i24 News – Israeli defense technology company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems has unveiled the “Sea Breaker” long-range missile system capable of hitting targets at a distance of 186 miles.

The fifth-generation autonomous, precision-guided missile can be launched from naval platforms at sea or from ground-based launchers.

“Sea Breaker was developed in order to fill an operational gap in maritime dominance and deep land strike systems ‒ all in a single platform,” Rafael’s website states.

The system is equipped with an advanced IIR (Imaging Infra-Red) seeker, making it capable of hitting stationary or moving targets day or night in all weather conditions.
