Egypt fighter deal still ruffling American feathers
It's crazy because what is the US going to do when the EAF orders a large batch of Su-57s? It's only a matter of time that will happen with the way things have gone, the writing is on the wall, it's just when. But if the EAF can't even put an AIM-120 on one of its 200+ F-16s, what the heck is it supposed to do? There's only so many Rafales the EAF can buy, so eventually the Russian fighters are just too good and come with major weapons for the money.

So it will be really interesting to see how this develops and if the US does in fact impose sanctions on Egypt because of the Su-35 and what happens to that relationship then? I don't think the Biden administration can be effective and show it's not scared of losing any friendship over definitive policy it needs to impose. What the extent of these sanctions would be? Not sure, maybe that's how the Biden Admin can show a little love by not making it too nasty or whatever and just send a message. But either way, it needs to do something otherwise it gets eaten alive and will be called a wimp and the same as the Trump Admin.

In the meantime, Tahya Misr getting some aerial lifeline.

Hey so @The SC & @Philip the Arab & @Lord Of Gondor and anyone else who would be interested, turns out this is specifically the KH-35UE. Originally it was listed as just the E which would make it only a ship/sea cruise missile. But the UE now makes it a 260 km ranged land or sea cruise missile and in that Facebook video with all that crazy footages (including the incredible few seconds that show one of the EAF MiG-29M/35 buddy-buddy refueling an EAF Rafale!!!! lol) it shows the launch sequence in this picture here as they drop this KH-35UE on one of the cretins' hiding places and what an explosion it creates lmao. If I can get that video, I will and post it. Waiting for it to possibly end up on You Tube to make the posting easy.

This is also from that video I think. The cast of fighters minus the Rafale. F-16blk 52 and MiG-29M/35.

If you ever get a chance to check out the entire video of that, it's worth it. They show some pretty rare F-16 dumb bomb drops also with the F-16 pitching towards the target, then dropping the Mk-83 probably and then lifting away. Very old school stuff. This is right after they've dropped their GBU-12 laser-guided bombs lol.

Here's the quick catch off that video of what I was referring to earlier. A single MiG-29M/35 buddy-buddy refueling a Rafale. So there is some universal fittings to those baskets as well as the probe ends. Very cool & interesting. I'm guessing an airforce like the Indian Air Force also does this frequently because of their vast numbers of varying aircraft with the buddy-buddy capability. Just they're used to seeing it often so it's no big deal. For us it's a completely new phenomenon.

Egyptian female police officers are becoming much more popular in the women's police academy. There are quite a few serving with the United Nations peace keeping forces in central Africa and other places. Soon we might see an introduction of females in the armed forces. They can certainly play a huge role in the non-operational sector of the military as an introduction.

I'd hate to have to use a G3 as a service weapon especially if I was a woman.

Even the UN female is using a G36. The AR 70/90 became instantly popular once they showed up in Egypt a while back, especially with the police units which they seem to be relegated to.

The newly formed anti-terrorism police unit Black Cobra.

@Lord Of Gondor , some more stills from the video with those unmarked EAF Mirage 2K taking off. I'll tell ya, not often do you see these types of long, low level take offs that you see US display teams do a lot of. I've even witnessed a few of those types of takeoffs by the F-22 Raptor and F-15 as it seems to be a crowd pleaser. Plane takes off with 2/3 of the runway left and it moves off to one side and stays low for a while until it reaches close to the end of the runway and pilot pulls back the stick and goes vertical. Too bad they didn't catch the whole sequence here, just part of the low level after takeoff. The EAF Rafales do it occasionally as well as the MiG-29Ms.

The camo is just spectacular!
Did you know:
The Russians faced so many swarm drone attacks on Khmemim and absolutely diddly squat was done on ANY air asset of the RuFAF.
Despite the sanctions and other coercive measures they have demonstrated air superiority in a complex environment.
The Su-35S is still the backbone of the same.
Props to the Russians.
