This short communication presents a research update of a new low nickel maraging steel, Fe–12.94%Ni–1.61%Al–1.01%Mo–0.23%Nb (wt%). Its yield stress and the tensile strength are 1080 MPa and 1180 MPa, respectively, after ageing treatment. Tensile specimens show ductile fracture. Fractography demonstrated deep dimples. Impact energy is 22 J on half-size specimens.
