    Yes since the 1990s.

    If by "pilots" you mean navigators/weapon officers, so yes. But I'm not entirely sure there are female actual combat pilots.

    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.
