Talks are still ongoing between Egypt and Naval Group regarding the procurement of the Scorpene 2000-class submarine along with a transfer of technology (TOT) agreement.
The Commander of the Egyptian Navy Lieutenant General Ashraf Ibrahim Atwa Megahed met with high-level French Navy officers to discuss the deal.
Will a deal be reached anytime soon?
What about a TOT agreement?
What about a follow-on order for the German Type 209 submarines?
Are there Egyptian preferences between the Scorpene and Type 209 submarines?
Tactical Report has prepared a 381-word report to answer these questions and more.
