"In 1989 Egypt purchased two Oberon-class submarines from Britain. These submarines would require refitting and modernization before entering Egyptian service."

What has happened to these?



Most likely never got the refitting and modernization let alone just making them safely seaworthy and ended up getting scrapped. That was right at the time when the EN was not really in a good place as far as being a well equipped and capable navy, certainly nothing like it is today and those subs were cold war era built (27 total were built the last ones in 1978) and most likely needed a lot of refitting that it wasn't worth it and never ended up happening.

Either that or they did serve a couple of years at the most and then were junked. But those were pretty large submarines looking at the first pic.

Egyptian air forces arrive in UAE to participate in 'Zayed 3' exercise
Cool that they brought the Rafales to go up against the block 60s. That should be a lot of fun.
The other interesting thing is the one EAF F-16 in the pics is not one of the block 52s. Strange that they didn't bring their best F-16s to the party.

But it's nice to see rare pics of EAF pilots.

Along with associated personnel also.

Hopefully we'll get more pics and even videos of the exercise.

The Egyptian submarine S-44 was greeted in a terrifying and majestic scene by 50 diverse naval vessels in the territorial waters. These naval vessels varied between frigates, carriers, submarines, missile launchers, boats and floats..

I thought this PASSEX between ENS Taba and Dwight D. Eisenhower (or IKE) part of the USS Fifth Fleet a few weeks ago was pretty cool. Involved several ships from both sides including conducting carrier ops with F/A-18 Super Hornets and SAR SeaHawks.

"Product 305" will increase the combat power of the Ka-52 and Mi-28



Ka-52M Alligator attack helicopters received a new complex of electronic equipment and weapons. At the same time, tests of use of the short-range cruise missile "Product-305" reached the final stage, which brings the combat helicopter closer to the level of an attack aircraft.

It should be noted that in terms of armament, the Ka-52M looks more like a heavy tank..and thanks to the coaxial scheme, is able to safely hover in the air.

The cruise missile "Product 305" will allow the Ka-52M to hit tanks and other armored vehicles at a distance of up to 100 km, turning the helicopter into a close analogue of an attack aircraft. Thus, the "Alligator", like a battering ram, will be able to break the enemy's defenses,

About 8.2 feet (2.5 meters), the calibre is about 9.8 inches (250 mm) and weighs between 300 and 440 pounds (150 and 200 kg). The missile is equipped with a powerful warhead, which is said to be capable of destroying main battle tanks and small ships. The Zvezda video also hinted that the new missile is using an infrared seeker.

The Russian news agency TASS reported that the new missile is also known as Izdelye 305 (Product 305). It is designed for the frontline range, equipped with a warhead capable of dealing with hard targets such as concrete shelters and armored vehicles, as well as short-range mobile air defense systems.

The new missile has more than one guidance system, including lock-on after launch, inertial guidance system, and a change of direction on the part of the operator after launching via datalink, It was used for the first time in Syria.The missile will be able to operate effectively day and night, in any weather conditions, and will use the "Fire and Forget" principle.

who ever thinks that a helicopter a kind of tank must be a moron, a tank can survive with multiple hits but a heli is more like a defenseless baby who cant survive with a soft hit

Ka-52M does like look a monster helicopter and heavy but I agree it definitely ain't a tank and can't take even remotely as much and there is frankly no comparison it would be like an elepant vs an ant. It all comes down to how it was created plus you can't make such a heavy helicopter like a tank it would be logistically impossible
