the question of
its global political responsibility just all the more
relevant for Germany. Should Germany, home of
the perpetrators, be allowed to assist Israel land
of victims, in the development of nuclear weapon
delivery systems capable extinguishing hundreds
thousands of lives? Is Berlin promoting an arms
race in the Middle East? Or should Germany be
a historic reminder & obligation stemming from
crimes of Nazis, assume a responsibility that is
become "part of Germany's reason of state as
Chancellor Merkel said in a speech before the
Israeli parliament, Knesset, in March 2008?
"It means that for me as a chancellor, Israel's
security is never to be negotiable,"  Merkel
told lawmakers. Perils of such unconditional
solidarity were also addressed Germanys new
president, Joachim Guk, during his first official
visit to Jerusalem in 2012: "I really don't want to
imagine every scenario that gets our chancellor
in tremendous hot water when politically she's
implementing her position, Israel's security is a
constantly a part of Germany's reason for being
democratic state with a conscience of our past"

The German government has always pursued
an unwritten rule on its Israel policy, which has
already lasted half a century and survived all
changes of administrations and that former
German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder then
summarized in 2002  when he said: "I want to
be perfectly clear: "The Israeli State receives
from us what it needs to maintain its security."

Part 2: Strauss, Beginnings of Arms Cooperation
Those who subscribe to this logic are often
 prepared to violate our arms export laws. Ever
since the era of Konrad Adenauer, country's first
postwar leader met with newly appointed inter-
mediary Shimon Peres, our German chancellors
have pushed thru various military deals w/ Israel
without parliamentary approval, kept the Federal
Security Council in the dark or as then DM Franz-
Josef Strauss, member of conservative Christian
Social Union did & personally dropped off military
equipment. That's what happened in an incident
in the mid 1980s, when Strauss drove up to a
darken Israeli mission in Cologne in a sedan car
and handed blue prints wrapped in a coat to a
Mossad liaison officer, saying it was "for Black
Ops boys back in Tel Aviv." It's plans for a ultra
revolutionary model of an armor-piercing 120mm
main tank canon & which would later be adopted
by the U.S, Army & every western tank producing
country. It was so cutting edge that it would by
end of century be 1 of 3 reasons Merkava's are
considered the best combat main battle tank in
the world period! Israel soon was making its own
version for it's new Merkava Mk3 in 1989, today's
Merkava Mk IV BAZ & Merkava Mk4 BARAK.  A
real battlefield game changer in armor warfare.
And then Rheinmetal of Germany received from
Israel the Lahat, guided missiles that's fired by
tanks and BVR  (beyond visual range / over the
horizon); so accurate & successful that now 14
armies, including NATO & Abrams tanks have it
in inventories. These Arms cooperation's were
delicate issues under chancellors. During the
Cold War, Bonn feared that it may lose Arab
world to East Germany if it openly aligned itself
with Israel. Later, Germany was consumed by
fears over Arab oil, lubricant of the German
economic miracle. Cooperating with Germany
had the potential to be politically explosive for
various  Israeli  administrations. Whether what
form the Jewish state should accept Germany's
help was controversial for Israeli public opinion.
Then Prime Minister Menachem Begin who'd
lost much of his family in the Holocaust,  could
only see that Germany as "land of murderers."
To this day, financial assistance for Israel is still
referred to as "reparations." Funny how in the
end things sort of work themselves out like a
2006  discovery of gas and oil reserves larger
even than Saudi Arabia, now have been found
within Eretz Israel territory.

My Reason For Insertion Here Is Because:
The Dolphin series of subs brought a whole new
Revolution to various IDF commands, forces
and equipment around the term "Net Centric."
Dolphins were the first in the new age of High
Tech, Computerization, Crypto, Encrypted
Communication. Now the inter operative ability
between Dolphins, F-35I's, Surface ships, Armor
Assets, RPV's,  G550 Gulfstream IAI CEWS,
Command & Control, Military Staffs, Iron Dome,

and Civilian Command & Control.   ALL can...
now instantly & securely talk to one another.

Back to Dolphins...
Co-operation on defense matters was a little bit
more problematical. It began during era of king
Franz-Josef, who recognized early on that aid to
Israel was not just a new moral imperative,  but
was also result of pragmatic political necessity.
But no one could help Germany now acquire
world respect more effectively than these
children of Holocaust survivors.

In December 1957, Strauss then met with an
Israeli delegation on discussions at his home
Rosenheim, in Bavaria. Most prominent member
of the Israelis was the man who, in the following
decades, would become key figure in Israel's
arms deals with Germany, as well the father of
Israeli atomic bomb: Shimon Peres, who later
became Israel's prime minister & then 93 yr old
president. He would pass away Sept 28th 2016.

NO CLEAR BASIS
It's now known that arms shipments began no
later than 1958. German defense minister even
had arms & equipment secretly removed from
German military stockpiles and then reported to
the police as stolen. Many of these shipments
reached Israel by way of indirect routes & were
declared as Loans. Equipment included Sikorsky
helicopters, Noratlas transports, upgraded Patton
M60 tanks, aircraft guns, howitzer and antitank
guided missiles. There is "no clear legal or
budgetary basis for the shipments," German
officials admitted in an internal document at
the time. This all in very close co-ordination with
NATO & Eisenhower white house administration.
Adenauer backed his defense minister in 1967
when it became clear just how correct he was in
this decision, as IDF-AF preempted an attack by
its neighbors and achieved a brilliant victory in
6-Day War. So from then on, PM Strauss's friend
Peres consistently reminded all his fellow Israelis
not to forget what helped us achieve that victory.
Fact that  German security guarantee was not
question of partisan politics became evident six
years later, when Social Democrat Willy Brandt
headed the government in Bonn & Israel was on
verge of defeat in 1973 Yom Kippur War.  Then
Germany was officially uninvolved in the war but
chancellor personally approved arms shipments
to Israel, Brandt biographer, Merseburger then
reported. As those involved recall today, Brandt's
decision was a "violation of law" that his speech
writer Klaus Harpt sought to justify by attributing
chancellors actions to an emergency beyond law.
Chancellor Brandt apparently saw "over riding
obligation of the German government" to rescue
the country created by WWII.

DID GERMANY FINANCE ISRAELI NUKE PGM?
It was only after horrors of 1956 war that Israeli
leadership & pentagon (Kirya) said never again
and in underground plutonium separation plants
and nuclear weapons plant they wanted the only
means available to prevent another Arab inspired
holocaust. In the '60s Israel's interests had moved
past conventional arms. BenGurion had entrusted
Peres with a secret project:   Operation Samson,
named after Biblical figure who is supposed to
have lived at the time when Israelites were being
oppressed by Philistines.  Samson was believed
to be invincible  and was seen as a self reliant
figure. Goals of operation was to build an atomic
bomb. Israelis told allies they needed a source
of cheap energy for a combination sea water
desalination plant & electric power plant; & they
then planed to use water to make Negev Dessert
bloom. Strangely that has all happen today but,
costs have made that project prohibitive due to
enormous burdens of defense arms spending.
 

Now it should be noted here a little know factoid
in history. The corrupt dictator of Egypt Nasser,
decided to nationalize & take over forcibly; British
built, French financed Suez Canal in 1956. These
2 only friend both had was Israel who agreed to
eliminate terrorist crossing over from Sinai and
wreaking havoc on the Israeli settlers, farmers &
school kids many of whom died & no one cared.
Not Russia, Not China, Not the USA and certainly
not the UN.  A simmering undeclared war went on
unchecked from 1948 cease fire to October 1956
Suez War where the Israelis conquered the entire
Sinai, upto & including the Suez Canal itself. Then
pretending to intercede to separate Egyptian and
Israeli armies away from Suez, Franco-British
forces attacked then pushing back and crushing
Egyptian army.  Then to the rescue of Egypt was
UN, Russia, China & YUP USA;  all now ganging
up on Britain, France, Israe;l passing UN threats
and forcing them to retreat from the whole canal.
What most don't seem to remember is this would
bring General Charles DeGaule to power with his
first action to lash out at NATO and threw them &
their military Paris headquarters out on their ear.
Pssst, Payback is a bitch.This also had an added
extra payment for Israel's loyalty providing her an
entire Dimona nuclear reactor complex, weapons
factory & reprocessing plant. Germany paid the
bills with over a billion dollar secret Loan during
1960's. Next France constructed entire complex
secretly. Britain decided to make sure deep state
in Washington got  message with a very critical
ingredient used in nuclear weapons production
'Heavy Water' delivered secretly under table by
the tons sent to Israel via Royal Navy. This was
a political slap in the face only for the USA. This
is Suez War payback. Shame, US doesn't seem
to get it, stabbing allies in the back... STUPID !

The German government was left in the dark, with
Strauss being the likely exception.  CSU politician
was apparently brought into the loop in 1961.This
is suggested by a memo dated June 1961,  class-
ified as "top secret," which Strauss dictated after a
meeting in Paris with Peres & Ben-Gurion, in which
he wrote: "Ben-Gurion spoke about the production
of nuclear weapons."     One can speculate on the
reasons that  Ben-Gurion,   a Polish-born social
democrat chose to include the Bavarian conserva-
tive Strauss in his plans. There are indications that
the Israeli government had hoped to receive lots of
financial assistance for Operation Samson & make
a nuclear option a 1959  reality in time for '67 War.

Israel was cash-strapped at the time and with the
construction of her A-bomb consuming enormous
sums of money. This led Ben-Gurion to negotiate
in great secrecy w/ Conrad Adenauer over Loans
worth billions. It was reported that  to the German
negotiation records the  federal government has
now released in response to requests by Spiegel
Ben-Gurion  wanted to use the  Loan  for dessert
infrastructure project in the  Negev desert. There
was also that talk of an elusive sea water to fresh
water desalination plant that made Negev bloom.

Part 3: 1st Subs Secretly Assembled in England
A country that has the bomb is also likely to
search for safe places to store it and safe
launching platforms, like a sub, for example.
In 1970s,  Brandt & Schmidt were the first
German chancellors to be  confronted with
the Israelis' determination to obtain subs. 3
vessels were to be built all in Great Britain
using the plans drawn up by the German
company Industrie Kontor Lübeck IKL. But
an export permit was needed to send secret
military documents out of the country.To get
around this, IKL did agree with the German
Defense Ministry that the drawings would be
completed on the letterhead of a British ship
yard & flown on British military plane to the
British town of Barrow-in-Furness, where the
subs were being assembled.  All three subs
later prove to be too small for nuke weapons.

STRATEGIC DEPTH
Assuring Israel's security was no longer the
only goal of the German - Israeli arms co-
operation, which then became a lucrative
business for German industry. In '77 the last
of the U-209 3 GAL subs arrived in Haifa. But
at that time,  nobody's thinking about nuclear
second-strike nuclear capability. It wouldn't be
until late 1980's, when more & more Israeli
officers were returning from U.S. military
academies & raving about this new USA sub
technology,  that a discussion began about
modernizing the Israeli Navy with state-of-the
-art subs and about an Israeli nuclear option or
a Second Strike Ballistic Nuclear Capability
 (The Samson Option).

 
Iran's Vulnerability from Subs, Drones & ICCM's
Inter Continental Cruise Missile

It should be inserted here at an extraordinary
Israeli military chiefs '90 meeting thought out a
new regional strategy of US Navy ideas of nuke
TRIAD posture & Israel's own Samson Option
all converging with Subs! Bigger, faster, stealthy
& quieter than even then nuclear subs. It means
Israel Naval Service  (INS)  would assume an
integral part of the   nuclear deterrent force   by
incorporation of sophisticated stealth platforms
having a radical new design, hybrid technology
& state-of-the-art  naval electronics for the 21st
century. This was all concept at the time of the
yet to be built German SSK 800 prototype subs.

At this time in early 1990's a power struggle was
then raging in the Israeli military. There were 3
dedicated teams working on 3 different classified
projects, 1 for each branch of service:  Air Force,
Army and Naval components, all @ same time!
 
Stealth Lavi II Twin: Seats, Tail, Engines Concept
IDF Army Merkava Mk IV BAZ  w/Trophy Shield


The IDF-AF had a tiny hard to see 'Lavi 1,' but later
a 2nd generation 'Lavi II'  was developed as Stealth
Follow-On w/ many foreign air force interest but, to
consternation of US Sec of Defense Weinberger
who had decided to KILL THE LAVI  that brought
much joy to US military industrial complex period !

IDF Army had Merkava future MBT tank project
while Israel Navy had a 2 track concept. Each one
of 2 tracks developed brought new technologies.
1 team advocated larger Saar 5 missile corvettes
with Attack / SAR helicopter capabilities;  while an-
other team went with 6 next-gen subs for off shore
patrolling & surveillance. Israel is like an island
where 97% of all Israel goods arrive via water
according to Ami Aylon, 1990 Israel Naval Service
commander. Who later would be promoted to head
Shin Bet Isr, version of the NSA intel community.

Unknown then was 2006 Paradigm shift; Immense
Energy & Gas discoveries just off Tel Aviv, Haifa
coasts that needed Naval surveillance protection.
Now a very ironic twist to this timeline: enter Maj
Gen Israel Tal, father of the revolutionary new
Israeli Merkava (Chariot) MBT of the 1970's. Back
in the '80's he gets this wonderful German gift of
the world's state-of-the-art MBT 'Canon', the New
120mm rifled Rheinmetal of Germany barrel. This
puts the Merkava in same class with latest British,
French, German & US Abrams MBT's. 10yrs later
now as deputy minister of defense he'll return this
favor and propose the INS take on a key nuclear
Triad role with a stealthy boat; Type 800/Dolphin
series concept subs that will become armed with
proprietary Israeli ballistic nuke tipped warheads
first on US. Harpoons & latter the Israeli designed 
Popeye 2 & 3 submarine launched cruise missiles
or SLCM. This major restructure would then seal
the fate of INS as this paradigm in military shift
reveals stunning 9 boat Wolf Pack fleet. It's worth
over $5 Billion in a 30 year program (1995-2025). 
Then you add costs for underground & hardening
modern facilities at all Three naval bases, drones,
aircraft, nuclear weapons, manning, fast missile
boats both big & small; the total now exceeds 10
billion US dollars = Sea Supremacy. We're seeing
weaponization of nuke tips to torpedo launched
intercontinental cruise missiles. First with Popeye
SLCM later when Tomahawks were denied, 2,000
mile redesigned Turbo Popeye III. So, Israel simply
does as she so often has done before when critical
weapons have been denied or embargoed, to just
go out design, develop & build them herself which
are then better faster lighter & a lot more compact,
less costly with added bonus of no political strings
& restrictions.  Only after the arrival of 3rd Dolphin
Tekuma,  was it realized that each of the 3 Israel
naval ports of Haifa, Eilat & Ashdod;  would now
require a naval deployment pattern of buying subs
in lots of 3's. While one is in port the other two are
rotated out for sea deployment, allowing for crew
refreshing, shore leave, resupplying, comings and
goings. Note, this has been temporary redefined
6 Subs were needed with 3 additional in a 10 year
long term replacement due prime minister's witch
hunt investigations to play out just to keep the
"orders from lapsing or cancelling altogether). So
Dolphin Series die was then cast. Dolphins were
valued at about ½ billion dollars, but ran the INS
only around $330 million funded. The first 3 were
almost free. Thanks to Sadaam Hussein & Iraq
for your contributions to Israeli Defense Forces!

Then it was becoming apparent according to Adm
Ayalon, "that in Middle East things were heading
for nuclear weapons," especially in Iraq. Fact that
Arab states were seriously interested in building
the bomb changed Israel's defense doctrine, Subs
now used as tactical weapons on various missions
but the center of our discussions in the 1980s was
the question of whether INS navy was to receive
additional task known as Strategic Depth.  The
purchasing of these Nine submarines was
"country's key important strategic decision."

STRATEGIC DEPTH OR NUCLEAR 2nd STRIKE
By end of the debate, the navy specified as its
requirement that Haifa's Israel Shipyards begin
production on an enhanced Reshev class Saar
class with helicopter stern capabilities w/ a new
requirement for 3 SAAR V missile corvettes from
US builder which would be eligible for US military
FMS dollars. However, in 2013 the new Rafael
Barak 8 SAM systems replaced in all 3 ships the
original Barak 1 systems. Then new naval state-
of-the-art IAI ELTA EL/M2248 multi-function 360°
active phased array 3D radar surface warfare
C-Link system. Employing multi path beams &
pulse Doppler techniques. It is "pie-in-the-sky
demand," as naval commander Ayalon admitted. 
But Israel Navy top strategists had hopes for a
budgetary miracle. Alternatively they are hoping
a rich benefactor that will be willing to provide
Israel a few billion $ type Dolphin ballistic subs.


SAAR V Class Corvettes Lahav, Eilat & Hanit

Dec '02 follow-up Chiefs Conference assessment

Rings with the addition of a 3rd ring. First Ring was
West Bank-PLO-Gaza-Hamas Lebanon-Hezbollah.
2nd Ring was; Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and Jordan.
3rd Ring now included: Turkey, Libya, Iraq, Sudan
& a virulent nuclear Iran.  Now a 2nd order of three
Super Dolphins was followed by 3rd order creating
9 Nuclear Wolf pack. Series I, II & III forming a sub

. But thanks to Obama politics and
desperation, a bad deal was rushed into by late
2013. Thus a ripple effect was to drive a Mid East
realignment of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait
and Bahrain to form a front with Israel against an
emerging nuclear Shiite Iran.     Interesting ! 
2011 we saw a metastasizing cancer imposing a
terrorist Caliphate state from Lebanon to Basra oil
fields on Persian Gulf evolving from the ISIL wars
in Syria then Iraq and soon to Afghanistan, Jordan,
Lebanon & into Saudi Arabian peninsular by 2015.
Only now it's Iran filling in void left by ISIS, AlQaida
and joining Russia, Asaad's Syria, Nasralla's army

NO REASON FOR CONCERN
Plants for civilian desalination facilities operated
by nuclear power did in fact exist & development
of the Negev was also 1of the largest projects in
Israel's brief history. But when Rainer Barzel, the
conservatives' German parliamentary floor leader,
inquired about the project in Jerusalem, Israelis
explained that obtaining water thru desalination
was an epochal task. Official who accompanied
Barzel noted that Israelis said that "necessary
nuke power plants are monitored internationally
and could not be used for any military purposes
and that we had no reason to be so concerned."
An Israeli desalination plant operating on nuclear
power was never built & it remains unclear what
exactly happened with well over billion dollars in
deutsche marks that Germany gave the Israelis
in the period until 1965. The payments were
processed by the Frankfurt based Kreditanstalt
für Wiederaufbau (Reconstruct Credit Institute).
The head of the 'RCU' organization said internal
discussions that the use of funds was  "never
audited." "Everything seems to suggest that the
Israeli A- bomb was indeed paid fully by German
Dutch marks," says Avner Cohen, an Israeli
historian at the Monterey Institute Studies, in
California & an expert on world nuke weapons.
So by 1967 Israel had assembled 6 nuke bombs.
Then Israeli governments dismissed questions
about its nuclear arsenal with a standard official
response that originated in1973 by def. minister
Peres:  "Israel will not threaten it's neighbors in
Middle East & will do all in its power to prevent
Arab Nuclear threat." National stand on Nuclear
Ambiguity has served Israel well for 50+ years
and counting and is still the Israeli government's
official position.  That is mainly due to a technical
fact that all nukes, even on submarines, are not
nuclear assembled, but remain only a screw driver
turn away from being in combat status. So in fact
Israel can state honestly they do not have any
nuclear weapons. When dealing with their German
allies, however, Israeli politicians used language
that hardly concealed the truth.  A story of the
legendary former Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
visiting Bonn in the fall of 1977 he said to then
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt on neighboring Egypt
old fear that 'Israel might resort to nukes.' Dayan
said he understood those Egyptians' concerns &
pointed out that his opinion use of nukes against
Aswan dam would have 'devastating consequen-
ces. And for that reason, he said 'we will not con-
sider this option unless our existence is threaten.'

More recently PM Netanyahu said in Jan 2020
that Israel is now a global nuclear power, but
instantly corrected to a 'global Energy Power.'

KOHL-RABIN TURN ISRAEL INTO SUB POWER
Two who finally catapulted Israel into the circle
of new modern submarine powers were PM's  
Kohl & Yitzhak Rabin. Rabin's father had fought
in World War II as a volunteer in Jewish Legion
of the British army & Rabin himself led the Israeli
army to victory, as it's chief of staff, in the 1967
Six-Day War.  In 1984 having served one term
as prime minister mid 1960s, then was demoted
in the cabinet, becoming the defense minister. He
knew that  just installed German government in
Bonn had introduced a new political principles for
arms exports in 1982. According to policy,  arms
shipments "can not add to increase tensions."

This malleable wording made possible delivery
of submarines to Israel, especially in combina-
tion with a famous remark once made by former
Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher:  "Any
thing that floats is OK" because governments
generally don't use boats that float to actually
suppress demonstrators of dissenting voices.


Early Proof of Concept Model for the Israel Navy 
Compare This Concept With Dolphin 3 Model  

After World War II, Allies had forbidden Germany
from building submarines. A result chief supplier
to the the German navy, Howaldtswerke-Deutsche
Werft AG (HDW), located in northern port city of
Kiel had to shift its focus building small 'coastal'
maneuverable subs that could operate in Baltic &
North Seas. Israelis were interested in ships that
could navigate in similarly shallow waters such as
along the Lebanese, Egypt, Iran & Syrian coast,
where they have to be able to lie at periscope
depth listening on communications comparing
sounds of ship's props with onboard data bases
 
Insert here, Israeli revolutionary new technology
of VR or subs with
Out the need for periscopes!

So Israelis had obtained bids from United States,
Great Britain & Netherlands, but it was German
boats that were the best of all, said an Israeli
who was involved in the decision. Weeks after
the fall of the Berlin Wall in '89, suddenly German
government, went practically unnoticed by the
general public, gave the green light for the con-
struction of 2 Dolphin II's class submarines with
the usual option for a third boat. Moshe Arens
the father of the IAF Lavi ATF, on his last day in
office recommended buying 2 Dolphins. Later it
was decided for a 3rd Dolphin but, soon killed
by incoming CinC Rabin. This strategic deal
of the century damn near fell through. Although
the Germans had agreed to pay
of the costs,
which mutually excluded any of Israel weapon
systems that the Americans were supposed to
help pay through FMS funds. But mean while
Israelis had voted in a new government into
office that was bitterly divided over investments.
Also the Navy always gets the last slice of any
military funding pie. Therefore... it would get
killed by new Defense Minister   Ehud Barak!

'AN INCONCEIVABLE SCENARIO'
In particular Moshe Arens, who was appointed
defense minister in 1990, fought to stop the
subs billion dollar agreement with success so
as to fund his AF pet Lavie project. On Nov 30
1990 Israeli government notified the shipyard in
Kiel that it wished to withdraw from contract. So
was a navy dream now lost of a nuclear 2nd
strike capability?
                                               By No Means!
In Jan 1991, the USAF attacked Iraq & then
Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein reacted by
firing modified Scud missiles at Israeli pop-
ulation center Tel Aviv. Bombardment lasted
6 weeks. Gas masks, some from Germany
were distributed to all households.  "It was an
inconceivable scenario," recalls Ehud Barak,
Israeli DM.  During those days Jews coming
from Russia arrived,  "and we're handing out
WWII German gas masks at the airport to help
protect them from poison gas that Iraqis had
put into Russian rockets with help of German
industry. Days after the Scud missile attack
began, German military officials from their
Embassy in Israel requested an urgent secret
meeting at the Bonn Chancellery, in a secret
report with bag of 'stuff'' whose contents was
emptied onto the conference table. There
spread out were dozens of electronic parts
components of a control system & even the
detonator percussion fuses of these modified
Scud missiles. They all had one big thing in
common: All bore Made In Germany.  So...

No Scuds & Without Scuds = No Dead Israelis
Once again, Germany bore responsibility and
that was also the message that Hanan Alon,
senior Israeli Defense Ministry official brought to
Kohl during a visit to Bonn about a month after
the above briefing. He said "It'll be unpleasant if
it came out through media that Germany helped
Iraq to make poison gas & then supplied us with
equipment against it, Mr. Chancellor," Alon said.

Then according to Kohl he also issued an open
 threat, saying: "You're aware words Gas and
 Germany do NOT go Very Good Together
."


Israeli Techs & German HDW Workers

Part 4: The Shipyards of Kiel
Germans got the message."Israel-Germany-Gas"
would sound like a "horrible headline" in the real
world, then Foreign Minister Genscher, warned in
an internal memo. January 1991 after beginning
of the Gulf War German government had agreed
to supply Israel with armaments worth over
One+ billion deutsche marks = $550,000,000

This included complete financing of 2  Dolphin
submarines @ 880 million deutsche marks. The
Budgetary Miracle for the tiny Israeli Navy had
come to pass. Each subsequent Dolphin was
about  ± $300 million  cost to the Israeli Navy
in it's annual disbursement of funds.

ISRAEL HAD FOUND ITS BENEFACTOR...
                   Presidente for Life Sadaam Hussein!

According to military wisdom, a country that buys
2 submarines always also buys a 3rd.  One sub
is usually in port,  while other 2 take turns being
deployed during operations "After we had ordered
first 2 boats, it was clear we had then entered into
a deal which would involve repeat orders," says
an individual who was a member of Israeli cabinet
at the time. INS sub orders always come in 3's.

On a winter's day in 1994, at 6pm, an Israeli AF
plane landed in the military area of Cologne-Bonn
Airport. Its passengers wanted to discuss future
of Israel & the Middle East. On board were 3 men:
PM Yitzhak Rabin, his national security adviser &
Mossad chief Shabtai Shavit. The small delegation
was driven to chancellor's residence, where Helmut
Kohl was waiting with foreign adviser, confidant &
intelligence coordinator Bern Schmidbauer.

WHEAT BEER FOR ISRAEL
On that evening, Kohl and Rabin discussed the
path to peace in the Middle East. Rabin & Arafat
had been jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize
the year before, together with Peres. For 1st time
in a long time, conciliation seemed possible be-
tween Israelis & Arabs. Germany as middle man.

In Bonn, Rabin spoke at length about German-
Israeli relationship, which was still difficult. At
dinner, Kohl surprised visitors serving wheat
beer. The Israelis were delighted. "Beer tastes
great," Rabin said. Ice had been broken.  On
that evening, Israeli premier asked Germany
for a 3rd sub and Kohl spontaneously said
"of course!" At around midnight, Schmidbauer
took Rabin back to the airport. Kohl, who was
virtually unmatched in the art of male bonding
in politics, sent a case to Israel for Christmas
1994. Only a few months after secret meeting
in Bonn Feb 1995 the contract for 3rd sub, the
Tekumah was signed. German share of costs
totaled 220 million German marks.

WELL-PROTECTED SECRETS OF SUBS IN KIEL

Since then, one of the  most secretive arms
projects in the Western world has been under
way in Kiel,  where a special form of bonding
between German & Israeli people developed.
Around half a dozen Israelis work at the ship
yard today on a long-term basis. Friendships,
have formed between HDW engineers, their
families, Israeli families & special occasions
are celebrated together. But despite all these
contacts Israelis always make sure  no out-
siders were allowed near subs without escorts.

Managers from Thyssen-Krupp, which bought
HDW in '2005, are denied access even today.
"The main goal of everyone involved was to
ensure that there would be no public debate
about project, neither in Israel nor Germany,"
says former Israeli naval chief Ayalon.  This
explains why everything related to equipment
on the ships remains hidden behind a veil of
secrecy. One of the special features the equip-
ment used in Dolphin class, which is named
after the lead ship is AIP, Air Independent
Propulsion via a Fuel Cell. Also unlike other
conventional subs, these Dolphins don't use
6 standard torpedo tubes with a 533mm dia.
in the non metallic bow. In response to Israeli
request the HDW engineers designed four
additional 650mm tubes in oversize diameter;
a special design not found on any other sub in
the world. A Most Curious Request & Feature!

What's the purpose of the large tubes? In a
classified 2006 memo, German governments
argued that tubes are an "option for the transfer
of special forces and pressure-free stowage of
equipment" like combat Seal teams for example
who can be released through the 25" oversized
shafts for secret operations. Same explanation
was also publically given by the Israeli Navy.


Jericho Nuke Football  Core W/ Protective Shields     

First it was the size of a watermelon for the
Jericho I 1970's program. Then it evolved to
about the size of a large cantaloupe for Israeli
AF ATG Air To Ground weapons (back then
first generation 1980 Popeye I). 2000 & later
around a small cantaloupe size for Dolphin sub
weapons. Today it is about the size of small
grapefruit as it fits into an IDF Army artillery
shells, under sea mines, land mines F-15, F-16
F-35 air to ground missile ordinance. Arrow 3
SABM  (surface to air Anti Ballistic Missiles)
have been modified to carry nukes in both the
Defensive role missile as well as the Offensive
IRBM version's. Jericho III ICBM's are now
also fitted with the latest compact size nuclear
version according to several foreign military
sources like England's   'Janes.'

ISRAEL TOTAL SECOND STRIKE CAPABILITY
NOW STANDS @ SIXTEEN  NUCLEAR CRUISE
MISSILES FOR EACH OF THE   NINE DOLPHIN
CLASS SSN / SSK SUBS.   ALL 16 SLCM's COME
WITH BOTH A CONVENTIONAL PACKAGE  &
A NUCLEAR KIT. TOTAL NUMBER WARHEADS
IN THE CURRENT INVENTORY WAS NORTH
OF 600 ACCORDING TO 'JOURNAL OF ATOMIC
SCIENTIST' BACK IN 2008. ALSO ITS REPORTED
LAST 3 SUBS CAN DO 37 KNOTS WHICH IS
OVER 12 KNOTS FASTER THAN ANY OF THE
FIRST 3 DOLPHINS AND 8 KNOTS THAN THE
SECOND SET OF 3 SUPER DOLPHIN II's!

Further to the above is a revolutionary scientific
break-through by an American teenager in April
2013 whereby a totally new process to recharge
a capacitor battery is accomplished in a fraction
of the time. Cell phones instead of 4+ hours can
now be fully charged in less 20 seconds while an
electric car running only on batteries instead of
overnight is now only 15 minutes!  So Dolphin
subs with this amazing technology can 1/2 re-
charge in under 1 hour & full charge in 4 short
hours tops ! The even Newer Dolphin II's 2nd
batch of 3 ordered in 2016 for $1.3 billion will
incorporate this new tech. So even in 2017 $
Dolphins were costing the Israel Government
 around the original $320m price each!


KEEPING OPTIONS OPEN
The first 3 boats steel was cut in April '92
and boats were laid down in Oct 1994, Apr
1995, Dec 96 with completion in July 1999
November 1999 and July 2000 as Dolphin, 
Leviathan and Tekuma. First 2 subs were
fully donated by Germany, which also paid
for half of the costs for the third boat. 2005
two more Dolphin class submarines were
ordered with options on 3rd to be delivered
in 2009. Currently they are the most ex-
pensive weapon platforms in all of Israel's
arsenal apart from WMD nuclear program.

Dolphins are enlarged version derive from
the Type 800 export class, except  internal
revisions, to permit the new incorporation
of nuclear weapons & so that underwater
Seal Teams can leave & reenter the sub. It
is also likely that the boats are fitted with
latest Triten / Spike anti-ship/helicopter/
drone SAM system. The Dolphin II new
submarines ordered in 2005 are bigger
still and all have AIP fuel cells. Allowing
them to stay submerged weeks instead of
days at a time. Primary anti-ship and anti
submarine armament is the STN "Atlas"
DM2A4-ER Seahake a Fiber Optic guided
torpedo carrying 260-kg (573-lb) warhead
to a range of 14,215 yds. in active mode at
35kts or to 28km (6 miles) in passive mode
at 27 kts. Delivery of the complete DM2A4
package from Germany numbers of NT37E
torpedoes are included in regular torpedo fit.
Torpedo tube-laid mines both conventional &
nuke are an alternative to standard torpedoes
and other weapons that can be launched. Upto
5 UGM-84C Sub-Harpoon underwater launch
cruise missiles of Israeli  design (Popeye I&II)
manufacture are fitted with conventional/nuke
warheads. Along with 6 X 533mm (21") con-
ventional tubes, all of these subs also have 4X
(25") tubes optimized for the launch of Seal
Team delivery vehicles SDVs. Carriage liners
are provided so that these tubes can also be
used,  as NATO conventional torpedo tubes.


 
Left Popeye I ALCM Air Launch & Right Popeye II
 SLCM Sea Launch Nuclear Ballistic Cruise Missiles


In U.S.A. it has long been speculated by the
CIA and DIA that the 650mm tubes could be
intended for any ballistic missiles armed with
nuclear warheads.  This suspicion was fueled
by two Israeli request for Tomahawk cruise
missiles in 2000.  Tomahawks can have ranges
of over 600 kilometers while nuclear versions
can even fly about 2,500 kilometers.  But the
Clinton administration rejected request twice.
This is why the Israelis developed  ballistic
missiles  of their own design today such as
Popeye Turbo SLCM.  Nuclear carrier type
missiles are readily available in the INS
Dolphins. Contrary to official assumptions,
HDW did build the Dolphin submarines with
newly developed Hydraulic Ejection systems
instead of compressed air ejection system.
This process, water is compressed with a
hydraulic ram which is now state-of-the-art.



Terminal Phase Air Launch    Vertical ICCM Version

Resulting pressure is then used to catapult
weapons out of torpedo shaft. Resulting
momentum is limited, however and it isn't
enough to eject a 3-5 ton midrange missile
out of the ship at least according to insiders.
Not so with lighter weight missiles weigh-
ing up to one ton like the Popeye Turbo or
the American Tomahawk, which weighs
just about that and the nuclear warhead is
included. There are indications that Israelis
wanted to keep open option of future more
voluminous developments in naval warfare.



Popeye II Turbo Latest Long Range Version

Part 5: The German Atomic Question:
           No Questions EQUALS No Problems

The Germans don't want to know anything
about that. "It's clear to each of us, with out
anything being said, that all Dolphins had
been tailored to the needs of the Israelis and
that could also include nuke capabilities,"
says senior German official involved during
the Kohl era. "But in politics there are ques-
tions that it's better not to ask, because the
answer would be a problem. "To this day,
former German FM Genscher & former DM
Volker Ruhle say I do not doubt that Israel
has equipped subs with nuclear weapons.
For their part experts with German military
the Bundeswehr, do not doubt nuclear
capability of the submarines, but they doubt
whether cruise missiles could be made on
the basis of the Popeye Turbo II that could
fly 3,500 km (1,500 mi). Military experts
suggest, that Israeli government is bluffing,
in a bid to make Iran believe that the Jewish
State already has sea-based second strike
capability. The Mossad kidnap the top Iran
nuclear physicist in 2019 w/ CIA assassin-
ated #2 senior expert. That alone has force
Tehran government to commit considerable
resources to defending itself. 1st person to
publicly voice suspicions @German govmnt.
was still supporting Israel in its nuke weapons
program was Gansel, from Kiel. Saying to the
German parliament,"SPD opposed shipments
of submarines suitable for nuclear missions to
the Jewish State," even though Germany itself
has no nuclear weapons.


CLEARLY SQUIRMING
The German government did make at least
one stab at clearing up the nuclear issue.
It's 1988,  DM Sec. Lother Rühl, in a visit
to Israel, asked then DM Ehud Barak what
the "operational & strategic purpose of the
subs were. "We need'em to clear maritime
maneuvering areas," Barak replied. Israeli
mentioned the Egyptian naval blockade of
the Gulf of Aqaba ahead of 6 Day War.
Israelis wanted to be armed against such a
step, he said & it did sound very plausible.
Every German administration been keenly
aware of how explosive these issues are.
When the German Finance Ministry had to
report funds for the 2006 financing of sub
#4 and #5, ministry officials were clearly
squirming. Planned weapons system is"not
very suitable for use of missiles equipped
with nuclear warheads. These submarines
are therefore not being constructed and
equipped for launching nuclear weapons,"
reads a classified document from Finance
Ministry State Secretary Karl Diller to the
Bundestag committee dated Aug. 29, '06.
In other words, the government was saying
that Germany delivered a conventional
submarine and what the Israelis did with it
afterwards was their own business. In1999
Secretary Schulte wrote the German govmt
could not "rule out armament for which an
operating navy has capability, following
appropriate zero-time retrofitting."

WAR OVER WMD: CONFLICT ARAB vs ISRAEL
Conflict between Israel and Iran has intensified
steadily since 2006. War is real danger. leader
ship and Kirya (IDF Pentagon) said never again
and For months Israel has been preparing many
governments around the world as well as the
international public, for a bombing of the nuclear
facilities at Natanz, Fordu and Isfahan using cut-
ting edge conventional, bunker-busting weapons.
PM Bibi Netanyahu and his def min Barak are
convinced that the "window" is now closing which
such an attack would be at all effective  as Iran is
in the process of moving its nuclear enrichment
activities deep below ground.  In the controversial
poem "What Must Be Said"  Gunter Grass said
the submarines, "whose specialty consists in their
ability to direct nuclear warheads toward an area
in which not a single A-bomb / has yet to been
tested," as potentially decisive step towards a
nuclear disaster in the Iranian conflict. Poem got
an international No! Comparing Iran & Israel 'was
not brilliant, but absurd' said German Westerwelle
Netanyahu spoke of an 'absolute scandal' and his
interior minister banned Gunter Grass from enter
Israel. But some people agreed w/ author. Gansel,
the SPD politician, says that Grass has triggered
an important debate, because Bibi's 'talk about
preventive war' touches difficult aspect of inter-
national law.  Reality it's unlikely Israel will use a
submarine in a war with Iran as long as Tehran
doesn't have nukes though Israeli government
has considered using Samson Option on at least
2 occasions in past. Country's military situation
following Egyptian and Syrian surprise attack
during 1973 Yom Kippur War was so desperate
that PM Golda Meir as the Mossad reports has
revealed  'ordered her def min Dayan to prepare
several nukes for combat and deliver them to air
force units' Just before the warheads were to be
armed, tide turned. Israel's forces gained upper
hand on battlefield & the WMD  made their way
back tor hardened deep underground bunkers.

SECOND INCIDENCE
The 1st hours of the '91 Gulf War, an American
satellite registered that Israel had responded to
Iraqi Scuds bombardment by mobilizing its nuke
forces Israeli military analysts had briefly thought
Scuds might be armed with poison gas.It's certain
that Israel would have acted if Scuds came with
nerve gas on residential areas.  Bibi and Iran's
supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei,  definitely
knows just how close world stands today to a new
war. Israeli prime minister & Khamenei have "One
thing in common," says Walther Stützle,  former
state secretary in Germany's Federal DM: 'They'll
resort to conflict as last resort. Israel knows when
it attacks, then Iran slips out of the aggressor role
& into victimhood' UN won't provide mandate that
would legitimize such an attack meaning Israel
would be on her own.  Latest is 2014 to 2015 time
frame an audacious attack by the  IDF-AF of nuke
armed drones, some launched from torpedo tubes
to minimize IDF fatalities & POW's. All while keep-
ing an eye out for Islamic Caliphate encircling the
homeland by over taking Golan Heights, Lebanon,
Jordan, Hamas & Hezbollah in Gaza/Sinai. Shesh!

UNWILLINGNESS TO COMPROMISE 
Dead Israel sympathy doesn't trump a live victor.
Stützle said.  Friendship he now believes, requires
German chancellor to stay Bibi's hand to prevent
him from a last resort to armed attack. Germany's
sworn real obligation is to protect Israel & includes
protecting country embarking on world war type
scenarios. Schmidt went further, before Grass.
"No one dares to criticize Israel out of fear of being
accused of anti-Semitism," former chancellor told
American historian F. Stern. Yet Israel is a country,
Schmidt suggests  "it makes a peaceful solution
very problematic just by virtue of who Israel has
for peace loving neighbors that are all smiles,
pleasantries & Deceit. With 60 yr history of policies
on building settlements  (Gaza, Judea, Samaria).
You might wonder why this issue was only raised
4 yrs ago!  Current chancellor has allowed herself
to essentially taken in by this Israeli point of view.
I wonder whether it's feeling of closeness with
US policies or nebulous moral motives, that led
Chancellor Merkel said in '08 that Germany bears
responsibility for security of State of Israel. From
my point of view, this is a serious exaggeration, 1
that sounds very nearly like type of obligation that
exists within an alliance." Schmidt considers plain
Berlin hasn't business participating in adventurous
policies & he draws clear boundaries: "Germany
has a historic responsibility to make sure that a
crime such as Holocaust never occurs again. On
other hand Germany does not have a 'protectorate'
responsibility for Israel."From start, Merkel viewed
matter differently from her predecessor Schröder,
who had approved delivery of subs number 4 & 5
with options on 6th in his last working day in office
in '05.  With Chancellor Merkel, there wasn't any
doubt that she would do what Israel asked even at
cost of violating Germany's own arms export guide
lines. Rules amended in 2001 by the SPD coalition,
do allow these weapons be supplied to countries
that are not part of the EU or NATO in the case of
"special foreign and security policy interests." But
there's a clear regulation for crisis regions: Rules
state that supplying weapons "is not authorized in
countries that're now involved in conflicts or where
there's a threat of one."There no question that rule
would include Israel. Which didn't stop PM from
making a deal for delivery of sub #6. Merkel was
not deterred  by Bibi saying 'no' to compromise.

#6 Dolphin II Dragon Arrives This Year 2019


Renewing First 3 Dolphins & 3 Super Dolphin II's

Part 6: So Called Deal for Submarine Number 6
or really Rather #7 #8 #9 August 2009, Bibi
had recently been re-elected as PM  as head
of the conservative Likud party and came to
Berlin. Bibi explained to Merkel how important
the submarines were for Israel; that wherever
an Israeli looks North, South, East, there is no
strategic hinterland to work with and only air ,
space & sea to serve as buffer zones. 'We do
need last 3 subs to have 3 subs in each port' 
participants in the meeting say Netanyahu told
Merkel during Berlin visit, coupling request that
Germany cost share these subs, as it had in
previous ones. Israel just completed another
Military Chiefs reassessment in '07 based on
the vast new oil and gas fields discoveries in
2006 and needed to expand both her naval
assets and patrolling capabilities to protect
them making final set of three Dolphins an
imperative and not a luxury. Also 1 each of
original 1990's Dolphin I series would join
two 2 of the newer Super Dolphin II's at each
of 3 Israeli naval bases. Merkels response
has 3 specific requests in exchange.1 Israel
should halt all it's settlement expansion on
conquered '67 Palestinian land & 2 govrnnt
should release tax collections it had frozen
which belong to P.A. National Authority. 3
Israel must allow construction of a sewage
treatment plant in the Gaza Strip funded by
Germany to continue. Critical factor Merkel
addedwas absolute discretion.If details did
leaked out deal came unglued because
resistance from Bundestag too much to over
come. These 2 leaders agreed that German
diplomat Chris Heusgen & Bibi's security
advisor Uzi Arad would work out the details.
Arad can be some what up set at times.

ASKING FOR HELP
Fact was that Arad was supposed to be lead-
ing these negotiations,  delayed the talks over
these subs once again.  In the end Bibi asked
Yoram Ben-Zev, Israel's ambass. to Germany
to help. So Ben-Zev returned to Israel Nov '11.
Standing outside his home in Zahala, Tel Aviv
military residential suburb when his cell phone
rang. It's Jacob Amidror,  Bibi's security adviser.
'Are U sitting down?' he asked. No I'm standing
in my neglected garden Zev replied. Bibi has
one more request, 'Germany is ready to sign
sub deal. U need to go on next flight to Berlin'

Ultimately, Ben-Zev and Heusgen agreed on
the final details over the phone & the contract
was signed on March 2012, at the Israeli amb.
residence in Berlin. Min Barak flew in especially
for the meeting and R. Wolf, state secretary in
Federal Defense Ministry, signed for German
government. Since Israelis had new current
financial problems, Germany made a further
concessions by agreeing to paying $170 million
dollars 1/3 of the sub's cost & to allow Israel to
defer payment of its part until 2015.  But Bibi
dutifully expressed thanks with hand written
letter. Disappointment with in the Chancellery
running high as Bibi has ignored some of
Merkel's requests. Israel settlement policy still
continues unabated & yet progress has been
made on Gaza sewage treatment plant. Then
Israel also released Palestinian tax money.
Merkel reached conclusion there's no point
pushing an euro agenda further to Bibi since
 he is sure not to listen anyway.

MISSED AN OPPORTUNITY
But should the German government take this
as cause to halt sub production? That'll send
Israel a signal that German support comes
with STRINGS, but it would amount to show-
ing less solidarity and that's something Merkel
doesn't want. Chancellor missed an opportun-
ity to use one of the few sources of leverage
the German government has at its disposal to
exercise influence on a Israeli government,
which behaves like occupying power on some
Palestinian territory.   Next submarine, Tannin
was launched May & delivered February 2012.



RAHAV Super Dolphin II Now On Oil Rig Patrol
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9VyYKRGIm4

Rahav Above followed year later in April 2013
with the last in 2nd series of 3 Super Dolphins
is called Dragon now to arrive late 2020, which
happens because of an early build start date
while awaiting IDF-Navy contract negotiations
in 2005. New submarines are especially impor-
tant for Israel because they'll come equipped
with a technological revolution the AIP Fuel
Cell propulsion that allows the subs to work
more quietly than ever for longer times of
extended underwater missions. First Dolphin
class subs had surface every 7 days to start
diesel engines to power up their batteries
for continued underwater travel. Now there's
a new type of propulsion system, which does
not require frequent surface breaks resulting
in vastly improve submarine capabilities.They
will be able to travel underwater four times as
long as the previous Dolphins their fuel cells
allowing them to stay below surface for over
30+ days at a time.  The Persian Gulf off coast
of Iran is now no longer out of operating range
of the Israeli sub fleet & all thanks to the quality
German engineering. In Haifa port Tekumah's
diesel engines have a distinctive low hum, just
loud enough that you carry on a  normal voice
conversation. But once at sea under combat
conditions when the sub is running full combat
operation & all systems are functioning cleanly
"you can hear a pin drop."   The Tekumah can
easily plow through water at speeds over 25 kts,
a sleek and powerful predator. But the real skill,
says the officer, "comes in the low speed ops
carried out near enemy coasts where the Israeli
Navy works covertly and where the Tekuma &
other Dolphins can approach their targets with
 great care and moving gracefully but stealthy
 below the sea as if on  tiptoes.

'THE STORY MADE PUBLIC'
The naval officer sees his submarine as
"One of the places where Israel is being
defended" and his very determined tone
leaves no doubt  he will take what ever
action necessary if he considers his home
land to be under attack. The Israeli Navy
needed the last 3 of these nine German
boats he says. He followed controversy
over the Günter Grass poem and was
surprised by the intensity of the debate.His
family originally came from Nazi Europe
his grandparents managed escape before
the Holocaust,  fleeing the Munich suburb
in 1934 and later becoming part of Israel's
founding generation."We can never forget
past," he says, "but we can do everything
to prevent a new Holocaust." This naval
officer will likely be needed to serve on
board submarines for some time to come.
In Israel, Berlin & Kiel, are all talking about
the fact that the Israelis have now ordered
the 7th 8th & 9th Super Dolphin 3's thus
completing an emerging strategic nuclear
Wolf Pack.


Late Update; the Naval Service now has a
buyer for the original 3 Dolphins for almost
a billion dollars in Services, Products,
Materials as well as cash. This means that
nuclear capabilities & most of sophisticated
electronics would be included. You can
almost expect that at some not too far distant
future date ALL 9 Dolphins will be of AIP
series with even faster dash speeds, further
non stop distances and even much longer
submerged periods.

THE REAL STORY
The key date here is for the contract of the
Second set of 3 Super Dolphins of 2005 &
the order just recently for 3rd set of 3 not
signed until 2012.  2005 was for the 2nd
set of 3 subs & not some lame trumped up
media excuse of 6th Sub.  There followed
an economic wind fall of huge oil and gas
reserves discovered within Israel's territorial
waters that now needed protecting & defend-
ing in 2006. Note by 2006 talk of supposedly
6th sub for a quoted  $1.8 Billion  (which is
ridiculous for a non nuclear powered sub)
because these half billion dollars subs were
always discounted by the  German govern-
ments to about $330 million a piece.

Therefore $1.8 billion    was referring to the
last set of 3 subs. Germany always recom-
mended to all their export customers buy
submarines especially this sophisticated
Dolphin class in sets of 3; one in port while
the other 2 were operational. It should be
pointed out here that any Diesel-Electric
sub cost only a fraction of their big nuke
powered attack Virginia SSN-774 class
US Navy ballistic submarines @1.3 Billion
dollars ea for the next 2020 delivery order
of 30 subs. Also we are talking 40,000 tons
versus 2000 tons for Dolphin 2!  What really
transpired here was 3rd Israeli order for last
3 subs were indeed what was being debated
and finally took till early 2012 to resolve the
financing, Third set of 3 was included in 2006
accords but,for later delivery with times 2022,
2024 & 2026 so would be funded by the new
income streams of fuel exports which came
online 2013. Meanwhile back over at IDF-AF
a transition period was fast approaching F-15I

IDF F-15I RA'AM Thunder  IDF F-16I SUFA Storm

approaching it's F-15I Ra'am (Thunder)
air superiority fighter and the F-16I Sufa
(Storm) tactical interceptor,both of which
are more advanced than even what the
USAF has, was set to be over taken by
1st squadron of Stealth F-35's. By 2006
F-35 arrival was to be 2012. IAF air staff
later in 2012 felt it could hold it's own
against any regional power, pending
arrival of next generation stealth F-35I
fighters in 2016. If interim fix could be
found. This would be more of a match
against Muslim brotherhoods forming
now in Egypt, Gaza, Lebanon or Shiite
Iran and new radical Muslim military take
over's in Syria & Turkey. Don't be surpr-
ise once an ally NATO member changes
with leaking of at least half dozen spy's
names deep inside Iranian government.
who in 2013 immediately hunted down,
tortured & hanged all. Both Lebanon and
Jordan are facing daily challenges by
Muslim Brotherhood & could be toppled
at anytime. Now there are daily estimates
over 200,000 Syrian refugees wandering.
Now President Trump has fired a shot over
Turkish bow with a dire economic conseq-
uence if they attack or interfere Kurdish
allies in Syria !

Israeli Air Force strikes in the Sudan on
Iranian arms dumps during 2012 & 2013
& air strikes on Syrian chemical weapon
depots not being detected were just prolog
for long range stealth penetrations plan on
Iran nuclear weapons facilities late winter
of 2017. In 2019 Sudan wants re-establish
diplomatic ties and even build an Embassy
in Jerusalem! AMAZING! That also means
Sudan can be a remote 'sub base!'
 
Perhaps the most telling example of the IDF
posture had with Dolphin technology was
secret underwater attacks Latakia, Syrian
naval installation amidst a Russian naval
flotilla off shore, by a single Super Popeye
Turbo II SLBM that scored a direct hit on an
entire Syrian inventory of 50 Yakhont P-800
naval attack missiles on July 5, 2013.These
Mach-2 antiship / oil platform  Russian 4 ton
missiles are being challenged in both the
Meko corvettes & SAAR 85 mini corvettes
with the new generation of   "C-HEL"

There's also a 2016 rumor that an upgraded
platform by Rafael developed to replace INS
nuclear SLCM's. Ranges are 1,500 miles,
2,000 miles and now 3,500+ miles!

OR "CHEMICAL" High Energy Laser
So, Questions of just how developed these IAI
new Israeli cruise missiles from Rafael are now,
and Iron Beam series of 500 & 1,000kw twin
beam weapons will be fielded on mobile trucks
and missile boats. If it weren't for the fact that
Obama White House did leak to CNN, then none
would have known what all devastation and
destruction was all about since Israel, Russia,
Turkey and even Syria have denied any know-
ledge about what happened...  NO comment ! 

Systems are mounted on small missile boats,
also Dolphin submarines, armor weapons and
aircraft to include IAF helios or MV-22 Osprey's.

Want proof Obama administration is worried
Israel might go it alone to take out Iranian
nuclear weapons programs,,,

OBFUSCATION
Israel has been known to cloak events,
materials and movements especially
when comes to Israel's small country's
survival, seemingly against the rest of
the world's indifference.  They're 100's
reports some from Israel's own military
publications of a pair of AIP subs that
were negotiated during 2005 signed in
2006 for a delivery early 2010. That
Time-Line seemed very reasonable.
Then its announced in major Israeli
newspapers that both subs had arrived
early and were in-country during 2009
& in the process of being fitted out with
millions of dollars worth of the latest
'Israeli' military sophisticated armament.
These 6 Super Dolphins may Not have
been the expected Tannin - Rahav but,
rather Karish (Shark) & Hatrigon (Sting
Ray). It was also stated around X-mas
2009 in Bahamaneh,"In The Camp" IDF
military magazine, Israel now had 5 on
hand  Dolphin subs total. Then there was
early 2012 launch of SD Tannin which
makes her 7th. Next in '13 Super Dolphin

RAHAV did arrived and could have made
her the 8th Dolphin. 2019 is arrival of 9th
Dolphin called Dragon. That only leaves
last of the wolf pack series - Barracuda
remaining. But I keep seeing only 5 + 1
subs so I chalk this up to wishful thinking
or bad math on some reporters watch! The
next 3 Dolphin III will start arriving in 2024
ostensibly to replace the upgraded but old
original Dolphin I series. Yes, there will be
some overlap with old subs being a slow
selling and replacements quickly arriving!


The Dolphin class ballistic subs makes for
an awesome deterrent 'nuclear  wolf pack'
and a regional naval contender for sea
supremacy. Then when you factor in nuke
war head inventory north of 600, many a
regional enemey may pay a terrible price
for miscalculation and retaliation.  Just how
many of this arsenal is nuclear artillery,
nuclear mines  land, sea, air to ground
attack nuclear weapons, nuclear torpedo
cruise missiles and Jericho III ICBM's has
to keep some potential adversaries awake
for months if not years.  'Walk Softly and
Carry A Big Stick'  is the motto for 2000
century. Rumors circulating is there's a
rushed delivery date for all Wolf Pack SD
to be on station & patrolling those valuable
oil and gas areas by the time these fields
come on line 2015  & reach full production
by 2019 which could change the political
landscape if not the world at least whole
Middle East which seems in a constant
political upheaval, civil war and trampled
human rights.  Not a very good OMEN!

 
Israel Is Now A Net Oil Exporter ! 

Israel will now celebrate Saturday 30 Mar 2013
first day they began self reliance for petroleum
production for all domestic needs as well as a
sizeable export market which challenges the

Why  this massive arms buildup going on?
Because the Winds of War are whipping up
thanks to a new Iran disrupter & war monger

They Are Their Own Worst Enemy !

Paradigm Naval Change .
The smallest and weakest of the Israeli armed
forces, INS Israel Naval Service, found them
selves on the loosing end of any future battles
in the mid 1960's. So they set out to change
this trajectory with the custom purchase of 6 +
another 6 for a total of 12 high speed German
designed enlarged Jaguar patrol boats with 1
big surprise; Missiles. First 7 made it out to
Israel safely but the last 5 of the paid for patrol
boats were embargoed, so on Christmas eve
1969 at 2:30am sped off only to arrive on eve
of New Year day. Here are the before & after

Above the last 5 Haifa arrival. Below now ready for war

Here Israel Navy Saar I, II and III

THEN Comes 2020 Saar VI Stealth Corvettes
First they were Ordered, went on Hold, then
were back ON, then Off. You Following? OK,
now ON once again, back OFF & ON? Wait,
there's no money! Then late in Oct. 2014 
German Government OK'd the 30% INS
discount on all 4 MEKO CSL Stealth Cor-
vettes  for the new gas and oil EEZ fields
off the Haifa  - Jaffa coasts. The 4 ships will
be delivered by the year  2021with all state-
of-the-art local Hi-Tech sophisticated EW. 
First, INS Magen arrives in home port Haifa.

Now Enter Israel Navy SAAR M-Corvettes
At over 50+ knots and 250' in length; a very
quick trip around the horn would be a most
unpleasant surprise, you would think, for any
would be hostile enemy state or neighbor
wouldn't it? So now we have this contender
to contend with: ISL  Israel Naval Shipyards  
                              SAAR-72
(more precisely Not the coast guard OPR
variant) but a revolutionary new Israeli Mini
Naval Stealth Corvette version that is called:
                               SAAR-85   
Meaning 85 meters (± 280') length named
after Israeli popular naval  series of Surface

Rafael and Israel Naval Staff are developing
USV Hybrid Above enlarging Protector from
9 meters to 11m and boosting speeds from
50mph to  60+ mph in sea state 3 waters. 
They are adding Sea Spotter tech that has
ground breaking technology enabling high
reliability detection of any naval threat and
itself remains totally stealthy while emanating
no radiation signature at all to enemy forces
or their concomitant radars. They are assign
to port daily operations/combat duty off coast
of Gaza & deployable from Saar V,  SAAR-85

GAME CHANGER - R. M. A. by Gideon Afek
As Israel contemplates the simmering
neighborhood that seems yet again, as
volatile as ever, there is an issue of great
economic & military significance that's
cooking within the Israeli defense estab-
lishment. So from time to time, signs of
it boil over into the public discourse,
usually following some media initiative.
It's not yet recognized, but this is taking
place in the earliest stages of a global
Revolution in Military Affairs.

It regards Israel’s purchase of the F-35I
Stealth JSF Joint Strike Fighter.  This is
newest generation of Western fighter
planes, promising all sorts of vast impro-
vements & advantages,  amongst them,
radar evading “stealth” technology. The
F-35 is last word in Western aerospace
technology and one may go on and on
describing all its various bells & whistles
which are cutting edge. F-35I Adir can be
equipped with a wide variety of systems,
many of which are optional and customer
specific. These systems influence price of
aircraft with Israel to cost around $150
million dollars per aircraft.

The aircraft is designed to replace several
different types of aircraft and the United
States has intention of buying over 2400
of them, with several other countries in-
vested heavily in the development and
procurement. Program is said to be now
running at twice original projected cost
at $400+ billion, according to the US
GAO. It's also way overdue by up to five
years late & counting with numerous yet
unsolved technical problems. Costs are
not under control and development is still
far from complete. Despite this, aircraft
has been put into production. For many of
those countries invested, all of their fighter
eggs have been placed into one basket as
currently no other Western “5th Generation”
a/c fighter now available or under develop-
ment with the exception of Japans possible
project. The US had a viable alternative in
the form of the F-22 Raptor an extremely
impressive aircraft so secret that a law was
passed forbidding its export to any ally or
country. It is superior in many performance
parameters to F35. Production terminated
after only 187 aircraft. Had it remained in
low rate production US would have had an
alternative to F-35 that is in many ways
superior, at roughly the same cost. POTUS
Obama killed F-22 program &in July 2009
threatened to Veto the entire F-35 project,
if F-22 wasn't cancelled. Final aircraft rolled
off the line in 2011. F-35 is already to start
equipping training squadrons in  US even
though development hasn't been completed

Numerous problems beset aircraft, mainly
Helmet Mounted Display System, bad soft
ware, maintenance costs as well as variety
other unsolved snags. Flight test program
far from complete & without doubt, issues
will continue to arise as it progresses, thus
delaying operational readiness and inflating
the spiraling price tag. Israel’s involvement
with this program is a story unto itself.Israel
refrain from joining program as a Tier 1-2-3
partner, mainly due to requirement to invest
billions of dollars in development and thus
forgoing any rights to determine any aircraft
configurations, integration of local weapons
or avionic systems or participation in produc-
tion. When officials in the IAF and defense
ministry woke up to this reality, they embarked
on a vociferous and loud campaign  to turn
back the wheel, but got in return critical local
EW, state-of-the-art weapons systems and co-
production rights with all wing assemblies.
811 sets in fact. This campaign was successful
and in an impressive achievement, not only
will unique Israeli systems and weapons be
integrated into the Israeli F-35I Adirs, but,
local industries will receive huge share of the
production of the planes. Cost is exorbitant
at almost $3 billion of  $14 billion defense
budget going to buy the first squadron of 20
planes. In all countries that are planning  to
order the aircraft, debates rage as to whether
the purchase should go ahead, mainly due to
the high cost. Countries like Canada, have
reopened their new fighter selection prgrm,
Netherlands has withdrawn its commitment
to buy the F-35 and Italy has down sized its
order. Within Israel it is not clear to what
extent this debate exists as much of it occur-
red behind closed doors, though several rele-
vant news articles have appeared in the press.
On the one hand the aircraft is the most ad-
vanced in world, has stealth characteristics
and gives Israel an unprecedented edge that
maybe only Turkey in the region is foreseen
to possess.  It'll be a key component in  IAF
during the initial days of any conflict, when
the air defense systems of the enemy need to
be tackled first, to allow any Air Superiority
be gained an then  Air Dominance. Fact that
the F-35 is part of the IAF order of battle has
enormous deterrent value. Even radar techno-
logy is also developing full stealth advantage
is only expected to last unchallenged for 5 -
10 years, after which aircraft will rely more
& more on its electronic warfare EW systems
for protection. Aircraft is only stealthy when
its weapons are stored internally, allowing for
a very limited weapons load. When additional
weapons are carried externally stealth advan-
tage is lost &  aircraft carries some 5000 lbs
less ordnance than veteran IAF version F-15I
for a much significantly shorter range. Combat
radius on internal fuel is given at 580nm, while
F-15I does just under 800. Some assert that the


 4.5
generation” Sukhoi Su-30 and Su-35 can over
come F-35s, but that is unproven talk.Currently
no Arab air force comes close to challenging
the IAF even without the F-35I. Saudi Arabia
& Egypt have large & modern fleets of aircraft,
but these are unlikely to meet the IAF in battle.
In any event Israelis enjoy a large advantage
in abilities of their air crews. Looking at cost
of aircraft, one can only wonder what future
holds for the IAF. According to foreign sources,
the IAF has some 226 F-16C/D, F-16I aircraft
& 25 F-15I’s. These a/c are multi role fighters
capable of air-to-air / air-to-ground missions,
just like the F-35.  Oldest were acquired in
the 1980's &  will be due for replacement in
the next decade or so. In addition they're some
150 older F-16's & F-15's  mainly used in the
air-to-air role & these are some forty years old
and more.  If IAF was to replace all of these
without reducing its numerical strength, some
400 high performance jets must be bought,
with the only candidates being the F-35& any
unmanned UAV stealthy drones. Cost could
be astronomical but with the new giant Oil &
Gas fields now coming on line, there is now
funding hope. Obviously a much different
solution is now needed. This is approaching
Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) which
is arriving. RMA is defined by the US Army
War College as “a major change in nature of
warfare, brought about by the innovative
application of new and newer technologies
that combined with dramatic changes in
military doctrine, operational &organizational
concepts, fundamentally alters the character
and conduct of war.

The Revolution in Military Affairs consists of
four warfare areas Information, Dominating
Maneuver, Precision Strike & Space Warfare.
In this case we are specifically talking about
field of Precision Strike. In all probability, role
of manned strike aircraft will increasingly be
taken over by Unmanned Aerial Systems  &
surface-to-surface precision guided ordnance.
In very recent times dramatic changes have
been taking place in the field of precision
guided artillery, rockets, mortars. Artillery,
rockets and mortars have always been a
statistical weapon, that's, for a target to be
struck, a number of rounds now need to be
fired, usually involving a complicated series
of time consuming corrections until required
accuracy is achieved. Now with the advent
of GPS guided ammunition, it is possible to
strike an unobserved target with one single
round. Components that can largely replace
manned strike aircraft are the rocket and
cruise missile. Hamas, Hezbollah,  ISIL Islamist
radicals have reverted to use of very cheap
rockets, as result of their spectacular lack of
success in the operation of piloted aircraft &
naval ships. These have been in the form of
anything from the crude Qassam rockets, Scud
and El-Hussein ballistic missiles fired by Iraq
in the '91 Gulf War. Large ballistic missiles
typically had an accuracy (known as CEP,
Circular Area of Probability) of between
3000 to about 100m. Just to demonstrate
where all this is heading, the Chinese have
recently adapted a ballistic missile to the
role of lethal aircraft carrier killing ordnance
by coupling it with precision guidance system
in the form of the DF-21 Anti-Ship Ballistic
Missile. The advantages of such missiles are
that no aircrew are endangered, they are all
relatively cheap. Their disadvantages are that
while a manned aircraft can be used for many
thousands of sorties,  a rocket can only be used
- ONCE. Therefore a very large quantity must
be bought and maintained. They are also very
vulnerable before launch & when in storage.
Rockets are largely dependent on the GPS
network which isn't controlled by Israel. For
full control, Israel would have to develop  &
launch several new technology Tec-Star type
satellites of its own.  Despite drawbacks, the
case is very strong.   Imagine with what ease
Israelis could strike at Iran with absolutely no
risk to air crew, when using ballistic missiles
with conventional 2 ton warheads & pinpoint
accuracy against hardened targets. This would
be more effective than any manned strike, as
aircraft typically don't carry such heavy war
heads. The IDF can largely replace its manned
strike aircraft with a force of rockets& ballistic
missiles of various sizes. This involves a large
investment in infrastructure as well as a sig-
nificant expansion of the navy as a launch plat-
form. The navy must be exploited for this as
tiny Israel doesn't possess depth to adequately
hide a large force of rockets & missiles. Air to
air mission will in all likelihood remain partly
a mission for manned aircraft together with a
force of Drones and  advanced surface to air
missiles. Close Air Support, EW recon a/c
will probably move to UAV, leaving only the
various transport roles to manned aircraft.
These changes are relevant to air forces world-
wide  and as aircraft become unaffordable and
technology ripens, the era of manned air forces
is about to pass. This will be the next RMA &
and it is closer than many believe. Militaries
are almost always deeply conservative org.'s
and often resist change. IAF carries immense
prestige and political clout within the defense
establishment. It is unclear at what rate the
decision makers in the IAF will embrace such
change if at all & it is also unclear at what rate
will other defense establishment decision
makers accept such change.  Will it be very
gradual and therefore costly or will it be taken
up quickly? Many political & personal factors
will be involved here and therefore it is very
difficult to say. It basically involves a massive
downsizing of budget & manned component
of the IAF & it's likely that there will be great
resistance to any such a development. The US
military aid, spent in the United States, for
Israel will also be an obstacle. It dulls incentive
of finding a more cost effective solution to the
strike capabilities of the IDF. They're also those
within US military industrial complex who'll
not welcome reduction or cessation of this kind
of funding. There's very little justification for
buying more than two squadrons of F-35I's that
is until the bad Iran deal in July 2015, with an
offer of a bonus free squadron plus funding of
the Ospry & C-130J new purchases. Indeed,
only argument that many components (mainly
wing sets) are planned to be manufactured in
Israel and in order to earn this work, numbers
will be bought up. Bottom line is however
that the F-35 is too expensive to fully re-equip
the IAF & newer technologies offer drastically
cheaper and more effective solutions. What is
required in order to lead this revolution within
Israeli defense establishment is a strong leader
who'll be capable of navigating process while
resisting any pressure both from U.S, mainly
Lockheed Martin, the government, possibly
Boeing & the Israeli Air Force.  With some
foresight & exploitation of technology,  it's
possible to save the country billions  of $,
while not compromising any of its military
 strength or deterrence.

THIS JUST IN DEPARTMENT...
 

The Israel Navy just divulged all of
the secret upgrades to the original
3 Dolphin subs from the 1990's.

NextGen Ultra Dolphin IV Series In
Israel for The 2030's & Beyond
.

Digital Sonar devices developed by
Rafael improves all Dolphin I, II & III
submarines' detection and Fighting
Capabilities.



Super Dolphin II Concept

Also a newer,  quieter,  longer range
and powerful Heavy Torpedo Kaved
has just been developed for the entire
Dolphin Wolf Pack fleet.

 

A new sonar system developed by the Israel
navy & Rafael Advanced Defense Systems
significantly improves detection capabilities
of Israel's fleet of Dolphin submarines. The
development of the new sonar took 3 years,
and it has been installed on all the navy's
new submarines for the past two years.

Another submarine, the INS Rahav was added
to Israel's fleet at the beginning of the year,
bringing its total to five submarines. German
company HDW supplied the vessel. Sixth sub
is to arrive 2020 in Israel. The sub's cost is
$350 million, making it the most expensive
single weapon in the IDF. Previous foreign
reports said that these submarines were now
capable of carrying missiles armed with nuke
warheads, thereby providing Israel with 2nd
strike capability if under a nuclear attack.

Up until two years ago, the navy's submarine
missions were based on the German sonar
systems. Under cover of strict secrecy, the
Israel navy described to Rafael engineers its
current needs asked for a new sonar device
capable of upgrading its submarines' stealth
detection & fighting capabilities. It all comes
from need, Israel Navy underwater combat
systems section head Lt Colonel Tal explained
to Globes. "We analyzed past things that's hap-
pened to us & learned about cases in which
various vessels were in vicinity of our subs,
which did not notice them in real time. The
proximity of subs to those vessels was only
discovered in debriefings."

Eyes and ears

Sonar systems are a submarine's eyes and ears.
Systems are built to detect noise and voices
coming from various occurrences both above
& below surface, so that occurrences can be
analyzed & turned into ops information. Every
sub has sonar systems analysts who have
received lengthy & complex special training in
Israel Navy sub courses. Another sub' class is
graduating now on this new Sonar detection.

Constantly wearing their earphones, the
sonarist job is to monitor noises and translate
them into information. At sea, almost anything
produces a unique noise. Sonarist connect
sounds, which are sometimes quite irritating,
to the type of activity occurring nearby: trade
ships' engines, dolphins, unmanned vessels,
warships & even infrastructure laid on the sea
bottom. In a submarine, you cannot just hear a
noise, open a window, and see exactly what is
really going on outside.

The new sonar is operated on Dolphin subs
together with original sonar systems installed
on them when they were supplied to the navy
by the German manufacturer. The algorithms
used in the sonar systems enable it to ignore
many of the noises that can disrupt the range
of the systems' activity, while detecting very
distant noises, which German sonar systems
are unable to do. The expanded ranges that
new sonar systems provide to the Israeli subs
are very significant, compared with coverage
up till now provided by the German state-of-
the-art sonar systems used by NATO teams.
"Under conditions of a submarine in combat,
there is no time. We have a saying that who
ever detects the threat first is the one to attack
& destroy the other side, Tal says. "The new
sonar increases our detection rate by 40%
thereby enabling us to neutralize noises that
 interfere with subs work."

According to Tal, the new capabilities provided
to the Dolphin submarines by the Israeli sonar
include detection of vessels with a low noise
signature. This means that with the new sonar,
even vessels equipped w/ advanced ultra quiet
engines will be detected very quickly by these
sonarist monitoring occurrences in the area in
which their submarine is operating. "In case
of vessels with a low noise signature, so we are
not talking about trade ships, because parties
engaging in trade don't invest large amounts
on lowering noise signature emitted by vessels
equipped with advanced & up-to-date engines.
We are talking about other types of vessels. A
submarine with the new sonar will also detect
another submarine first and start following it
long before other submarine's crew realizes
that it has been detected,    if it ever does!
