CNG - orders new Navy Corvettes from France

Postby Paphitis » Wed May 22, 2013 7:15 pm

Just thought this deserves a thread of its own!

Also, there are reports that Cyprus has ordered 2 L'Adroit Corvettes from France and has already made a 120 Million Euro down payment! :D



Armament: 16 Mica RF air to air missiles or 16 Aster 15 SAMs
8 Exocet anti-ship missiles or 8 RGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missiles or 8 RBS-15 Mk.3, 4 Hull mounted ASW torpedoes, CIWS 20, 30, 35mm, 4-8 12.7mm HMG, decoys

Plus UAV/UAS and a 10 tonne Helicopter! :D

Things looking up for the CNG! :D

This is obviously related to the gas reserves.

Turks gonna have a hissy fit?
US gonna put pressure on little CY?
Deal falls through.

Whatever happened to the self propelled Chinese artillery the CNN was set to buy a few years ago?

But it'd be awesome to patrol our EEZ with some decent equipment. :D

Why would the US put pressure on CY if the boats are intended to secure the gas reserves which the US will extract? Unless the US intends to offer CY security over its gas reserves! The US Navy 6th fleet is nearby. :roll:

I think this idea was Israel's anyway! So if it is Israel's idea, surely Cyprus will have America's blessings! :D

You're right.
Bit of a catch-22.

Not like the s300...
let's see what happens. :wink:

Guys guys guys!

I think you are all confusing this with another one of Greece's betrayals of Cyprus!

The S-300 SAM debacle which Greece managed to convince us to hand over, because they are spineless poofs, in exchange for inferior equipment in order to appease the enemy (Turkey).

That is what Greece does you know! Cowards! :roll:

We would be damn stupid to trust Greece again because it is still collaborating with the occupying enemy!

Yep, they are the Corvettes in question!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gowind-class_corvette

Still have not found a reliable source about the purchase, but damn I hope it is true! It is exactly what the CNG needs! :D

There was a Sigma article published about the purchase though!

Well as long as they end up in CY and not in flipping, bleeding Crete.

Any other source for this news...???
