    Nice photos. How come the IDF does not expand their naval forces? With weapon systems like Barak-8 AAD Gebrial AshM, I'd expected Isreal to be a maritime force. They should create an DDG or atleast an frigate.

    If I'm not mistaken there was a female combat pilot or even two, on combat helicopters maybe?

    The IN has no force projection for mission. During decades, it had for role to protect the shores and the waterways that lead to Israel. In this mission, it can be assisted by the IAF.
    In the last decade, the its underwater component was mostly strengthened. It has 4 Dolphin subs and 2 more in construction in Germany.
    The Saar 5 are lighter than a frigate, but they are heavily armed and have a significant firepower. In the last years, the navy wanted to acquire 2-4 frigates but had no sufficient budget. There were reports that a deal is negotiated for the construction of 4 frigates by South Korea; they will be equipped with Israeli weapons and systems.

    There are a few females who have active flying roles in the IAF, but don't expect anymore information than this.

    Is the Israeli Navy looking to expand it's "Blue Water'' capability?

    Question for our Israeli friends.

    Is the Israeli Navy more of a "Green Water" force? Or combination of both Green and Blue water capabilities?

    The new boats will probably be more blue as their mission is to protected the Gas Rigs recently completed.

    I would say green-water for sure.

    Most navies around the world are green-water. The only pure blue-water navy is the US Navy; highly doubtful that the UK or France could sustain meaningful blue-water ops with their current financial issues.

    Happy new years everyone and thank you to everyone that contributes to this post, I have really enjoyed reading through them. I wanted to ask if anyone has seen or knows if someone who wears glasses can serve in any of the sayerot, not just matkal or s13 but the other units such as tzanchanim palser? I have looked and looked for photos but never been able to get any info.

    Depends on the prescription and eye issues. If it's just minor eye problems then you can serve. If you have other eye issues, it's a problem. I believe I was told that -3.00 was the cutoff.

    I hope you're not considering joining palsar tzanchanim. Just the thought of all of that tzahov makes me ill over the internet.

    I just might be haha, I wear glasses but not a very strong prescription so I guess we shall have to see what my health profile ends up being. I am very interested in Tzanchanim and just recently started looking more into their sayerot.

    Well, if serving alongside of tzihubim malshanim who have no problem stabbing a fellow unit member in the back is your speed, go for it. Personally, I enjoyed actually being able to avoid the majority of tochnim tziyrut, but hey, some people enjoy mitbach/shin-gimmel for the first two and a half years of the army.

    I just checked through some pictures of sayeret tzanchanim and there are a few glasses in the pictures. I can't tell you what their eye problems are, but they most certainly have glasses on their face.

    I definitely do not like the sound of back stabbing. I just want to serve in a more elite unite alongside others wanting to work as hard as myself to protect the people of Israel. I've always dreamt of Tzanchanim and now am seriously thinking of trying to really strive to make it into one of the sayerot
