The Egyptian Navy has recently marked a significant milestone in its naval arsenal with the launch of the ENS Al-Jabbar, the fourth MEKO A-200 EN frigate, at the Alexandria Shipyard.

This development comes as the culmination of a monumental project undertaken by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems under a lucrative $2.7-billion contract with the Egyptian government.
