In Egypt, construction began on the first serial corvette Gowind 2500

27
On Saturday, the first cutting of steel for the corvette of the French project Gowind 2500 took place at the Egyptian shipyard Alexandria Shipyard, the blog reports bmpd. The ship will be built with the participation of the union DCNS.




The contract with DCNS for the construction of 4's corvettes for the Egyptian Navy was concluded in 2014. Its cost (without rocket weapons) was € 1 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, the lead ship was laid and will be fully built at the DCNS shipyard in France, the other three - in Egypt.

The deadline for the head corvette is 2017 g, the rest are from 2018 to 2019.

According to the blogger, "these corvettes will become the largest warships ever built in Egypt."

“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 knots, and the cruising range is up to 3700 miles on 15 knots, ”the article says.

The crew of the ship - 65 people. On board, space is also provided for 15 passengers, for example, paratroopers who, when performing a task, will be able to use two quick-release 6,5-meter semi-rigid motorboats.

According to the report, “the armament of the Egyptian corvettes will consist of two four-container launchers of the anti-ship bracers; presumably 40-mm Nexter Narhwal), 3-mm torpedo tubes for MU16 torpedoes. The hangar can house a helicopter up to the 76-tonne class of a permanent base (probably the Egyptian Navy will use the Kaman SH-20G Super Seasprite) ”.

      When Yemen completely tears up the ass, it will be necessary to pull it off somewhere. So they care about the future.

        A Saudi family of several thousand princes is unlikely to be welcomed in Egypt. There are enough of their loafers.

      They will earn themselves: "There is also a place for 15 passengers on board, for example, paratroopers" - airborne assault - these are places for tourists.

        In Egypt, after their revolutions, a reduction in the influx of tourist money, only spend money on it. But seriously, the military finally took power in Egypt.

    Thank God, in Egypt, thanks to the military (they were not allowed to destroy the state), the people are coming to their senses after the "Arab spring".

      And where does the people?
      The people just chose the Muslim brothers ...
      Thirsty for the people of Sharia ...

      And if Mursi hadn’t gone too far right now, we would now have another Islamic Sharia country.

    Egypt is seriously building muscles. Against whom will he use them?

      Why against someone? I would live in that gadyushnik called BV, everyone is friends against everyone, and the Arab spring shook the brain pretty well for the Egyptians.

      They still have FREMM. The Saudis are building a fleet of the Arab coalition, Egypt is entering there at the moment, it’s on a bucks hook. If the help ceases, they will quickly get there, because the budget without sponsorship cannot be made up for salaries and food. And tourism somehow does not return. Plus the war in the Sinai. Plus, the war is bogging down on the western border, since the Caliphate in Dern is only growing and Haftar cannot stop him yet.

    As I understand it, these are not ships for naval battles, but for special operations with the landing of special forces on the enemy’s coast.
    It is interesting, on whose shores are the Egyptian commandos about to land? Could it be to the sons of Israel?

      No, these are quite successful ships of the near zone, but with respect to Egypt it is from Aden to Algeria.

      There is a MIKA air defense system - based on VV V MIKA missiles, 11 km of ceiling, 20 km of range.
      The newest Exocet, perhaps the best Western RCC at the moment.
      The Super Rapid is the most used and most successful naval gun in the world, now in the Stealth body kit.
      Standard MU-90 - package type.
      And a heavy turntable with a hangar.

      Not overtaxed, a perfectly balanced corvette. At the same time, they pushed SMART-S there, one of the best radars from Thales in this size. Unlike 20380, which through Furke can hardly use an air defense system, and the new tower on the Barriers is only on corvettes under construction (and even not all of them).

        It is clear that in which case this boat may snap. I was a little embarrassed by 15 passenger seats. Just for not big special forces.

          So, it is on any modern ship. On the same 22160. Many still have multifunctional blocks for humanitarian operations (keeping pirates / trapped refugees, opening a hospital, and transporting essential goods).

      Based on what? Based on the availability of the ability to have two inflatable boats on board? :)
      15 marines in a special operation against Israel? How do you assess this situation yourself?
      I rate her as suicidal ...


      The Egyptians are doing their best to ensure the safety of their Suez Canal.
      In 7 years - he will bring in 35 million 610 thousand dollars daily !!!
      For such money, the Egyptians will instruct their ships throughout the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Mediterranean.
      Pirates will crush with terrible force.

      Think against Israel? Then they will rake in full, this time there is no USSR to cover. But the Egyptians are not warriors in comparison with the Israelis. So, most likely, they simply master the money of CA.

        It can not be in any other way. Half of the Jews are "our" people))). And ours whom you want to do.

    It is not so much interesting that the Saudis do not spare money from the deficit budget for the armament of Egypt, but why do they do it. Really going to visit a professor? Although most likely to his neighbors.

    Nobody will look askance at Israel right now. It's not about the number of tanks / planes, not even the training of pilots / tankers. Israel has a very motivated army. And this is a very important factor. And the plus is the mobilization reserve, with good combat training and no less motivated.
    Who is from the promised land, tell me, is it true that girls during fixed-term service do nothing, even a criminal record for a minute of weakness?
    And the corvettes are good, only the price tag of 250 million euros without weapons is something expensive. And this, a crew of 65 people, were not mistaken?

      Imagine that the girls there are 35% of all paramilitary structures.
      At the age of 18 years.
      Unmarried and childless.
      And you want them to have "nizz"? :)))
      Yes 35% of the army will go crazy after a certain period ... :)))
      Especially zealous religious (on which one might think that they "hold on") are not taken into the army ...

      Let's start with the fact that most of the girls in the army either go home every day, or once every two weeks for the weekend. Like the guys.

    It is strange that no one mentioned how the French had discredited themselves with the Mistrals and now no one would buy anything from them for unreliable partners.

      Well, the Govindas walked in a mega-contract with the Rafals, Mistral and FREMM.

      Apart from the Russians, no one considers the French to be discredited.
      For all over the world there has been and is going on such an upsurge of anti-Russian sentiments that there even action went in support of the sanctions.
      Spanish, Irish, German children in 12-15 years consider Putin the worst dictator and fascist worse than Hitler.
      And we, the inhabitants of the country, intimidated and duped by propaganda.

    I went to look for kosher relatives in my home (there’s little chance: that Vyatich’s maternal, Kazakh Tatars’s paternal status are unlikely to be found) I want to join the Israeli army laughing

    As I understand it, these are not ships for naval battles, but for special operations with the landing of special forces on the enemy’s coast.
    Considering the weapons - Exocet missiles - just right for battle. Good anti-ship missiles, in my opinion, are better than the American Harpoon. Of course, not "Granite" or "Onyx", but enough to confront the closest neighbors.
