4.5 billion, I think you mean.

But yeah, nations really need to start teaching critical thinking skills to their citizens. The amount of people on this forum who lack the ability to use basic logic is staggering.

On topic: I'm pretty sure nothing is gonna come of this discussion. The Egyptians have nothing Pakistan wants, and the Pakistanis have nothing the Egyptians want. The JF-17 might be the closest thing, but the Egyptians probably don't want them, considering they have the gulf Arabs bankrolling their military with highly advanced western systems.
Does Egypt have access to Meteor BVR? If not then JF-17 can be pretty good for them. Their F-16s are useless for air to air roles. SU-35 is the only potent platform in their arsenal for air to air roles assuming that they won't be getting Meteor.

Egypt will be getting Meteor..
There is also the Mig-35 not only the SU-35..

The F-16s have a US medium range air to air missile that they can use guided by their radars under the cover of Rafale, Mig-35 and SU-35.. So the air force is very potent indeed..

there is no meteor nor aim120 for Egypt the very reason they turned to Russians for r77M

their Rafael will only carry mica due to Israel

unless something changed Now and I missed it

You seem to have missed a lot!
The Meteor was part of the first deal along with the Scalp.. but Meteor work only on the F3R to which the Egyptian Rafales are being upgraded to now as we speak.. this was also part of that first deal..

Egypt bought the Rafale primarily for the meteors, so yes, they likely will be getting them.
