Bahrain eyes Egypt-built Gowind Corvettes
Egypt could manufacture two Gowind-class corvettes on behalf of Bahrain, one of its close allies in the Gulf.
The Kingdom of Bahrain is interested in acquiring two warships of the Gowind type (Naval Group), which would be manufactured in Egypt by state-owned Alexandria Shipyard.
The Gowind-class corvettes are multi-mission platforms designed to carry out various operations including surface and sub-surface warfare, surveillance, protection and escort missions. Besides, the vessels can be deployed to conduct maritime policing missions against trafficking and piracy.
