On the way to the Mediterranean: UAE orders Falaj 3 missile ships


The United Arab Emirates has signed a nearly $ 2017 billion contract with local Abu Dhabi Ship Building to build a series of warships. ADSB previously built Baynunah-class corvettes for the UAE Navy, the last of which was transferred in XNUMX.

The UAE will pay $ 952,7 million for four missile-armed Falaj 3-class patrol ships. Their construction will take place at the shipyard in Mussafa, the area of ​​which is more than 300 thousand square meters. m. Integration and installation of all equipment will also be carried out here. Work is expected to begin at the end of the third quarter of 2021. The contract is planned to be implemented within five years.

The Singapore company ST Engineering took part in the design of the project. It is expected that each ship will have a fire control system, detection equipment and electronic warfare, armament will be represented by main and auxiliary caliber artillery, surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missile systems, and decoys. Specific details on the stuffing of the ships were not disclosed, however, it is indicated that all equipment meets the requirements of modern naval warfare.

UAE builds up combat power fleet in conditions of acute confrontation with Turkey on the borders remote from the country. Abu Dhabi is providing serious material and technical assistance to the Khalifa Haftar regime in Libya, which is waging an armed struggle with the Ankara-friendly government in Tripoli. It is quite possible that the expansion of the strike capabilities of the UAE fleet is designed to ensure the presence of the country's navy in the eastern Mediterranean, covering the routes of communication with the allied regime.

      They will not take it away. UAE from Yemen dumped a year ago. And now it is only feeding the southern committees, which are suddenly fighting against the Hadi government and not fighting the Houthis (although they are far from friendship).

    In my opinion, the Emirates and Oman are the most adequate of the Arab monarchies.

      Don't be fooled. These are people with an alien mentality, you think in neighboring comments people just smile like that. hi

        Alien to whom? And how does alienation contradict adequacy?

          Alien to us, Great Russians.
          For example, the mentality of the Meskhetian Turks, the population of the regions where they were given land after the "acquaintance" with the whole world tried to drive them out or destroy them (nice people laughing ). How did the war in the Caucasus end? The people who renounced peace and good neighborliness even abandoned their lands and got out of the territory of our empire. Adequacy is an abstract concept.

            I don't see any logic. Are you planning to move to the Emirates or Oman? Or should all Arabs from these countries be resettled in the Moscow region? How does the difference in mentality prevent you from living or trading or something else?

            There is no need to compare the Caucasian war or someone else and force the mentality of the muhajirs on everyone else. You are very primitive and oversimplifying the situation.

              You are in trouble with logic. The mentality of the Arabs from the Emirates is the same as that of the Arabs who entered Europe, just some have bad money and live at home, while others are seizing new lands. Their life values ​​are the same and do not coincide with the values ​​of the countries where they climb. Look at the news sometimes, for example, in France, quarters were formed where the gendarmerie did not enter, by the way in Uzbekistan a similar picture took place and the final was bloody.
              Before reasoning, collect information and then build logical constructions hi
              PS: the events taking place in European countries where the Arabs are "settling in" also apply to Russia.

                I'm fine with my logic. As well as knowledge of the issue. You just have no idea that not all Arabs are the same and not all Arab states are the same. They don't go to France or anywhere else either from Oman or from the Emirates. They are fed well there too (c)
