The GEV-2 "Meseh," or crocodile, is Egypt's primary marine asset. As in, for the Navy as its lightest and most used combat vessel, and the Royal Egyptian Marines as a landing vessel and river combat vessel, for which it is most famous.


In its role as an ocean-going naval vessel, it is a light combat vessel capable of attacking much larger enemy vessels in squadrons, using its recoilless missile cannon and torpedoes. They are also excellent for eliminating patrol boats and causing devastation in harbors.

In the river combat vessel role, it serves with the Royal Egyptian Marines' River Corps, occupying (yes, they OCCUPY rivers) and patroling enemy rivers and lakes to secure them for transports, as well as providing fire support from the river with long range missiles.

As a transport, it serves as the Grand Egyptian Navy's primary asset for transporting squadrons of War Chariots, platoons of infantry, and assorted special supplies and vehicles. Ekranoplans are capable of landing directly on the beach and offloading vehicles, supplies, or men very quickly. Thus, this is one of the GEV-2s specialties.

With the River Corps, the GEV-2 performs a similar role. It transports platoons of marines or river marine commandos along rivers to attack inland targets in special operations. It also carries supplies, men, and vehicles across rivers where bridges have not yet been built. This is a role that has been performed by Egyptian Marines and their vessels since 2,000 B.C.E.

The Ekranoplan, an innovation in engineering, now being used wide-scale for the first time. Even before their inventors the Russians have!

Awesome! I love russian amphibious aircraft too! My favourite is the Beriev Albatross.

Nice concept, but isn't this just the commercial airliner set with backwards wings and frontal engines?

I have a hard time seeing this go mach five, or even float, but I like the oddly angled wings.

I don't get how this thing goes Mach 4 with those turrets/ un-aerodynamic weapons systems on the top.

Quoting Brendan Dore I don't get how this thing goes Mach 4 with those turrets/ un-aerodynamic weapons systems on the top.
When it comes to the recoilless launcher, it's like a hollow tube. The air just goes right through it. The ocean-going transport versions typically don't have any armament at all.
