    IRST has range 100+ km.

    Israel operated Mirage III and F-4 at the same time. Shouldn't be an issue with Su-35 and Rafale. F-16 is getting retired in a decade or two. Really old frames.

    Egypt has never operated a heavy fighter before. Su-35 is a size class bigger than MiG-29M/M2. Be interesting if Egypt does get Su-35.

    Egypt did..its SU-35s are being manufactured as we speak.. those sanction talks are empty.. they did the same with India for its purchase of the S-400 and than backed off..Turkey is an exception because it is a NATO member..

    CAATSA is a new law that requires the America president to sanction any country that buys anything from Russia, Iran, North Korea. It was passed by congress with over 99% support.

    Basically trying to monopolize American military exports to allies. Its a stupid law that and could cause allies to leave America.

    That is what Trump said..but Congress always play the bad cop when it comes to the Middle East in particular..mainly bringing up Usrael's security.. and in this case it is quite displaced, 'cause Usrael has the F-35.. and Su-35 is in par with the F-15, meaning that even with this Egyptian deal, the EAF will still be a half generation behind the IAF ..that is why Egypt will be allowed to get its SU-35s..
