INS Sufa

The INS Sufa ( סופה , Storm) is a Sa'ar 4.5-class missile boat of the Israeli Navy, built by Israel Shipyards Ltd. and commissioned in May 2003 making it the newest ship in the fleet.

The ship is not the first to use this name, named after the previous Sa'ar 3-class missile boat who was the commanding ship at "Operation Noa" which escaped the reaming 5 boats (including itself) from Cherbourg (France) during the French embargo at 1969.
