It is the Meko-A300 class frigate..

According to the information and infographics provided by the firm, MEKO A-300 class frigates will be strongly equipped and fully functional assets capable of fighting in three operating environments: the air, the surface, and the subsurface.

Survivability (resistance to adversary operations), detection reduction by all available technical observation systems (stealth technology), lethality (ability to hit specific targets), and adaptability to diverse missions were presented as the four key strengths of the MEKO A-300.

It is bigger and more powerful than the MEKO-A200 :

The MEKO-A300 is a powerful frigate sporting 68 surface-to-air missiles, 42 point-defence missiles and 16 anti-ship missiles...

To improve firefighting and NBC protection, the ship is divided into two primary zones (front and aft islands, a feature already adopted in the F125 class frigate of the German Navy). Furthermore, the ship’s weaponry and sensors are split into two islands in order to keep the ship fighting while also coping with fire or damage.

The frigate’s missile, gun, and torpedo weapons are specifically zoned. Aside from the ECD antenna system, the sensors were further divided by placing two navigation radars on the front mast and one on the back mast, for example. The Combat Information Center (CIC) has also been doubled. The primary CIC is usually found in the forward section, while a backup (smaller) CIC has been located near the stern (behind the task deck under the hangar).

The ship will be constructed with stealth technologies to lower radar cross-section and thermal signature in comparison to similarly-sized frigates.

The MEKO A-300 frigates will be armed with two VLS systems, according to the infographics: a Mk 41 VLS 4×8 cells in the forward section loaded with SHORAD/MRAD/LRAD/TBMD missiles, and a 36-cell VLS between masts launching MRAD. The ships would be armed with 2 RAM launchers (carrying 21 missiles each) for close-in missile defence. The new frigates appear to be outfitted with a multi-layered air defence system that includes a range of SAMs. As a result, the MEKO A-300 frigate can engage sixteen air targets simultaneously with at least two missiles.

Four quad launchers will be mounted between two masts and will be used to launch anti-ship or land-attack missiles against surface and land targets. Two triple 324 mm torpedo launchers will be deployed on the starboard and port sides to engage subsurface targets.


MEKO-A300


The main gun will be a 127/64 mm Vulcano. Along with the RAM point defence missile system (PDMS), the ships will receive two High Energy Laser (HEL) systems (front and rear), which will most likely be used to counter low-slow flyers like drones. The ships will be armed with two 35/40 mm cannons and two 12.7 mm remote weapon systems.

According to what the Chinese newspaper China Times announced, the CH-5 UAV is working for the Egyptian Air Force, without mentioning the number.

See the source image


The UAV CH-5 can carry 16 anti-armor missiles distributed on 6 suspension points under the wings.

The UAV features a payload of 1 ton of ammunition and missiles, which enables it to carry 24 anti-tank missiles for armored vehicles, personnel and trenches.

It can stay in the air for 40 hours, extending to a maximum of 60 hours, and its range, depending on the payload, ranges from 6,500 km to 10,000 km, while its maximum height is 9 km above sea level.

US approves sale of 12 C-130J-30 Super Hercules to Egypt for $2.2 billion

See the source image


The C-130J-30 is a stretch version of the C-130J, a proven, highly reliable and affordable airlifter. The C-130J-30 adds 15 feet to the fuselage, increasing usable space (two more pallets of equipment) in the cargo compartment.

The US State Department has also approved a potential foreign military sale of three SPS-48 ground-based surveillance radar systems to Egypt for $355 million..

A real believable compensation would have been the upgrade of the Egyptian F-16 to the V version or at least a good part of the fleet..

A transport plane deal can not replace a very potent fighter.. it is just not logical.. and mostly that this C-130J-30 Super Hercules is most likely financed from The US military aid package..

Meaning for free..HaHa!..
