0

The Israeli Navy has successfully completed two years of trials of the Sea Knight made by Rafael – an unmanned vessel that can be controlled from shore or from a ship at sea, Ynet reports.

The trials included the first time a remotely controlled, unmanned, operational vessel has fired missiles.

The Sea Knight can patrol for 12 hours straight and reach a speed of up to 40 knots (74 kph-46 mph).

The vessel has remotely controlled machine guns as well as water cannon against rioters approaching on boats.

“We will establish a very powerful unit of Sea Knights,” a naval officer said.
