As part of a cooperation agreement signed between Israel and Honduras in 2016, Israel Shipyards has delivered an offshore patrol vessel to the Honduras Navy.

The OPV 62M recently departed from Israel and is expected to arrive in Honduras next month, according to a report by the Honduran newspaper La Prensa.

The ship, named General José Trinidad Cabañas, is equipped with Rafael Spike missiles, a TechMer communications system, and a Terma radar system.

Additionally, the Honduras Navy will receive two more remote-controlled weapon stations for existing vessels from Elbit Systems.
