    Land-based anti-aircraft missile systems on Egyptian ships such as Mistral

    During the joint French-Egyptian naval exercises "Cleopatra 2017" held from 8 to 11 July 2017. On the L 1020 Anwar El-Sadat (Mistral-type) landing ship that took part in them, the Egyptian Navy saw an original air defense system in the form of four ships loaded onto the flight deck and the infantry combat vehicles of the US land-based short-range antiaircraft missile system Boeing AN / TWQ-1 Avenger (using Raytheon FIM-92 Stinger anti-aircraft missiles).

    Egypt received a second submarine built in Germany

    August 8, 2017 in Kiel, Germany, the ceremony of transferring to Egypt's Navy of the second built for them at the shipyard Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), a part of the German association ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS), diesel-electric submarine S 42 project 209 / 1400Mod (Egyptian board number "862", building number 448). It is reported that the boat will soon leave for Egypt and arrive in Alexandria tentatively in three weeks. This boat became the 66th submarine of the family of the project 209, built in the world since 1970.



    An intergovernmental agreement with Germany on the construction of two submarines for Egypt of the project 209 / 1400Mod for Egypt was signed in November 2011, the contract value is 920 million euros, while the construction is largely carried out against the loan guarantees issued by the German government for the amount of 700 million euros. The practical implementation of the agreement was somewhat delayed because of the political events of recent years in Egypt. In 2014, an intergovernmental agreement was concluded on the construction of two more submarines of the same type for Egypt by 2021. The construction of all four boats is carried out by HDW at the shipyard in Kiel.

    The 209/1400Mod submarines under construction in Egypt are equipped with a traditional diesel-electric power plant. The head Egyptian submarine, by agreement of 2011, S 41 (Egyptian airborne number 862, building number 448) was launched in Kiel on December 10, 2015, entered the factory road trials on July 25, 2016 and was transferred to the Egyptian Navy in Kiel 12 December 2016. Boat S 41 arrived in Egypt in Alexandria on April 19, 2017.
    The second Egyptian submarine of this type S 42 was launched on December 5, 2016 and entered the factory test trials in March 2017.

    It is reported that 533-mm torpedoes DM2A4 / SeaHake mod 4 have been ordered by Egypt from the German company Atlas Elektronik as the main armament of these submarines. The boats will also be armed with US anti-ship missiles Boeing UGM-84 Harpoon Block II.

    In 2016, there were reports of negotiations between the governments of Germany and Egypt regarding the possibility of ordering Egypt by two or even four submarines of this type.
