    They won't. They cannot anger Egypt for a minute. The Israeli border...

    Do you know if any progress was made with the missile and if it works with Su-35?

    They didn't want to offer anything, and the F-16s are used for A2G and anti ship missile. This was the only reasonable option for a air superiority fighter.

    Considering the options superb choice. Su-35 is a beast.

    Doubt it...If they had a plan to sanction, they would have threatened Egypt before the SU35 contract negotiation. Beside the US needs Egypt as ally.

    It is kind of a childish way as well too to think they can prevent Egypt from diversifying its arms. If they do so they risk loosing a very important and strategic allay in the middle east. It is there problem that they are not able to offer the best military gear in the world to clients any more.

    If US sanction Egypt then Egypt will never buy another fighter jet or AWAC or helicopter from US ever again so I doubt they dare to do that.

    Egypt bought Su-35 to counter Turkish F-16. Su-35 is vastly superior to F-16C.

    Do we need Su-35 to counter the Turkish F-16C operating AIM-120B with 73 km range while we have R-27ER missiles with up to 130km range and R-77 missiles with up to 110km range on our Migs? Not to mention the current Rafale armament and the rest that coming?

    We buy weapons for any possible enemy in a volatile region, not for a single or certain nation in particular.

    Yet I agree that purchasing Su35 was a great decision. Thanks to the political leadership that took a decision that should have been taken decades ago, and pushed to implement it in a record time.

    A PAF F16 has successfully downed an IndAF Su-30 while it was carrying Israeli EW, avionics etc!!! Not to mention it was being guided and protected by Israeli AWACS and ground based AD!!! On top of it, a Israeli pilot was also inside that plane....

    Israel's time-line to destroy the entire Egyptian AF is a couple of hours any time of the day....

    Israelis and Indians are no fools!!! In my hometown they run the major companies with a revenue totaling in trillions of $s...

    Haram IN, Haram OUT...

    I think you meant Su-24. No Su-30 has ever been shot down.

    Turkey lays claims to Egypt due to irrendentism. Erdogan's expansionist policy has Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Greece, Lebanon, KSA, Cyprus spooked.
