Well, they're both built by Yonca-Onuk JV which is a Turkish co. that builds under joint venture and custom contracts. I remember first seeing these years ago in the EN during Mubarak's days and the relationship was fine at the time they were acquired. A custom batch was built for the Turkish Coast Guard while another, smaller one was built for the Egyptian navy fast attack and coastal patrol.There is only one flag on the boat and that is the Egyptian one.. so it is not even a JV.. these are made in Egypt..either the license was bought or they just look similar..
The great takeaway for me from this year's EDEX (and only being the 2nd ever) was the practicality of 99% of the items on display. They were all truly battlefield ready and usable as well as needed items and nothing out of the reach of most militaries, with the exception of some of the big tickets like Rafales & larger ships etc. But a lot of terrific armored vehicles, UAVs/UCAVs, automated firing equipment, modern interior vehicle systems and of course, radars up the wazoo. This was really a very enjoyable display of a lot of practical military equipment. It was also interesting reading some of the critiques out there such as one source that was not happy about the fact that they claimed Egypt hardly has an indigenous military program, yet they put this very successful 3-day display on showcasing A LOT of indigenous stuff while they're country, a military powerhouse doesn't do such a thing and why not? It was interesting to read that crap lol.We didnt see the new Egyptian 3D radar this exhibition unfortunately but they did unveil 2 ground radars, an IFF radar, and an updated version of the ESR-32B.
Hope they develop further in this field.
