AFAIK there are continuous flight between Egypt and Russia carried out by Egyptian Transport Aircrafts. Initially I thought they could be transporting the RISC2 system to be installed on the Sukhois but who knows what they were actually lifting. I don’t think any Egyptian MiG-29M2s flew to Russia for upgrades since their arrival, one would question if these upgrades can be carried out in Egypt but I think the answer is no.
Bro.. the RISC2 is an Egyptian System.. part of the Egyptian own C5Isr.. it has nothing to do with Russia..

Why not ..if only the radar and some avionics needed to be upgraded in Egypt.. we know that Egypt don't send its systems to be upgraded somewhere else but in Egypt.. Most of the time..And that is like 95% of the time..

Some pics from the Russian naval exercise opening ceremony.



I believe these are pilots of the Seasprites.







New pic of EAF Su-35SE #9213



@HD Seeker-5000 , it appears you were right, my bro, about the white circle on the front side of the fuselage. It wasn't the place for the roundel as some of the other fellas claimed it would be but it's rather a dedicated access panel for some avionics or something related to the massive IRBIS radar or data or something like that. Some of the close-up pics you can see it clearly as an access panel.

Looks like it's just you and me on this thread now, bro lol. Where the heck is everyone?! Sheesh. Oh well, once the Su-35s arrive and we start getting more pictures of them, might get better participation.

BTW, that Saif Al Arab get-together was pretty cool. Something you don't see very often when another country brings some heavy equipment with them like those very cool LeClerk tanks (looks like they still belong to the UAE and not Jordan just yet) and even all the personnel lining up their equipment for the others to see. And also it seems we forget about the Mohammad Naguib center and how incredibly massive and modern it is with its theater and the entire complex and its amenities probably hosts all those members of the other forces in style and creates good camaraderie to be in an area like that. We haven't seem much about it in a while until now.

HaHaHa!..yes all the other participants are waiting for the SU-35, the Italian Fremm and the MEKO-200!!!..they need patience as all these are extraordinary systems..

Yes that base is grandiose.. and this exercise in particular is concentrating on SF supported by the air force and the navy somehow.. and most noteworthy is the staggering number of exercises by The Egyptian armed forces in 2020..
