Israel’s Rafael Unveils Sea Breaker Long-Range Missile System
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.
Sea Breaker is a “naval and artillery unit-force-multiplier,” Rafael said in a statement, adding that the system utilizes Rafael’s “legacy of high-end precision-guided solutions.”
A video released by Rafael shows a simulated launching from a ship and a vehicle, demonstrating the missile’s agility. The video shows how the missile can fly at low altitudes, following the terrain or skimming the water, evading enemy detection systems and hitting high-value targets with maximum force and precision.
