Egypt is due to receive its first Type-209/1400 submarine from Germany at a ceremony in the German city of Kiel on Monday.

The Egyptian navy is set to receive several Type-209 submarines from Germany according to an agreed timeline, said an Egyptian military spokesman.

Egypt signed a deal with Berlin to buy two German-made Type-209 submarines in 2011, ordering two more in 2014.

The new submarine, manufactured by the German company ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, is a technological addition to Egypt's navy and will further its capability to bolster Egyptian national security, said the spokesman.
