Detailing the development and operational history of the INS Dabur (PC 860) Dabar-class Coastal Patrol Craft.  Entry last updated on 7/27/2017; Authored by Staff Writer; Content ¬©www.MilitaryFactory.com

The INS Dabur (PC 860) was the lead ship in her class. Classified as a patrol craft, the system saw the first dozen vessels constructed in the United States with the rest taken over by Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) in Israel. The ship and her sisters saw extensive use in the Israeli Navy for over 30 years with action in the 1973 Yom Kipper War. As offensive platforms, the Dabur proved her worth in high speed attacks on Egyptian naval forces of similar or lesser size operating in the Mediterranean.

The design of the Dabur-class went on to influence a generation of Israeli-designed boats to come. She featured a superstructure set about midship and was crewed by nine personnel. Her armament included twin 20mm Oerlikon cannons (one mounted forward and one mounted aft), 2 x 12.7mm (.50 caliber) heavy machine guns, 2 x 324mm torpedo tubes for the Honeywell-brand Mk 46 torpedo and depth charges. In any case, the vessel was primed to attack most vessels through her varied armament types. Power was derived from twin General Motors diesel engines powering 2 x propeller shafts.

The Dabur could reach a top speed of 29 knots in ideal conditions. The system also served (and may continue to do so) in other navies of the world including Argentina, Nicaragua and Chile. Armament may differ between the types based on need. The Dabur-class as a whole was relieved of operational duty in the Israeli Navy by the Dvora-class ships.
