Last Updated: 1/1/2022 | © www.WDMMW.org


Modernized with the help of the Soviet Union in the 1960s, the Egyptian Navy now steers more towards the Western approach to naval warfare. In its current incarnation, the service is charged with protection of its long-running coastlines in the Mediterranian Sea and Red Sea and represents the largest such force in Africa and the Middle East. Operating a pair of French Mistral-class helicopter carriers/amphibious lanfding ships also makes it the only African/Middle East power to have aircraft carriers in the force. However, a bulk of the surface fleet is dedicated to the OPV force followed by mine warfare / counter-warfare. Beyond this is a healthy stock of frigates, amphibious assault, and corvette warships to bolster fighting strength. The submarine force accounts for 7.5% of all strength. The overall fighting force is considered of average balance - the Fleet Core making up the largest component of the branch. The WDMMW TvR rating places the service just under the Indian Navy (which operates more total frontline vessels) and ahead of the French Navy (which operates fewer frontline units).


The following represents an overview of the modern naval fighting capabilities of the Egyptian Navy (2022). The service currently counts 107 total units in its active naval inventory. This total includes frontline commissioned vessels but excludes smaller patrol vessels, auxiliary / survey ships, replenishment, and historical ceremonial types. The WDMMW review takes into account specific categories of warships covering attack, defense, and general support designs. Inventory numbers and related unit types are provided as-is and derived from publically-available information / sources. "On Order" totals found at the bottom of this article are related to any future hulls currently under procurement/construction though said hulls may not be delivered for service in the current year for various reasons.

Age plays a vital role in the life of any warship as hulls and various onboard technologies are pushed to the limit, ultimately exposed to the corrosive and generally unforgiving effects of life at sea. Such degradation often leads to modernizations, refits, or outright retirement. Our color gauge attempts to showcase a vessel's current state within the fleet, helping to detail those outgoing vessels against those at the midway point of their service or those just having been commissioned.
