In Cairo, signed a contract for the supply of "Mistral"

Last Saturday, an agreement was signed in Cairo for Egypt to purchase two Mistral helicopter carriers, originally built by the French company DCNS for Russia, reports bmpd blog with reference to the publication of Le Point.




The contract parameters are not officially disclosed, it is only known that both ships will be transferred to the Egyptian side in March 2016. Crew training (400 people) will take the 4 month.

According to the publication, "the actual value of the contract amounts to 950 million euros, and it is mainly funded by Saudi Arabia."

“Delivery to Russia of two helicopter carriers built under the 2011 contract of the year became impossible after the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions by the European Union in August 2014. The contract for the supply of these ships, defended at the shipyard builder STX France in Saint-Nazaire, was officially terminated by the Russian and French parties 5 August 2015, and already 23 August 2015, an agreement was reached to acquire both UDC Egypt, ”reminds the publication.

      and we need it, especially for money ???
      Our fleet has other tasks.
      On this loot is better than small boats with "calibers" across the oceans to stumble!

        In order to arrange such ships across the ocean - we need support bases, but we have catastrophically few of them.

          It’s necessary that they fly for 5000, then the bases are not needed. Fill more in Petya and similar ships, here are the bases.

      Do not sell. There are many obligations.
      The main thing is now ours to sell devices to this trough (helicopters, equipment), because the Russified highways are imprisoned for our tasks and, accordingly, our weapons.

        Well, this is so, only the specific Syria and the BDK of the 4 fleets are working to the limit, making 2 flights per month each. And the reserve for building up the group is no longer there, the rest is either in repair or in the database in its fleet.

        You can’t use civilian contractors - because, under the law of the sea, when passing through other people's waters (Turkey), they are legally stopped and inspected. Turkey imposed sanctions against Assad and Syria, on this basis, the cargo will either be arrested and returned after a long trial, or the ship with the cargo will be deployed towards the point of departure. Although there Peter, Kuzya and Moscow will prank in the straits - these are international laws that Russia has also signed.

          Good idea. But you can consider introducing into the Navy a pair of dry cargo vessels or container ships in the auxiliary fleet. Raise the Andreev flag, guis and let them try to inspect. soldier

          Contractors are not allowed, but renting with transfer to the Navy is possible, of course, you will have to tinker with pieces of paper, but here, as they say, the one who wants is looking for opportunities and who does not want it - excuses :)

          Not everything is so sad ... Here, for example, what the Alexander Tkachenko steam ferry company SMT Crimea does after the tourist season in Crimea is closed:

          Pomnitsa, when this photo appeared, everyone wondered - why Syria "Urals", PAZ and tanks ... smile

          But a ro-ro vessel as part of the Navy under the flag of the auxiliary fleet would be more reliable, yes. Moreover, for him, and without the Syrian express, enough work.

      In Mira signed a contract for the supply of "Mistral"
      Where is it? Have they signed an agreement in Iran?
      According to the publication, "the actual value of the contract amounts to 950 million euros, and it is mainly funded by Saudi Arabia."
      Who will give the Saudis money, is it possible that Amers are so rich that they would make such purchases through intermediaries?

      Obviously, the Mistals did not last long. At one time in the war with Israel, how many Egyptians of Soviet technology prosrali. And basically it was not combat losses, but everything was stupidly abandoned.

      Who will drown? Hussites from the Metis / Competition? Or Caliphate from Cornet? Or maybe Dawn of Libya with recoilless / MiG-25 cast iron? These are all likely opponents and areas of application of ships.

      So they got a whole FREMM in the escort + Rafali + they bought Govindas to the Mistrals (which cost more than the Mistrals).

      There is peace and harmony with Israel, until cooperation in the Sinai and the active development of the Israel-Egypt military-technical cooperation.

      Since the 2013 of the year, the Nevskoye Design Bureau has been easily encroaching on naval projects with advance projects. Generally 7-8 years from the beginning of financing to the lead ship and try to accommodate the price in 500 million dollars per ship - this is the application of the Nevsky Design Bureau.

        Yeah ... and this is the second approach to the projectile. Previously, the Nevsky Design Bureau tried to offer its alternative to the Mistrals ordered at that time, but domestic shipyards said that no places - all suitable slipways are busy, there is nowhere to lay the ship. And looking at "Grena" - they can be understood. smile

    But it’s interesting, do they also have captains on such ships or will they also be trained in 4 months?
    I looked at their composition and found nothing more than 5000 tons. But 5 thousand tons and 20 thousand tons, even in management, are significantly different.

    What the Saudis say to Egypt, he will do with these ships. Maybe it will be like a ship providing pin-dos and their sixes. And what about I. Gren? When the contract with the Mistrals was just negotiated, it was already under construction, Mistral had long been ready, even oversold, and I.Gren what?

      By the day of the Navy 2016 - a real entry into the fleet.

      Prikaznoy under the tree - otherwise without prizes everyone will be sad to celebrate the new year. The first exit to the ZHI is December (formally, to close the task on the 1 exit and surrender - but the fleet will accept it by the spring of 2016 - everyone is happy, everyone with bonuses wink ).

      "Today, an order has been signed to begin mooring trials, which we plan to complete at the end of November and proceed to factory sea trials. By the end of the year, the ship will be handed over to the Navy"- said Mikhailov.

        Thank you for the info. As everything is familiar. In 2002, they built the pumping station for SurgutNeftegaz. They handed over before the New Year. Early. Working prize, the administration of the PREMIA. And really, they brought to mind only by September next year.

    Observe the fate of the Mistrals! With all the negativity to the crap, they didn’t have the likeness of Gorbachev and EBN, ours would be launched into scrap metal cutting. One is insulting how much resources were invested in the defense industry, funds torn off from the people, and then they were cutting up for scrap or simply withdrawing loot abroad.

    Since these ships are suitable for sailing in cold waters, is that the Egyptians afraid that the Nile will freeze?
    I don’t understand why they are to them. If the Saudis paid for them, then it’s clear: they don’t look in the teeth for a gift horse.

    The Black Sea Fleet is becoming a full-fledged fleet (the Caspian flotilla is its integral part), the arrival of new boats (the “black hole”) will make it even stronger, so the Yankees in the Black Sea simply will not increase their numbers, do not consider them idiots, they know perfectly well that the Crimean coastal complexes if necessary, they will clog the Bosphorus, the Dardanelles, and the Aegean Sea too. They will not risk breaking the convention on the Black Sea straits. Therefore, I think that they will go along the path that Russia has gone, will begin to strengthen the coastal component in Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria and possibly on the “independent” one. Hence the conclusion: - in the Black Sea, a trough of the Mistral type is not necessary for Russia, we will be using the BDK smaller and with brighter characteristics of the warship ourselves, experience has already appeared. Egypt, although not a vowel, but almost now an ally and helicopters can only buy in Russia (do the same repairs), so that we did not lose anything (even hope I found new technologies!)
