A surprise of a heavy caliber: Egypt is negotiating for 4 Fremm Bergamini frigates with the Italian side

In a heavy surprise, the Egyptian Army is negotiating with the Italian side to acquire 4 advanced FRAME Bergamini frigates to take out 4 Knox and Berry frigates from service.

Major General Mohamed Zaki, Egyptian Minister of Defense and Deputy Major General Ahmed Khaled Hassan Saeed Ahmed, Commander of the Navy, visited the manufacturer of the frigate Fincantieri at the IDEX 2021 exhibition that took place in Abu Dhabi, UAE, a few days ago.

It is noteworthy that Egypt had signed the contract of the two multirole heavy frigates Bergamini with Italy in August 2020, and the value of the contract amounted to 1.2 billion euros. Egypt requested adjustments amounting to 140 million euros to be borne by the Italian side, and Leonardo will implement a number of them valued at 55 million euros. NATO equipment has been removed and Egypt has chosen its alternatives.

The first frigate has been delivered and preparations are underway for the second delivery in the coming days.

The frigate will come with the latest missile and gun systems, which is a dream for all competing navies in the region and is not occupied by anyone but Italy today and the USA in the near future

Almost Christmas in July! lol It's getting pretty obvious that the EN is really liking what it has been seeing in the Italian FREMMs much more than others.....once you see them requesting additional, large numbers like that, it's pretty clear what is going on. They're loving what they're seeing and how could they not? Look at that ship it's insane, from bow to stern and everything in between and not only that, they don't leave it unfinished like others did and replace the NATO equipment with what appears to be better stuff!! Need to read a bit more about that!

This is what we need to find out more about. Which gun and missile system are we talking about? My quick guess for the VLS might be the MICA NG as reported earlier which seems to be a crazy new missile with that preferred loitering capability and at the same time, seems to be better than the latest Sea Sparrow VLS system that the UAE was asking for on its FREMM. But I bet the missiles are the new MBDA MICA NG but what is this new gun system?

I thought Bergamini was Italian? But why france is tagged with Bergamini
Because the ship is essentially a FREMM, codeveloped by France and Italy which then both took their hulls and designed their own masts, control rooms and radar/coms to their own specs. But both are basically FREMM ships.
