Egypt Receives Second Of Four Type 209 Submarines From TKMS

Egypt has received a new Type 209 submarine S41 from German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems at the Ras al-Tin base Wednesday.

This is the second of four scheduled deliveries. The submarine can sail for 11,000 miles with a speed reaching 21 knots. Its length is 60-73 meters. Missiles and torpedoes can be launched through the submarine, which has been provided with modern navigation and telecommunication techniques to protect regional waters as well as national security, Andaolu Agency reported.

In December last year, Egypt received the first 209/1400 Submarine at the German city of Kiel. This comes as part a deal made between the two nations for four submarines to help protect Egypt's national security through supporting the Navy’s technical and combat capabilities.

Egypt placed an order for two submarines in 2011, and added an additional two in 2014. Egyptian technical teams travelled to Germany last year for training on operating these new submarines.
