Egypt has received two new frigates and a submarine as it celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its Navy. The Egyptian Ministry of Defence announced on 18 October that the first Gowind-class corvette El Fateh (971) and second Type 209/1400 submarine S42 (864) had arrived at the naval base in Alexandria.

The arrival of the El Fateh and S42 followed their joint delivery and exercise at sea with the French Navy. S42 is the second of four Type 209 submarines ordered from ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) in 2011 and 2014. It was handed over on 8 August in Kiel, Germany after S41 was handed over in December 2016 and delivered this April.

Zitat:Egyptian Navy to buy two Italian European Multi-Purpose Frigates

French newspaper La Tribune reported that Egypt is on the verge to sign a deal with Fincantieri to purchase a pair of European Multi-Purpose Frigate (FREMM) warships from the Italian shipbuilder. [...] According to the report, these frigates may be drawn from the Italian Navy’s procurement program – the vessels Spartaco Schergat and Emilio Bianchi, launched in January 2019 and January 2020, respectively – enabling Fincantieri to sell the vessels for an estimated cost of €1.2 billion.

Of the two frigates in question, the Emilio Bianchi was launched in January and was due for delivery to the Italian navy in 2021, while the Spartaco Schergat is due for delivery in a few months. [...] Spartaco Schergat is a general purpose-configured variant with a full-load displacement of 6,900 tons and 144 meters in length. It carries an OTO Melara gun, a 16-cell vertical launch system launching Aster 15 and Aster 30 missiles, an MU90 lightweight torpedo launching system (Torpedo Launching System) and the Teseo MK2/A anti-ship system, based on the Teseo missile. The ship also has a flight deck for embarking two helicopters.
