Alexandria shipyard has huge potential for building larger ships, and building independent ships(never truly independent unless Egypt can build missiles and sensors) but designing them without another naval group partnership. This shipyard has capacity to even build light aircraft carriers so possibilities are endless.





It seems Egypt has been building up its amphibious assault capabilities for whatever reason so this is an extension off that.

Egypt formally inagurated a strategically signifacnt new base complex on 15 January in an event attended by high-ranking dignitaries from allied Arab States. Berenice (Barnis) Military Base is located on the Red Sea coast approximately 90 km north of the Halayib Triangle, an Egyptian-controlled area disputed by Sudan. The Egyptian Ministry of Defence said the base has been built to secure Egypt's southern coasts, economic interests in the Red Sea, and international maritime traffic moving through to and from the Suez Canal. The base complex is supported by local infrastructure developments that include a 50-bed hospital, a desalination plant with a 34,000 m 3 per day capacity, and 40 km of roads that link the various bases.
