Helicopter carriers of the Mistral type (Sevastopol and Vladivostok) received the names of Egyptian presidents and will be delivered to Egypt by the end of September

37
On April 17-19, France’s President Francois Hollande is scheduled to visit Egypt. Against the background of the upcoming visit, the public’s interest is aroused by the fate of the Mistral-type helicopter carriers, which France once built as part of a contract for the Russian Navy. The French ambassador to Egypt (Andre Paran) told reporters that the helicopter carriers will be transferred to Egypt before the beginning of this fall. According to Paran, "between June and September."


Meanwhile, it is reported that helicopters of French construction, which were previously called "Vladivostok" and "Sevastopol" received new names. They were named in honor of the Egyptian presidents: "Gamal Abdel Nasser" and "Anwar Saddat." This information appeared in Twitter microblog users with a nickname Sa'kawhich publishes news about the Egyptian armed forces. It is noteworthy that Gamal Abdel Nasser - the Egyptian president, who at one time was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. And Anwar Saddat is the Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

In the same microblog reports that the helicopter "Gamal Abdel Nasser" will go into service with the Egyptian Navy in June, and the "Anwar Saddat" - in September.

Recall that after France’s refusal to deliver these Mistrals to Russia (Hollande referred to sanctions), Paris paid Russia the required funds for contracts for disrupting one of the parties (in this case France). After that, Russian radioelectronic equipment was dismantled from the sides of the "Vladivostok" and "Sevastopol" and taken out to Russia.

One of the pictures shows amphibious boats, which were built in Saint-Nazaire for helicopter carriers, ready to go to Egypt.


All these boats - four. All of them, like the helicopter carriers themselves, were acquired by the Egyptian side.

      Something tells me that the Egyptians will quickly ruin them. They get better with hotels and camels.

      It is unlikely that the contract most likely does not provide for this, the French are cunning. Though... winked

          Not only cunning, but also vile ... They had little tricks with the Mistrals, now they have seized $ 1 billion (700000 and 400000) in accounts receivable to Roscosmos ... Motivating - the Yukos affair ...

          Interesting dances ... The French owe Roscosmos for space communications services and the use of Soyuz-type missiles, but they will not pay this money, motivating that Russia owes 50 million to Yukos ...

          What is it and how to understand it ???

            Probably because you have to litigate competently. It is only now that the lawyers have prepared documents for the court that all these companies, investors in Yukos, are "leftist" companies. Now we will expect a new court decision. And I will not be surprised that the Rothschilds are involved up to their ears.

        Ka-52s are the most suitable helicopters for these ships, yet ships under them were built. in addition, helicopters are good and relatively inexpensive

    We definitely do not need them.
    During construction, technologies were mastered. As far as I remember, 2 technologies are in the interests of MO and 1 for USC.
    Of greater interest is the opportunity to saturate them with our technology))).
    This is still to earn))).

        This is the first.
        Further, the mastered technologies, this does not mean that everyone immediately rushed to build helicopter carriers.
        Thirdly, where do you order the hulls of ships laid according to old technologies (this is the issue of technology for USC).
        Fourth, how do technologies for the Ministry of Defense overlap with the need to build helicopter carriers?
        And finally, you can fantasize violently, describing things in which you need to use the technology. Naturally, you need to know what kind of technology this is)))
        Plus for the question
        if mastered. why so far no ships of this class have been laid down?

        I would definitely not put it))).

    Egypt will buy helicopters from us. So alligators will be produced in the required quantities, and they will appear in our fleet. And such ships must be built by ourselves. For your climate and for your military doctrine.

    "Helicopter carriers of the Mistral type (Sevastopol and Vladivostok) received the names of Egyptian presidents and will be delivered to Egypt by the end of September"

    I do not presume to judge the combat and seaworthiness of these ships, but at least one of them was of excellent quality. These are their names! So you will probably have to build good ships with these names yourself. Well, so as not to disappear ...

      And it is desirable that these were aircraft-carrying cruisers.

    And to me, as a Russian, I’m very sorry for the power!
    Let's leave politics alone and look at all this purely business-to-business, and only business.
    For its "hard-earned" money Russia financed the economy of the NATO-France state, filling their production capacities, giving jobs to thousands of French.
    The money was returned to us, there is no dispute, but it was not we who received the profit-profit, but the "paddling pools" and apparently double!
    In certain circles this is called "use a sucker in the dark"! After all, our government did not receive "percent of the lost profit" from France, they returned us purely our costs!
    Here, on the forum, they write that we didn’t need these UDK at all ... did it?
    Wouldn't they be useful in the "Syrian Express"? Maybe then it was not necessary to buy "rusty rubbish" from the Turks and drive large landing ships and military transports of the "Yauza" type from all fleets? Anyway, one Mistral will replace 2-3 large landing ships in terms of carrying capacity, not counting the upper deck. And for the Pacific Fleet and the Kuril Islands, they are vital!
    Of course, "every cloud has a silver lining" -the lesson learned we hope for a century-the military fleet must be built in our shipyards and with our own hands!

    I have a question about their use of the Egyptian Navy. Why did we need these ships, we felt on the example of the Syrian operation, and the Egyptians what will they do? Mobile hotels? A sort of Fragment of Egyptian flavor at distances of 6000-10000 nautical miles.

      The marine component of the army of the Arab coalition it will be. The Saudis bought the same.

      Plus, in Egypt, Libya is drawn, they are already bombing Derna, for example. If Haftar is crushed in the east, then the Baboons will climb into Egypt, through a deserted, completely unclosed border.

    And what a normal Russian is not offended. Everyone is offended. But I'm sorry that at one time they recklessly rushed to "make friends" with the West, I will not discuss the causes and consequences, for a long time, and many themselves know, although the late Primakov, the land rest in peace to him, whom Putin always considered his teacher, was categorically against such a reckless "friendship" and was a supporter of closer cooperation with the East. And if, for example, they ordered something similar to the "mistrals" in China, then there would be much more use and sense. "I think so!" As the incomparable Frunzik Mkrtchan would say.

    There was no need to betray the allies in 1967 and get out of the confrontation with Israel to please the United States, expelling our military experts - there would be no need to "sink" their ships now only on video.
