France Says Egypt to Buy Mistral Warships


Recommended Posts

I am kind of shocked to see how many new toys the Egyptian Armed Forces are buying nowadays...


Rafales, FREMM-frigate and now the Mistral warships.

I also think they are getting some new subs.


Add to that a couple hundred of F16s already in service.


Who are these guys arming themselves against?

Libya is pretty much out of the picture and you don't need all that stuff to combat IS.

Or perhaps there is serious money (bribes) involved here?


One possible explanation for the navy expansion may also be the increased interest of Med countries in securing oil fields in the Med. Cyprus has just sold its fields, Greece is planning to do so with Turkey complaining about both. Who knows?
