    No disgrace out there , the canal team worked as per a protocol in such cases and they have succeeded .

    I don't know what this has to do with that train accident but anyway they are working on a new transportation projects including upgrading infrastructure , trucks,signaling systems ,new railway lines, 23 b$ high-speed rail network for 1000 km  , new underground metro lines ,monorail project, 10000 km of roads which will serve the new 14 new city being built including the new capital .

    They need to widen it along its entire length, for 2 way traffic.
    Will the EverGiven story change the entire global economy and logistics?

    The Ever Given is on its way and the crew are reflecting on lessons learned.

    The tugboats are back on duty guarding world trade.

    The Government is reflecting on the risks of high sided ships in the canal.

    I think that you are joking, but it annoys me to see over and out in the same line, especially since this is a military forum.
    In radio communication over means that you are finished speaking AND that you are expecting a reply, while out means that you are ending the communication and that you are NOT expecting a reply.

    Putting them together would just confuse the other person, since it is not clear if you want a reply or not.

    Chinese manufacturers, exporters and shipping firms whose vessels and consignments are still stuck in the logjam of the Suez Canal are scrambling to find detours for their wares. This is despite news on Monday that the Egyptian operator of the waterway has freed the container ship which ran aground and stymied intercontinental trade flow a week ago.

    You're right to a certain extent but mostly wrong since that entry way is a concrete barrier that needs delicacies  and not so often dredging,  Check pic of converted shore which Egyptian quotiety didn't hesitate one bit to destroy and et pub a bulldozer immediately.  


    Granted I'm a smalltime seaman with onmy a 30 foot Chaparral but that must have been much more than wind to push that thing over and why destroy our banks for the sake of a dumbass captain not controlling his prop power and rudder.

    The rest of the bank is GORGEOUS and the Eatern side is mostly left untouched so we cans show tousirts the devastation we put on Israhell inqi73,  Check out the pics on google

    You know that the Israhellis practiced ones in 1957 and also war of attrition which was a stalemate since they couldn't believe our pilots in MiG-17s and 21 challenges their A4s and F-4 Phantoms not to mention our hidden Sams.

    The defensive network for all around country protection is unreal and 1000x better than what they're capable of offering as offensive weapons.  Once we get out GORGROUS Su-35SE I hope with the 260kh range 37M, they'll NEVER dream of such bold ideas lol.  

    Besides, let's face it, Israel is actually an economic partner which just gave us $15B to liquidate their gas.  Why would they suicided attack us lol?

    Laughing It was a Dutch company with some bluewater tugs which finally got the ship free. The other tugs were some motorised canoes with a lot of horns and screaming crews and a silly excavator trying to dig out a 15 meter draft ship Laughing Laughing Laughing

    From first hand, although a long time ago, when it was praying time the Egyptian pilot was rolling out his praying carpet and started praying, leaving the 200+ mtr ship in the hands of the captain. You have to set your priorities.....

    @11E

    There were 11 Egyptian tugboats along with the two of Dutch tugboats .

    This excavator is not silly , it was a part of the work by removing the near mud on the front of the ship untill they brought dredgers in and dug 30,000 cubic metres of sand from beneath the ends of the ship.

    Saudis helped Egypt only on the last revolution because they are against Muslim Brotherhood but those projects are being funded by Egypt's own budget ,Saudis have their own financial problems now ,they can't fund such mega projects and they have no reason to do that .

    Although the photo is somehow misleading as you can see on the below zoomed photo but urban areas  were always a headache on Egypt .

    Suez Canal block March 2021 - Page 2 Tad_ky10


    On the last 5 years ,many of these areas were completely removed and replaced by a well planned and organized areas providing low income citizens with affordable housing with complete furnature for free or with a symbolic price .

    The Below photos for developed areas ,before and after .Also Egypt is building around 20 new city with a capacity of 30 million of people .
