    One of the better parts in that video that George posted of the Gowind assembly in Egypt is actually a couple of parts besides the entire video of the sections being put together is the part where they had to insert what I believe is one of 2 propeller shafts. That is such precision work with very large and heavy material with no margin for error whatsoever otherwise it creates a vibration that results in a very bad destruction! lol. The other part was at the end for a while I could never figure out what that yellow mini sub thing that they lowered from the stern until I realized it's the towed sonar. At least that's what it seems to make the most sense.

    Yes it's Captas towed sonar ,variable depth one to detect submarines at deeper depths at Sea State 6 .The ship also has other hull monted sonar at the bottom which detects subs and mines at close depths .

    Very cool Mr. Ahmedfire.  That looks more like a Meko than a Gowind but I bet the latter has the same technology, especially the towed sonar as it was clearly shown in a quick clip in one of the videos.

    The other thing that is crazy that they must do periodically as part of an organized maintenance program is even with all that bottom paint against marine growth, it's still not 100% effective (ask me how I know lol) and the frogmen who have to clean the bottoms of these ships periodically have to be careful around those hull-mounted sonars especially when scraping those ever so annoying barnacles.
