Egypt's officially declared enemy number 1 is still state of Israel. That is what Egypt Military prepares for and that is what they train for. That is why Israel always made sure that Egypt doesn't get ballistic and cruise missiles. Also right now USA has their guy ruling Egypt. But he could get dislodged and replaced by Mullah regime that Arab Spring has shown.You believe Egypt is a threat to Israel?
History has nothing to do with it, it is all about the present and future, Egypt has been a good lapdog since quite sometime now, any such procurements are aimed towards Turkey.
