    Does anyone have more pictures of this BAE Caiman version with what looks like an IED jammer?

    Correct, just one more thing, the REVA Mk.III 4x4 in the picture actually belongs to Yemen goverment. Photo was taken prior to Houthi takeover of Sanaa in 2014. I also want to add that REVA Mk.V seems to be much less common compared to Mk.III in RDF. Some photos of Egyptian REVAs from my...

    Thank you for your kind words! They didn't, if they did, we would have seen at least a few during 2011 and some years later. Despite Egypt being quite secretive with some of its systems, you cannot hide 425 tanks. There was also a really good article on them, I'll link it later if I manage to...

    Yes, both pics I shared were T-55s, addition of M68 105mm gun (US license modified copy of famous British L7) makes them T-55E MkII Ramses, E means Egyptian and Mk.II is the only version of Egyptian T-55 that features M68 105mm gun, unlike the earlier examples that still retain the old 100mm gun...

    It is T-62E Model 1960, it has 115mm gun with bore evacuator closer to middle of the barrel rather than end of the barrel like on T-55 with it's 100mm gun. It's E as "Egyptian" model because it has smoke launchers, numerous boxes and some other changes. Anyway, this picture is from Luxor, but...

    Here's the rest I have, sorry for spamming, guys. If you have more pictures, specially of vehicles from this period, I would be very grateful. Also a lot of the photos have terrible quality, unfortunately I cannot do anything about it. ZSU-23-4 Shilka SA-3 HAWK M109 SM-4-1 130mm M-46...

    I'm mainly interested in vehicles, so I most of the times only download those. Anyway, here is my collection. I have a lot of photos from Arab spring, but I won't post these, they are available at Milinme blog. Early 2000-2012: (4K51 Rubezh) ATS-59G Sakr-36 MLRS BMP-1 (super low quality)...

    This is actually a very good idea! Egyptian workshops already have some experience with modifying T-55 tanks (as demonstrated by T-55 ammunition carriers shown here). There were some more modifications too, on both platforms. Egypt's BMP fleet is shrinking and too old, there is of course...

    Regarding the T-62s with Swingfires, only a few were modified (my guess is around 10), some also had smoke launchers instead of Swingfire ATGMs. They weren't used for a long time, or at least appart from this parade and two exercises from 80s I haven't seen them. Maybe it didn't work that well...

    It is Egyptian T-62. It has BMP-3 fire control system and thermal sleeve on it's 115mm gun. I think this is RO-115 Mk.I, but I also believe this vehicle was never adopted in service, as I haven't seen more pictures of it in service. So it probably only served as testbed/prototype before T-62E...

    It's YPR-765/AIFV, very common IFV in Egyptian army. They were purchased in late 90s from Netherlands (YPR-765) and Belgium (AIFV).

    Yeah, they had one of the best AT weapons back then, RPG-29… and then IEDs, Konkurs etc. Ukrainians also use RPGs a lot, I’m kinda surprised how Stugna-P performs, even against tanks with ERA.

    I don't think you can compare these 2 scenarios as Abrams performed fairly well against AT weapons, in fact very well. Few were completly destroyed, some were damaged but their performance was actually good. T-tanks in Ukraine on the other hand, not so much... a lot of them are catastrophic...

    I doubt it. You don't want to have medics anywhere near artillery. They are valuable and this would put them at much higher risk of getting killed/injured. Such conversion is most likely done to carry ammunition for M109 artillery. It's worth noting however (and I haven't seen this mentioned...

    Does anyone know something about this M60 variant? How many are in service? Apparently it is still in service as of 2021

    Oh, that would make sense why there are no T-80 pictures... Respectfully, did you even read the article? It is clearly stated in the article that the Ramses II was first named as T-54E. There are no Ramses II tanks, the project was abandoned. There are some T-55 modifications though, often...

    You have posted T-55M6 prototype, not an actual T-80 from Egyptian service. And as for the T-55, this picture is from 80s, I am looking for something more modern =/ Also Ramses II Wikipedia page is just wrong. This article by far the most accurate...

    Since you guys are discussing possiblity of K2 tanks in Egypt, I see often times mentioned that Egypt has T-80 tanks. I've found some articles confirming this but no actual pictures. So are there any pictures of Egyptian T-80 tanks? Also some time ago I've been looking for T-55s in Egyptian...

    Actually, ability to fire anti-air missiles also goes for Egyptian ZSU-23-4M4s. As I said earlier, they both have tubes for mounting the MANPADs. The rest is in fire control that wasn't changed since then if I'm not mistaken. It just seems that the Egyptians don't really use this ability

    I disagree. ZSU-23-4M4 can actually fire anti-air missiles. They were specifically upgraded to be able to use 2 9K38 Igla Manpads on each side. Those silver bars are for mounting them. And even though I haven't seen Egyptian Shilkas ever use missiles, the Egypt has a significant amount of 9K38...
