France will sell Gowind 2500 type corvettes to the United Arab Emirates. According to the portal navyrecognition.com, the company Naval Group, formerly known as DCNS, has signed a contract with the UAE Ministry of Defense.


The deal was announced by French President Emmanuel Macron during his visit to Dubai. The details of the contract were not disclosed, but it is known that the ships will be delivered in the UAE in a unique modification - instead of the standard combat information and control system SETIS, the Tacticos system will be used.

      They are at the 3-4 place in sales of weapons.
      These corvettes are Egypt's starting customer. The lead "El Fateh" is already in Egypt. Three more ships are being built for Egypt.

        From the point of view of French politicians, democracy in the UAE is flourishing, so the political risks that the French government will block the deal are very minimal.

          She wouldn’t have to “blossom” with such a lot of money, and most importantly - Emirate-style democracy subsidizes expensive purchases in the form of American weapons, Russian missile defense systems and French corvettes, for which you only have to shake 11 princes and one and a half hundred officials (part-time relatives) .

              Well, they won’t become starving, they’ll leave them golden tremors and a couple of limousines, and they’ll take a few heads off, the rest will be “modest” - after all, relatives don’t take off their hide (the clan of the king has one and a half thousand relatives, so it's not great decrease). bully
