DCNS has delivered the second Mistral-class helicopter carrier LHD Anwar El Sadat to the Egyptian Navy Friday.

On 10 October 2015, DCNS signed a contract with the Ministry of Defence of the Arab Republic of Egypt for the supply of two Mistral-class Landing Helicopter Dock vessels (LHDs).

The delivery of the first of these two helicopter carriers, the LHD Gamal Abdel Nasser took place on 2 June 2016.

By 2020, DCNS will have supplied seven combat vessels to Egypt, thus contributing to the modernisation of the Arab Republic of Egypt's defence system, the company announced Friday.

The LHD Anwar El Sadat will leave Saint-Nazaire a commune in the Loire-Atlantique department in western France. The carrier, in next few days, will be set to sail for port of Alexandria. On this occasion, the Egyptian and French navies will participate in a joint exercise.
