16
On Thursday, the German Kile shipyard at Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW) hosted the launching ceremony of the first 209 / 1400MED submarines of the Egyptian Navy, the blog said bmpd with reference to english.ahram.org.eg. The ceremony was attended by the commander of the Egyptian Navy Osama Munir.




The boat, which received the Egyptian designation S 41, must be transferred to the customer in 2016.

The contract for the construction of 2's diesel-electric submarines was signed by the parties in 2011.

According to the resource, “the construction is carried out on account of loan guarantees issued by the German government in the amount of 700 million euros”. The implementation of the agreement was somewhat delayed due to the political events in Egypt in recent years.

“The submarines of the 209 / 1400Mod project being built for Egypt are equipped with a traditional diesel-electric power plant. The leading Egyptian S 41 has become the 64 submarine of the 209 project family built in the world since 1970 of the year, ”the newspaper notes.

      Given the fact that Egypt again began to look in the direction of Russia, let them build it.

          the torpedoes are round, but the fact that you can see it from the front is the shields of the torpedo tubes.

    To protect the “Merlins”, which the paddlers did not give to Russia, they are suitable for trips to the “friendly” countries. Here, of course, a dozen helicopters will be bought and take a big walk.

    All right, submarines, but 2 Mistrals and 50 Ka-52s are too much. hi
