Great news chaps! :D

Along with the 2 state of the art French Corvettes, Cyprus has ordered another 2 ships (unknown type) from the Israelis worth 100 million Euros.

I wonder what they could be? :?

It could be these beauties...

Excellent news that even in these difficult times CY can look to its allies in France and Israel for assistance,

In the years ahead, when the sea to the south is filled with dozens of rigs, CY will also need a small fleet of aux ships for search and rescue, fire-fighting, evacuations and pollution control.

Cyprus will have a lot of assistance with the SAR capability. The Petroleum companies would be all over the pollution thingy as well. They generally spare no expense. I reckon the gas may even save Cyprus from the evil clutches of Tourism and over development which I think is worse! :?

The French Corvettes are ideal, and don't forget the 4 AW139 Choppers purchased recently!

Manufactured in Israel?

Confirmed, Israeli.
The helicopters are Italian.
The Corvettes are French

maybe if the Greeks actually produced anything we could buy from them? :?

The Greeks are not allowed to produce anything.

Be grateful Greece's special relationships with both Israel and France and joint-maneuver deals have gotten us this much!

Then Cap is just prejudiced.

But for now, Greece has to concentrate on tourism and agriculture; the directive I believe applies to Cyprus too.

No Cap is absolutely correct.

Greece with a population of 11 million produces nearly next to nothing of any note. Just all talk and absolutely nothing to show which is why most young Greeks can't wait to leave.

Don't get me wrong, because I believe it is an incredible shame that the Greek People have been let down so much, and there are no jobs and no future for the the average graduate in Greece. There are 50,000 applications to migrate to Australia alone. Who knows how many applications were made to US, UK, and Canada.

That is what is eating Greece at the end of the day. The sooner they realize that they were never as good as their over inflated egos said they were, the better off they are going to be. They got to pretty much start over from scratch so that Greeks in 20 years time can turn to Greece and have options other than Tourism and Agriculture.

Agriculture and Tourism are for the third world. It is not something a developed economy will rely on.

There are NO directive either way that Greece and Cyprus must concentrate on Tourism and Agriculture. They choose to do so because at the moment there is little alternative. Both better find alternatives very quickly otherwise both will lose the younger vibrant generations. Cyprus at least has a jail "get out of jail free card" in the form the recent resource finds.

But, these will run out one day, so it is important that the money generated be invested back into light industries and manufacturing, banking and finance, education and science and technology so that we have something to show for it afterwards.
