    Egypt has long been neutralized through non military means.

    I see what you mean. Egyptian F16s are probably of "no use" because US stopped supplying weapons and spares for it after the coup? Serves Egypt right...signed peace deal, and now you cant even get the weapons promised form the peace deal...thats called a LOSE LOSE situation...smh..also, even if you have all the equipment i the world but dont have money to fund a war your military is essentially a toothless tiger.

    umm....truth dot com!

    This questions is Dead on Arrival due to Peace deal..next question pls.

    No, because of the peace deal.

    Where is the money coming to Egypt from ?
    Inflation is 30 percent and they are building cities and buying weapons.

    Range would not be a problem.Since the aircraft(Single seat) has a maximum internal fuel capacity of 5.2 tons and has a range of 2400kms on internal fuel.The Main problem will be F-116 Block-52s of IAF and ofcourse F-35.

    THen Egypt must be diversifying military equipment because the potential for that to happen in the future is not that low...or to get better prices for military equipment.

    Maybe they are buying it for long range attacks, I dont think Migs are that much capable in multirole than F-16

    No need to sell them jf17 . Russians seems okay with sharing their tech with israel ( Egypt) but we should be carefull . Any thing that israel detects will be offloaded to india, who will make us pay for our mistake.
