    Hardly... 99% of Jordanians and the king himself don't actually like Israel. After all it was his father who had the peace agreement, not him.

    As per 2011

    Egypt manufactured about 40% and imported 60% of the components for the 555 tanks produced.

    https://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/egypt/m1a1.htm

    The percentage is much higher now..some say 80 to 90%

    What is that 40%?
    Tank turrets, canon,m2 machine guns,transmission,power plant, teat cartridges,maintenance spare and repair parts, maintenance, support equipment, special tool and test equipment, personnel training and equipment, publications and technical documentation is provided by US.



    I just googled that:

    https://www.defenceweb.co.za/land/l...livers-m1a1-abrams-tank-turrets-to-egypt/amp/

    https://www.dsca.mil/major-arms-sales/egypt-co-production-m1a1-abrams-tank

    Almost 40 US contractor & companies were involved in above sales to Egypt.

    Wonder if 40% includes chasis of abrams? Because US certain aint giving you senstive technology not unless you are israel.

    Even the armour is produced in US and is downgraded export version.

    April 2011

    Meeting of the official / Mr. Meshaal minister of war production in Egypt on the first channel on Egyptian television:

    Mr. Meshaal: We have seen a huge boom ... We are making the Abrams at a level that exceeds American production
    We can get the engine from anywhere ... We are integrated with the Arab Authority For Manufacturing

    He said: "War Production is fine, and there is a great renaissance. In the last ten years we spent 14 billion Egyptian pounds ($5 billion) on military production and established 60 new factories, and we have achieved a breakthrough in the capacity of production. "Meshaal noted that Egypt is producing about 75 percent of the US M1A1 tank at a level exceeding United States production, explaining that the production of the tank engine in Egypt is not economically feasible.

    He noted that there had been a major surge in the military production program in the early 1980s when Egypt entered the manufacture of heavy weapons such as tanks and heavy guns
    Radars and other various military industries.

    Meshaal confirmed that there is a continuous development in the military industrialization in Egypt, but there is a degree of confidentiality required by the nature of work that prevents the continuous detection of this development.

    Stressing that the outside world has become confident in the level of Egyptian military production. He explained that the defense industry in Egypt has become very sophisticated and that Egypt is producing a tank gun with very high technology and many Arab countries have asked to cooperate with us in this technology, pointing out that Egypt is trying to reach the production of smart munitions. Egypt has an ambitious program, with more than 60 factories being built in the last ten years for production of all types of ammunition and explosives, as well as the required fuel for certain types of missiles.

    Here is the progression of the Egyptian M1A1 to M1A2:

    Hi Nahid how is it possible for Russia to supply something top of their line to a country which is
    Purchasing American technology also I’m pretty much sure about su57 is something like f22 to USA they haven’t supplied these to Israel also there should be a second tier stealth beside su57
    If Russia has to export it to other countries like China is trying out with J31
    Your input will be appreciated
    Thank you

    Su-57 is no where near close to matching the capabilities to the F-22. To put it frankly, China and Russia can't compete with stealth tech.

    Hi thx for your reply I’m not comparing any of these with each other but just a thought how come some country with it’s top notch invention ( even to your standards it’s top notch for that country) can export it to another country which also have ties with their rival countries
    Just a thought
    Your input will be appreciated
    Thank you

    Before a military parade no one knows that Egyptians have s300 and buk m2 and more weapons If Egypt was hidden that until a parade was better
