    Algeria, the main thing is that the Germans do not confuse the weapon systems on these ships as their own.

        Ships would also be bought from us, just the same modern frigates 22350, we cannot complete for ourselves, and even with engines problems. The same thing with UDC (ordered from Italians) - we Grena have been building everything for the 11th year. And so, they have 2 Varshavyanka in our ranks, another 2 contracts have been signed, construction will begin this year

    The implementation of the contract is carried out in conditions of significant secrecy
    And who is it from and why are we so secretive? A "surprise" for someone?

    Nice frigate!
    Algerian frigates of the MEKO A200 AN project will be very powerful armed ships carrying 16 anti-ship missile systems (according to various sources, Saab RBS 15 Mk III or MBDA Exocet MM40 Block 3), South African Denel Umkhonto anti-aircraft missile system (32 vertical launchers), the new 127 mm / 64 Oto Melara LW artillery mount, two anti-aircraft artillery systems (apparently the 35 mm Rheinmetall Millennium) and 324 mm torpedo tubes with MU90 torpedoes. Two Super Lynx Mk 300 helicopters can be permanently based on each ship, which will be armed with MU90 torpedoes and Denel Mokopa air-to-surface missiles.

    In 2012, they signed a contract, and in 2015, running. It remains to envy!

      We can add that the ship’s hull structure provides excellent stability (including the use of weapons) of this light frigate, low visibility in the electromagnetic range and extremely low thermal signature due to the features of the propulsion system (engine mounts and exhaust lower or at the waterline level) allowing cruising 18 nodal travel on just one engine and low-noise anti-submarine on a water-jet propulsion ...

      The air defense is not very good, there will be no Exosets for sure, only the Swedish "sausages" RBS-15. Not the best option, it would be better if they took the French Havinda 2500, with a smaller displacement the filling is somewhat better.

      MEKO 200 was a pretty hot commodity at one time, since the eighties they’re doing it, so the timing is

    Yeah, the timing of building and receiving the ship in the fleet is really impressive ...
    This is who we should take an example from our "managers from USC" - not to shove budget loot into the pockets and offshore, but to actually build ships!

        First, learn to write normally! This forum is on "thieves' raspberries" to "use a hair dryer".
        And even if there was an "ohulliard", he would never sacrifice and for anything - they will still be robbed ...

      German company TKMs:
      - roots go back to the Hovalsverke company, founded in 1838
      - has several slipways in Hamburg, Kiel and other smaller cities in northern Germany
      - By 1945, 80% of buildings and 60% of the company's equipment were destroyed
      - Today the company employs approximately 6600 people, mainly in Gemania but also at the company's shipyards in Sweden and Greece
      - builds and built civilian ships - superyachts, Oktopus for example:

        Both Algerian ships were built not by TKMS, but by the German Naval Yards shipyard (but roots in TKMS ...) part of the Privinvest holding with Arab capital. (Renamed GNY (with "Abu Dhabi Mar") was last year at the "request" of Israel , after the start of construction of SAAR-6 corvettes on it) TKMS in Kiel builds only submarines (including the sixth "Dakar" for Israel) and according to rumors from Australia, it is she, and not the Japanese, who will receive a contract for 12 U- 216Aus. worth 20 (!) Billion dollars (35 Australian ...)

          Yes you are right. GNY is the former part of TKMS that ThyssenKrupp sold to Investor. It has nothing in common with Israel's "demand" to rename it, you went over it wink

          But last year, TKMS received some kind of super-duper order from Singapore for two new Typ 218СГ, which will be even bigger and cooler than Dolphin - as they say.

            No, no, this is an absolutely known fact, not related to the sale and has been repeatedly mentioned (in the German press, there are mountains of irony on this topic) When TKMS turned to its former shipyard, and now Abu Dhabi Mar, to be a subcontractor of CAAP-6 platforms, Israel strongly asked to change the name. (Arabs supported ...) B Kieler Nachrichten (the most informed journalist of Frank Behling) it appeared initially, and more than once, and then wherever it was not mentioned. Tip 218Sg is 214 under the customer's specifications and does not meet the Israeli requirements. About 2 Israeli firms except Germans took part in the design of Dolphin-30 ... Good week to you.

    Even Algeria has frigates superior to many of our TFRs in terms of performance characteristics, and even the Grigorovich with the company. Construction time - 3 years !!! And we have? Now (the female dog) when will you learn to work. Saw the unfortunate "Gorshkov" for 10 years. Already there is not enough evil and decent expressions ... (well, you get the idea)!

    The frigates of this project are well balanced and, unlike the same Zwolvt, do not raise questions. Judging by the number of orders, the ship is very popular in the arms market.
