The first submarine of the 209 / 1400Mod project has been transferred to Egypt.

According to the blog, 19 April 2017, the first diesel-electric submarine S 41 project 209 / 1400Mod, intended for the naval forces of Egypt, arrived in the port of Alexandria. It was built at the shipbuilding enterprise Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), which is part of the German association ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS).

This delivery was made in accordance with the construction contract for Egypt of two submarines of the 209 / 1400Mod project, signed in the 2011 year. Financing is carried out on account of loan guarantees issued by the German government for 700 million euros. In 2014, a new agreement was signed on the construction of two more submarines of this type. The construction of all four boats is HDW at the shipyard in Kiel. It is possible that the Egyptian series will be continued with the construction of two or even four submarines. Since 1970, the 64 submarines of the 209 project family have been built. The transfer of the second submarine to Egypt is scheduled for the end of 2017.

Egyptian submarines project 209 / 1400Mod equipped with a traditional diesel-electric power plant. The main armament is ordered by the German company Atlas Elektronik 533-mm torpedoes DM2A4 / SeaHake mod 4 and American anti-ship missiles Boeing UGM-84 Harpoon Block II.

      Why does he need 2 Mistral? Why does he need FREM ?? Why does he need two Govinda? Why does he need the Ambassadors of MK3? And on top is Rafali, MiG, Mirage and F-16?

        But there is no need. Before you go abroad (for which the army was created), you need to clean up the inside. In the sense, the standard of living, technological development, civil rights and freedoms of the population.

      Well, this is an obsolete boat, according to a project from 80's, which was digitized and applied new technologies to where it could be applied.

      Now new from the same manufacturer 212-218.

    Yes-ah-ah ... Trading in submarines is more profitable than driving oil and gas through pipes ... Yes, and there are fewer different intermediaries. And the Egyptians are well done. There is access to the sea - there must be a submarine ...
    Here, some sons of David do not like it ... laughing But you never know what we do not like. Do not like it - do not eat ...

      They ordered 4 boats, if that. This is the first.

      The sons of David have the best boat for a generation, from the same manufacturer.

      The type 209 mod, despite the digitization and new technologies in low noise, is still a boat from 80's.

        Etc. 209 is a normal workhorse that has given a branch to modernizations. Well, not across the Atlantic to go to autonomous regions, but near its shore. Etc. 212 performance is better. But it turned out to be difficult to operate. Therefore, the demand for 209 does not fall. And he is better than the French and Spanish offer
