The joint exercise Bridge of Friendship 2020 between the Russian Navy and the Naval Forces (Navy) of the Arab Republic of Egypt has ended at the Black Sea Fleet.

The purpose of the exercise is to strengthen and develop military cooperation between the Egyptian Navy and the Russian Navy in the interests of security and stability at sea, as well as to exchange experience between personnel in repelling various threats in areas of heavy navigation.

During the exercise, the main activities were carried out at sea in the maritime phase. Russian and Egyptian sailors practiced a set of joint exercises, including search and rescue of a drowning man, escorting behind trawls, repelling an attack by small-sized means of a mock enemy, organizing resupply at sea by a traverse method, as well as inspection operations against suspicious vessels.

As part of the exercise for the comprehensive protection and defence of ships, joint artillery firing were successfully carried out at the surface and air targets, as well as at floating mines of a mock enemy.

The detachment of ships of the Egyptian Navy includes the frigate Alexandria, the corvette al-Fateh and the missile boat M. Fahmi.

From the Russian side, the Black Sea Fleet forces took part in the maneuvers, including the frigate Admiral Makarov, the small missile ship Orekhovo-Zuevo, the patrol ship Dmitry Rogachev and the rescue tugboat Professor Nikolai Muru.

At the final summarizing conference, representatives of the joint leadership of the exercise from both sides recognized Friendship Bridge exercise as valid and successful, despite difficult hydrometeological conditions.

Interesting how Egypt gets away with playing both sides (Russia and the west). @ANGMAR do you think that Egypt will have to choose one side in the next decade?

I personally think Egypt could probably continue working with and buying arms from both sides as long as the Suez Canal remains open... But if things start heating up between Russia-China-USA then my bet is that one side will attempt to immediately convince Egypt to close the canal to enemy vessels. The strategic importance of the Suez canal reminds me of Turkey's situation, where you must be friendly with both sides to an extent.

Honestly both Turkey and Egypt are in interesting geopolitical situations due to their strategically important maritime chokepoints.
