    Interesting gifts (what holiday?). And the name "Youth of Egypt" is not entirely appropriate, "Grandpa" is more suitable.

      The South Korean Defense Ministry has officially announced the free transfer of the Egyptian Navy of its Pohang-type corvette Jinju.
      This "FREE" does not happen in market relations!
      Most likely, it is precisely behind the back of South Korea that the United States and its Pentagon are standing, rearming and mobilizing the South Korean armed forces. The excess Pentagon ships in South Korea will simply be redistributed to their other countries.

        P-32 also presented.
        On 4 on August 2016, at the Egyptian naval base of Ras et Tin in Alexandria, a ceremony was held to transfer to the Egyptian Navy a large missile boat P-32 of the 12421 project from the Russian Navy. As part of the Egyptian fleet, the boat was named Ahmed Fadel (tail number "801").

    in principle, for the border guards, two guns will be fine, a good move of 32 knots, of course, maybe a little smaller old man all the same, but for catching violators it’s quite
