According to French La Tribune newspaper, Egypt is negotiating with Germany for obtaining 2 MEKO A200 corvette as an alternative to the additional Naval Group Gowind corvettes for 1 billion Euros.
The sale of two Meko A200 remains surprising for many observers. First, the price of German corvettes is much more expensive than its rivals, including the Gowind. Then, the Egyptians would have asked that she be armed with the MBDA Aster 30. However, the French authorities have always linked the sale of this missile to the sale of a platform or French or Italian.
