The Egyptian frigate Alexandria carried out a fleeting naval training with the Greek Elli-class frigate HS Kanaris, within the range of the Northern Fleet in the Mediterranean Sea.

While the Egyptian Southern Fleet carried out transit naval training with the US Navy in the Red Sea, with the participation of the Egyptian frigate Taba and the American ship USS Okane.

The Egyptian forces have also executed a transit naval training with the Spanish Navy with the participation of the Egyptian frigate Al-Zafer with the Spanish frigate ESPS Victoria.

The Elli-class frigates are a series of frigates operated by the Hellenic Navy. The ships are of Dutch origin and are also known as Kortenaer-class or Standard-class or S-class frigates. The first two ships (Elli and Limnos), which have lengthened hangars and different armaments were built specifically for the Hellenic Navy.

The remaining ships are ex-Royal Netherlands Navy S-frigates of the Kortenaer class transferred to the Hellenic Navy in the 1990s and early 2000s. These robust and reliable ships constitute the backbone of the Greek Navy. Elli, for which the class is named, is itself named after two famous Greek cruisers, one of which was sunk during World War II.
