Description: Gabriel is a subsonic, sea-skimming, anti-ship missile developed by IAI for the Armed Forces of Israel. Flying at low altitude sea-skimming missiles try to evade radar detection to achieve a direct hit on target without being intercepted by ship's air defenses. Its guidance system relies on I-band radar homing head. Gabriel can be powered by either solid propellant rocket motor or liquid fuel turbojet. The liquid fuel variant has a maximum range of 60 km.

Originally, Gabriel was intended to be fired from ship but ultimately IAI provided Gabriel with the facility to be fired from airborne platforms such as combat aircraft. It saw combat for the first time during 1973 war giving Israel Navy an unprecedented capability. Gabriel III is an upgraded version of Gabriel which was introduced in 1982. Gabriel missile is used by the Israel Navy and Air Force.
