ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) announced on 10 December that the first of four Type 209/1400 submarines it is building for Egypt at its Kiel yard has been launched and named S 41.


This is the first time the German company has acknowledged the Egyptian Type 209 submarine contract, the existence of which was confirmed by Rear Admiral Osama Ahmed el-Gundi, the chief of the Egyptian navy staff, in August 2012.

The press release provided no additional details about the submarines or their delivery dates.
