The training programme includes theoretical modules, on-land training with platforms and simulators, and on-board training at the quayside and at sea.

The FREMM was transferred to the Egyptian Navy on 23 June, and DCNS and partners will accompany the crew for 15 months to help operate the ship. The company will also provide support services and through life support in Egypt for five years.

The FREMM Tahya Misr frigate is fitted with the DCNS SETIS combat system to counter air, surface, land-based and submarine threats. It has Aster and Exocet MM 40 missiles, a Herakles multifunction radar and MU 90 torpedoes.
