According to La Tribune, the four corvettes weigh 2,400 tonnes and are equipped with surface-to-air VL Mica and sea-sea Exocet missiles.

La Tribune also added that the Egyptian Air Forces purchased nine transport aircraft from Airbus Group.
Oh by the way an important ally
This is NOT what they're talking about..............
Egypt might own the ships but it is Saudi money that pays for it as the Saudis are propping up Egypt’s economy.
Angylne is a French name
We gave them how much money....and over the years how much??
Maybe we can give the Egyptians some food stamps.
