The Saudi Navy launched the first Couach boats with special armament



It is equipped with a 20mm cannon in the front, a 70mm guided missile platform and a 12.7mm rear cannon

It can conduct combat operations with high efficiency against hostile naval targets (suicide boats or hostile boats in large quantities), as well as anti-piracy and smuggling activities.

The ship's crew consists of 8 people and has the ability to stay on remote operations for up to 5 days..

It is worth noting that Saudi Arabia has requested 12 koash boats to arm the Saudi private in partnership with Korea..

This number will give the Western Fleet the ability to deal and engage with hundreds of hostile and suicide boats, as well as enable the Western Fleet to carry out reconnaissance, surveillance and interception of smuggling operations and maritime piracy within the scope of the fleet's operations (the Red Sea, Bab al-Mandab and the Gulf of Aden).

Watching the K-LOGIR missile system on the Saudi Couach boat, it seems that it will be the first line of defense as it can deal with speedboats as they sail..


Memorandum of Understanding with IMI shipyard to localize different types of boats
