IAI (not IAF) won a Finnish tender for the supply of Gabriel V anti-ship missiles.

Not much is known about them, except for what IAI wrote here shortly:

http://www.iai.co.il/2013/34406-36714-en/BusinessAreas_NavalSystems_AdvancedNavalAttackMissile.aspx

 

In its early history, it had quite a glorious combat record, sinking practically the entire Syrian and Egyptian navies in 1973. However these early variants were later withdrawn and replaced with Harpoon missiles.

Interestingly, the Harpoons in Israeli service are very old and Israel chose not to have them upgraded, possibly implying they are making the switch to Gabriel missiles.

Indeed, recently the Gabriel V missiles were test fired from Israeli naval vessels but no information was made public.

 

Perhaps now we will get a better view on things.

Only seeing this in one source, but would be pretty crazy if true; http://www.janes.com/article/81584/argentina-considers-resuming-nuclear-submarine-project

 

Restarting construction of a boat that you started building in the 1980s and sticking your first naval nuclear reactor in it seems dumb even for Argentina.
