Israeli Death Shark (Terrorists Beware)

[Media Source*]

(Israel News Agency) In the most recent unveiling the Israel Navy has now deployed a speedboat drone capable of reaching enemy targets hundreds of miles from Israel shores.

The unmanned speedboat is equipped with a remote-controlled machine gun capable of being operated with laser accuracy up to a range of 50 kilometers, reportedly the first of its kind in the world.

Israel is deploying these "Death Sharks" in order to counter suicide bombers (in boats) that have been a plague to the Israeli navy. Israel has deployed hundreds of these mini navel drones throughout the Mediterranean sea as well as the Middle East and the commanders have even admitted that these battle drones have even "tasted blood."

(Israel News Agency) The "Death Shark" will most definitely be used to protect and escort Israel's merchant marine fleet and civilian vessels in both the Middle East and throughout the world, say analysts. It was most probably used during Israel disengagement from Gaza, where it quietly neutralized terrorists both on land and in the water attempting to disrupt Israel's unilateral peace move.

The machine gun is a mini-Typhoon type, also developed by Rafael. The Typhoon system allows the gun to stay on target as the unmanned surface vehicle (USV) bounces across the waves. Developers said the pilot of the vessel would be an Israel Defense Forces officer. This officer would most likely be a trained field intelligence professional cooperating with Israel military, Shabak (domestic security) and the Mossad.

The Death Shark should prove to be a valuable resource against a navel invasion and help compensate the tiny nation for the lack of submarines within its fleet (currently Israel has three subs although they are requesting two additional ones from either Germany or the US). Not only can these drones read a license plate ten miles away but can be easily deployed alongside the coasts of Iran, Saudi Arabia and Syria without being detected.

Although the Death Shark's original intent is to defend Israeli waters, they may prove as a useful deterrence against Iran and Syria just in case they do not take America's threat seriously.
