DCNS began building the Gowind Corvette for the Egyptian Navy


The contract for the construction of 4's corvettes was concluded in July 2014, its cost is about € 1 billion, excluding purchases of missile weapons. Under the terms of the contract, the lead ship will be built in France (delivery is scheduled for the summer of 2017 d), and 3 others will be built in Egypt with the participation of DCNS specialists.

“The Gowind 2500 Corvettes for Egypt will be large enough for their class ships with a full displacement of 2600 t, having a length of 102 m and a width of 16 m. They will have a diesel-electric power plant with a total power of 10 MW with two diesel engines and two electric motors. The full speed will be 25 nodes, and the cruising range is up to 3700 miles on 15 nodes, ”writes the resource.

The crew strength is 65 people, there is the possibility of taking on 15 people (for example, paratroopers) who can use two semi-rigid speedboats.

According to the blog, the "armed Egyptian corvettes will make two chetyrehkonteynernye launchers for anti-ship missile systems MBDA Exocet MM40 Block 3, 16 vertical launchers of anti-aircraft missile systems MBDA VL MICA, 76-mm universal artillery installation Oto Melara Super Rapid, two remote-controlled small-caliber artillery systems (allegedly 20-mm Nexter Narhwal), 324-mm torpedo tubes for MU90 torpedoes. ” The hangar provides space for a helicopter to the 10-ton class.

“The electronic armament of the Egyptian corvettes will comprise the SETIS ASMU (similar to the FREMM type frigates), the integrated mast with the Thales SMART-S three-coordinate radar under the fairing, the Thales Vigile 200 EW complex and the Lacroix Sylena firing jam complex. Anti-submarine capabilities will be provided by the Underkil GAS Kingklip and the towed GAS Thales CAPTAS 2, ”the blogger cites data from a French resource.

      Mistral is impossible, you are the same strategic weapon. If the French deliver two Mistrals to Russia, NATO will hopelessly lag behind Russia in military power soldier because of this, they don’t deliver ships to us ...

      But the French have experience not to give the ordered ships, and this may not give the Egyptians. It would be better if the Egyptians signed a contract with Russia, then they could not have worried, and so they would bounce - they would give, they would not give. recourse

            The CSTO is a collective security treaty, not a military-political bloc. And it was created in order to make it clear to the NATO countries that they would not meddle with pretzels and cookies and would not suit the Maidans. In which case, Russia can cover them. For example, Lukashenko recently asked fighters to perform the air defense function, we threw several Su-27s into Baranavichy, if I am not mistaken.
            The Eurasian Union is built on equality, and not on hegemony, Britain, Germany and France as in the European Union.

              I meant that in the place of the Egyptians you can’t trust anyone, neither France nor Russia by 100%. We thwarted the supply of C300 to Iran, and did not deliver them to Syria. So, we sometimes hand over customers of our products. And here Egypt can begin to fight in Yemen, which will cause the wrath of Iran, and then in order to please Iran, we can lodge Egyptians. You can only trust yourself, that’s the truth and not always ....

                Well, yes, yes, agrees Medvedev at one time broke firewood. Troops entered South Ossetia when Georgia already bombed Tskhinvali with hail, Libya was surrendered in the Security Council (they did not veto it), and S-300 was not delivered to Iran. For some reason, it seems to me that if Putin were the president, everything would be different. And it’s good that Medvedev did not go for a second term, otherwise he probably would not have accepted Crimea as part of Russia.

                  Such decisions are not taken alone. And I would not blame Medvedev, blocking the rest of his team. And speaking about our topic, it’s not a year to build a ship, but we have the presidential election through 3 of the year. So everything can change

    Oh, how many questions ...
    - why do they need Egypt? Whom he wants to counteract. And how Israel reacted to this deal.
    - if the Egyptian leadership continues its policy of rapprochement with Russia, will they see these boats in their fleet.

    The contract for the construction of 4 corvettes was signed in July 2014, its cost is about € 1 billion, excluding the purchase of missile weapons.
    Whose weapon will it be? This question has already been resolved?

    Hmm. RVV SD MICA as a SAM - quite solid. In our country, when on the basis of R-77 the missile launcher began to fool, it grew as pregnant as a nail, but all the same, the radius of action is unsatisfactory. And at MICA, the engine's energy is closer to the P-73.
    Exoset, of course, in itself is quiet horror. Although the clones of Israel, Iran and China are riveting it, the solid-propellant anti-ship missiles are completely out of date.
    There are no normal artillery memories. No air-to-surface missiles. The watchman is big and expensive - chasing smugglers.
    Ours, ordering Mi, were forced to deliver our entire weapons complex, leaving nothing of their own. But with "Caliber" and "Broadsword" the trough looks like nothing. But corvettes are imposed on the Egyptians as a gratuitous loan. Although with "Yakhonts", "Caliber", a palm tree and a polyment, even this galosh would look good.

        Air-to-surface is my fault - thanks! hi
        And with 76mm AU - here you are inattentive. I wrote the memory. If "nishmagla" for political reasons is ZRAK from "Palma" to "Broadsword", then hooch "Goalkeeper" or, at worst, "Falanx".
        And why would a corvette thief EM URO - Duc for small countries just, or should all AUG do? "Caliber" and "Onyx" will cover the Mediterranean puddle. I'm not talking about the Red Sea.
        20380, by the way, on the displacement is not very different.
        And here is a patrol boat with an empty hull. Will it not be useful in the economy of PLO at 76 km, air defense at 150, anti-ship missiles at 300 and a security zone around the ship from a massive launch of "harpoons" or Israeli Gavrikov?

    It seems to me that according to the good old French tradition, referring to the instability of the situation in the Middle East, the ships may "plot"! feel The mere feeling that the French shipbuilders, imposingly pacing along the Mistrals, laugh at the "gullible and shy" Russians, drives me into a rage! am Can drive to the Crimea, correct nerves ?!

      Compete with a freebie is a little difficult.
      Although Comrade. Sisi can do as with the Rafals - "give - take" - of course, but for business - the Su-35.
      The analogy with the Mistral is incorrect - the Franks will chase after the Egyptians, for the Saudi money.
      And we have a lot of questions in Egypt. Wh is the clearer pro-Syrian position and relations of Egypt with Saudi Arabia. In order to get 20380, one must become, if not a vassal of the Russian Federation, then at least a political client.
      But, on the other hand, these corvettes will be radically cured of constipation by both Israel and the Saudis and the USA, which Sisi cannot but understand.

      Interestingly, Egypt buys at full price, but for example Israel, having also bought corvettes in Germany, "asked for" a discount:
      Germany has made Israel a discount of 300 million euros from the upcoming contract for the supply of three missile boats
      Germany agreed to make a discount of 300 million euros (about 382 million dollars) from the cost of the planned contract for the supply of three missile boats.
      Israel requested a 30 percent reduction in contract value, as was the case with previous German submarine deals. Germany had a discount of hundreds of millions of euros and was part of the policy of Chancellor Angela Merkel to maintain Israeli security.

    Well, in the company of floating ebipetkogo scrap, donated by the United States, the Soviet Union, in the period of Soviet-ebipetnoy friendship, supplied by the United Kingdom, Spain, China, the next addition.
    Egyptian Navy:
    - 4 Chinese submarines of the 033 project, clones of Soviet 633 pr. Of the end of 50's. Probably not on the go.

    In 2011, 2 submarines of the 209 project, armed with Boeing UGM-84 Harpoon Block II anti-ship missiles, with delivery up to 2016, were ordered in Germany.
    - 4 of the American frigate Oliver Hazard Perry — the most combat-ready ships of the Egyptian Navy — transferred to 1996-1998.
    - 2 American frigate type Knox, transferred to the 1994 year, with extremely weak anti-aircraft armament: 20-mm 6-barrel ZAK Vulcan Phalanx
    - 2 frigate Jianghu Chinese built, without air defense missile system, anti-ship anti-ship missiles clone of the outdated Soviet P-15M.
    Negotiations are underway with Egypt on the acquisition of the frigate D 651 Normandie, built for the French Navy (2 is serial for the Navy of this country. It is also planned to order another frigate of the type FREMM.
    - 2 Spanish Corvette Descubierta, built in 1984 year.

    Rocket Boats-28
    - 4 American Ambassadors MK III, built using "Stealth" technology from 2011 to 2014 .. They are the most modern ships of the Egyptian Navy.

    - 4 types of October - Egyptian clone of our RCA pr. 183, rearmed with Italian anti-ship missiles "Otomat"
    - 9 project 205: 4-supplied from the USSR in 70-x, still 5 former Yugoslav, bought in Montenegro in 2007,
    - 5 former German Type 148
    - 6 type Ramadan English built.
    - 8 MPK "Hainan" - Chinese construction

    - 10 patrol boats (6 Soviet pr.206, 4 Chinese "Shanghai-2")

    Mine-sweeping forces-16:
    - 2 American minesweeper mine hunter Osprey
    - 6 sea minesweeper pr.254 of Soviet construction,
    - 4 marine minesweeper pr. 266 of Soviet construction
    - 4 former Finnish RCA Tuima (a copy of Soviet pr 205) converted into minesweepers
    Amphibious forces:
    - 3 SDK Ave 770
    - 8 MDK Ave. 106K
    - landing craft type LCA
    Thus, the Egyptian Navy, despite the fact that they are the strongest among the fleets of Arab states, is completely inferior in its strike capabilities to the Israeli Navy.

      In principle, it was specifically designed as an inexpensive overgrowth corvette for export to countries that do not have a large military budget. Egypt, after all the coups, is just one of those. Malaysia and Uruguay also chose him.
