I have red some reports talking about those OPVs capabilities..... does they include Surface-surface Missiles....?!

Welcome to Egypt...
It's the same motto across every single type of equipments... It's not just fighter jets... From Land to Air via Navy...
It is mostly related to the integrated systems to be compatible with each other .... not related to the origin of the Equipment.

I don't think so.. because of the numbers..(20 to be manufactured in Egypt)
I believe they are going to be the Diciotti-class offshore patrol vessel with 390 tons displacement..armed with
1 × Otobreda KBA 25/80 mm and 2 x 12.7mm MGs

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diciotti-class_offshore_patrol_vessel




All the other Italian OPVs are corvette and frigate sizes.. so we can eliminate them..Even Italy doesn't have 20 of each..

*The Egyptian OPVs will likely be more modern with better systems and armaments.. and a displacement of less than 500 tons




The design for P61 (Saettia MK3) provides a clear rear half to the ship, providing sufficient space with reinforcement to land a helicopter, up to the size of an AW139. P61 has the capability of carrying out patrols up to Sea State 5, and withstand sea conditions up to Sea State 7. It can launch a rib patrol boat via a rear launch ramp up to Sea State 4.
This combination of modifications increases vessel weight to 450-tonnes, and reduces standard crew capacity to 25. Maximum unrefueled patrol length at 20 knots (37 km/h) is 3,000 nautical miles (5,600 km).

They cost around $20 million each.. but since they will be made in Egyptian shipyards.. they will likely cost less than that..

**Now we can understand why the Egyptian Navy was interested in about 20 Leonardo AW149 helicopters (plus another 10 as option)

Yes, if EGY only went for Western/European ones... but They are also integrating Russians and Chinese syst in the mix... that can't be integrated with Western ones, therefore making them "isolated".
EGY newly position in the region, pushes her to "grow" and that at any cost, even if it means no proper "logical thinking".
Where "political" driven decisions is what is shaping the army procurement...

Yes of course..but these are just OPVs
Old FAC will also be replaced eventually..

Falaj 2-Class stealth patrol vessels..classified as stealth inshore patrol vessels (IPVs) 550 tons.. are a good possibility too..


Capable of providing high standards of accommodation and safety in both domestic and international waters, the Falaj 2 incorporates a turret of either 57mm or 76mm, two small cannons, teleoperated anti-ship missiles and a surface-to-air, short-range (six-cell vertical launch) missile system and decoy launchers.

*The UAE has 4 of them as well as their TOT
*UAE’s Falaj 2 Class is designed based on the Italian Coast Guard Diciotti-Class offshore patrol

So did this means it's likely Egypt will pursue it? Egyptian people told me it's unlikely for years to acquire another platform.
