    Egypt signs $2bn deal for 50 fighter jets from Russia

    27/08/2019

    Egyptian Air Force has signed a military agreement to buy 50 MiG-35 warplanes from Russia the US’ National Interest reported on Saturday.

    The $2 billion deal, the largest in the post-Soviet era, was signed between Cairo and Moscow in April 2015, under which Egypt will receive the warplanes by 2020. It comes following joint negotiations that took place between the two countries in November 2013 over Egypt’s purchase of 24 MiG-29M fighter jets from Russia.

    MiG-35 is a revision of the basic MiG-29. The aircraft features a more robust multi-role capability with enhanced use of air-to-air and air-to-ground high-precision weapons. Also, it has an increased combat range owing to an increase in its internal fuel capacity.

    Mutual cooperation between the two countries developed after Al-Sisi was sworn into office on June 2014, particularly at the level of military aid, however, relations strained after a Russian passenger jet crashed over the Sinai Peninsula in October 2015.

    The resumption of Russian air traffic to the Egyptian capital of Cairo last year played a significant role in mitigating relations between the two countries.

    In December 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin paid a visit to Egypt, during which he agreed to build Egypt’s Al-Dabaa nuclear power plant. He also visited the North African country in February 2015 to attend the signing of several deals between Cairo and Moscow.

    Not true.

    This has nothing to do with any potential future JF-17 for EAF.

    Still alot of aircraft to potentially replace.

    And EAF doesnt seem to have a problem operating types from a variety of sources like the InAF.

    Also, the article's subject is old news.

    Mi 35 is an excellent fighter but with crappy avionics and air to air missiles it's relevance and lethality are questionable at Best.

    Egypt has ordered more Mig 35 jets than even Russian Air Force has. Bravo to their leadership, lol.

    I have no doubt the JF-17 better than the MIG-35 electronically but agility goes to the MIG-35 for sure

    eygpt had around 200 f16s and 200 potential replcaements needed for mig 21 & f7s/mirage5

    it got 20 more f16s..going to get around 36 more rafales and probably another 100 mig 35..this owuld cover its requirements

    & range/payload..
    mig35 is sure better no doubt
    only winning point is cost
    electronics probably chinese are better than russians at this stage

    You don't need both actually the load of the jf-17 not bad for bombing all you need two tons of heavy bombs like 250 or 500 kg that's big now with laser guided one all you need four of them with pinpoint now for A2A missions the range should be long enough as the A2A weapons are lighters
