Egyptian Navy received the third diesel submarine project 209 / 1400Mod

The Egyptian Navy has armed with a third diesel-electric submarine of project 209 / 1400Mod, built at the German shipyard Kieler Werft TKMS in German Kiel. The ceremony was held on April 9th ​​without ceremonies due to the coronavirus.


An intergovernmental agreement with Germany on the construction of two submarines of project 209 / 1400Mod for Egypt in the amount of EUR 920 million was signed in 2011. The Egyptian lead boat S41 was launched on December 10, 2015, transferred to Egypt in December 2016 and arrived in Alexandria on April 19, 2017. The second S42 boat was launched in Kiel on December 5, 2016. The Egyptian Navy received it on August 8, 2017, the boat arrived in Egypt on October 18, 2017.

In 2015, a second agreement was signed for two more submarines of this type (the third and fourth). S43 was launched in Kiel on May 3, 2019 and is now handed over to the Egyptian side. The last submarine is under construction, its transfer to Egypt is scheduled for 2021.

TTX: Submarine length - 62 m, width - 6,2 m, displacement - approx. 1400/1600 tons, underwater speed - 21,5 knots. in the surface - 11 knots, cruising range - 11 thousand miles, crew - 30 people.

In service: anti-ship missiles UGM-84 "Harpoon" and torpedoes DM2A4 (eight 533-mm torpedo tubes).

It is assumed that submarines will provide security and border protection in the Mediterranean and Red Sea, as well as the Suez Canal.

    That Egypt does not like our 636?
    No worse than German and much cheaper.

            I wouldn’t be so blunt about Japan.
            Bo, as far as I know, their Armed forces are called "self-defense forces."
            Another question is that Comrade Hitler also wove something about compliance with conventions. And the thing ended with what ?!
            My grandfather had to explain in Berlin how Comrade Hitler was really wrong.

              you never know how they call themselves. The Japanese always pretended to be "fools." The Japanese traditionally do not stick out success, trying to pretend to be such harmless simpletons.
              Moreover, Japan is one of the most faithful allies and partners of the United States (which the States themselves take seriously).

              As for the doctrine, even if it is defensive, this fact does not at all mean a renunciation of offensive weapons. Defense - it must be active, otherwise it is doomed to failure

        So these bastards (Japanese) did finish the lithium-ion battery.
        just now they took the first boat to the fleet -
        On March 5, 2020, in Kobe, Japan, at the Kobe Shipyard & Machinery Works of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Corporation, a solemn ceremony took place to commission the Japanese Navy's self-defense forces of the non-nuclear submarine SS 511 Oryu built there (the 11th in a series of Soryu type), which became the world's first combat diesel-electric submarine equipped with lithium-ion batteries

        You may not be aware, but the MPA was eliminated in 2011. All T-22M3 naval aviation are either transferred to Long-Range Aviation or “disposed of." In the Far East, there are currently no aviation regiments armed with Tu-22M3.

      This is Mubarak's contract. Which was guided by the western equipment in purchases. This is the first.
      Second, the German side has allocated 700 million euros of bank guarantees for this contract.
      The third in 2011 Admiralteika was loaded with the implementation of the Vietnamese and the first Russian contracts for 12 boats in total.

      Well, and then, whoever already took the slippers, he walks in them wink . Therefore, they are already sitting on German boats, finishing off this contract. There is also a tasty contract for the implementation of the Navy base for these boats. The largest in the region is the covered part of 500x300 meters. Well, the full stuffing of the base itself - simulators, maintenance, etc.

      Doccor 18, patriotism is a good thing, but without knowledge, naked patriotism is useless. Varshavyanka and modern German submarines are not comparable, if only because the Germans have the technology of an air-independent power plant, and Russia does not have such technology. Therefore, 4 countries bought Varshavyanka, and German submarines - dozens of countries. Learn materiel and do not make yourself a laughing stock.

        What are you talking about? About project 209? Which scattered dozens around the world since the 80s, about the project 212? About project 214?
        For your information, only the last two have VNEU, and the first is nothing except our smaller size and ammunition from our 636 pl.

        The last customer for submarines of this type was Egypt, which ordered two boats of the 209/1400 mod type in 2011, and in 2014 ordered two more. The 61st submarine of the project - S42 - was handed over to the Egyptian fleet in August 2017. GEM: 4 diesel generators consisting of: 4 MTU12V 396 SB83 diesel engines with a capacity of 4 x 1250 liters. with. (6100 l. From.) And 4 generators 4 x 900 kW, a rowing electric motor 4000 l. with.

    By the way, it’s interesting to learn about the activities (successful, it’s not for your grandmother) of the Egyptian submarine fleet.
    What are the achievements, what are the plans for the transition to the nuclear submarines for example.

            VNEU unfortunately, not worked out to this day. As I know. Therefore, I put on the submarine.
            Being in the submarine, you hardly want to experiment.
            I have been inside a Diesel boat and not only her.
            The crew is unlikely to want to do experiments.

          The submarines have one big drawback - they are much more noisy. Nuclear submarines are good in the ocean to launch strategic nuclear missiles. And in the Mediterranean, they will be easily discovered and destroyed.

      Our experts went ... trained crews ...
      The conclusion was disappointing.
      I never heard anything about the successes of Egyptian submariners.
      Attempts to ask similar questions to those who were in the subject ran into a joke (heard twice, but in the same place):
      "So that the boats would not sink, they welded them to the piers."

              almost 500 million euros per square meter of parameters is cool, especially for Egypt.

                636,6 Varshavyanka for the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation costs about 450 million euros, it is out of date twenty years ago. And pr. 209/212 is the best-selling in the world, probably buyers are fools. Based on that project, South Korean submarines and Jewish Dolphins were built. They don’t keep stupid people there. In Turkey, DEPL of the same project.

                  Project 212A is a fairly modern project, but 209 is still not high-tech. The fact that the best-selling one is yes, but it is also far from the first freshness.
