That is wonderful news, and what an ugly-looking submarine. I hope they didn't give up on the Scorpene and settle for these. They have some new technology that is all electrically powered to keep with the new changes in military technology and it's great to see the Egyptian Navy working on that and keeping up with those new technology trends.
The SMX-E was talked about in the Scorpene deal..if you remember..it is not new or a separate news.. might be that Scorpene deal is done since the negotiations were very advanced at that time.. and here they are saying that negos for the SMX-31E are fresh.. this was a French offer!!!

I was just going to call him out on that too, you beat me to it!! :lol: Now I'm worried I hope he's right about the Su-35!
No need to worry about the SU-35SE.. it is a done deal..
The worst that can happen is that Egypt receives them and keep them in hiding till the right moment to show them off.. We have never seen a nation let go of deals already signed and the systems were all produced..let alone Egypt who respects its words and deals ..That could have happened before any production ..just like Indonesia's deal.. you got it Bro.. it is just not possible in the Egyptian case.. The SU-35SE is here to stay in the EAF hands....

Egypt will build the production line which takes a few years.. the T-90MS is coming with ToT..just like the Abrams..

Iris-T SLM system is most likely already in Egypt.. not everything delivered is announced right away..it might take years before seeing it.. like in the case of TOR system..

- The local MBT design will be based on the T-90MS..

- Yes that is the full article in response to @joker87 post..

- A nuclear-powered version is a bit farfetched..
I understand that it takes a few years to do so but I believe the first batch was said to be delivered from Russia. I'm only wondering if there is known date for the first batch.
Egypt is planning it's own design? I don't understand, I thought they wanted 500 T-90MS tanks. That would only complicate things.
As for the Iris-T, I think the deal was signed in 2018 and with contracts like this it usually takes around 3 to 5 years to complete it. Therefore I believe Iris-T isn't in Egypt yet but who knows. Maybe it will be photographed just like S-300VM was.

Is there any other vehicle acquistion/order on the way?
Thanks for answers

Wut up wut up wut wup, maaaan?! Long time no see you on this thread, homestyle? You should check in a lot more frequently, bossman.

So the mysterious Su-35SE; E for Egypt that we made up over here on this thread, BTW, @The SC and myself were talking about it and we said wut the heII, let's call it the SE to make it specially for Egypt because that is what it is, a special model just for Egypt that will alter the balance of air power in the entire ME, even with Israel. So he and I do get the credit for that designation just FYI and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, dangit. :D

But from the info we have so far, Egypt is gonna have to give the US the middle finger on CAATSA and just bring them out. Not worry about the consequences since if you look at the list of likely countries to get sanctioned by the US, the turkeys are listed as a higher probability than Egypt, and the US is already aware that there are at least 5 -- most likely around 17 -- Su-35SEs already in Egypt. Either they do that, or the great Sisi has something up his sleeve as far as working out a deal with the US to not get all bent out of shape and start thinking about sanctioning Egypt since that will only spell trouble for both countries, as well as create havoc and destabilization in the ME. Neither wants that and that aircraft is a MUST for the EAF. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

Perhaps Sisi is working the back channels with the US in his usual, calm, non-panicky and super diplomatic way while coming up with a solution that will calm the US down and allow the EAF to unveil and induct those beautiful beast of the air, InshaAllah.

And according to @joker87 , he has inside information that in fact at least 5 are in Egypt and being flown (additionally to the testing that was going on in Russia) with Egyptian pilots AND will soon be revealed. That is the latest and we're just waiting on that unveiling any day now. Stay tuned.



The SC was not saying the Meko 300 is what Egypt ordered. He and all of us know the EN ordered the Meko 200, he was just asking me if I had seen the Meko 300 and that it might be a possibility in the future IF the EN orders more that they would order the Meko 300, later. Khaleek ma3ana ya Osta.



Very, very, very interesting. Not only do we see for the 2nd or maybe 3rd time ONLY the super heavy weapons the Mrage 2K in the EAF carries, wow. Those are some pretty big bombas yanhar abyad w'm3asel! That is some serious ordinance! Kussomen talata 3al hemeer el buy2oulo Masr m3andahash 7aga keda. Put those with the MiG-29M's KH-38 they just showed video of it today dropping that massive bomba in Sinai that created an explosion they probably heard not only in tel aviv khawal, but in estambul khara also looooool.

OH, and also, it appears they have NOT retired all the Mirage Vs it seems! Nice to see it there as well as the Alpha Jet. The Alpha can be flown for another 10 years if they want. It also carries some of those heavy bombas as well as the Exocet. Not bad for that little crap-kicking jet.



That is wonderful news, and what an ugly-looking submarine. I hope they didn't give up on the Scorpene and settle for these.

That sounds exciting I will have to look more into it. I am still iffy-iffy on Russian tech since the soviet-era my trust on anything russian designed since 91 not that high but they do make reliable small arms that is world famous. SU-line has not impressed me just yet but things could change you never know

DAILY INTELLIGENCE REPORT Egypt
Egypt Air Force, plans to acquire more Su-35 fighters
October 19, 2021
Reports from Cairo suggest that the Egyptian Air Force (EAF) will be receiving a new batch of
Sukhoi Su-35 fighters from Russia’s JSC Sukhoi Company.
The same reports suggest that this comes as part of a recent Egyptian-Russian deal that was
signed at the beginning of 2021.
Egypt will receive eight additional Su-35 fighters as well as flight training simulators.
In addition, Russia’s JSC Sukhoi Company will send a team of specialists to provide engineering
support. The team will be stationed at EAF bases to conduct repairs and offer logistic support
for Egypt’s new and previously acquired Su-35 fighters.
Russia is expected to deliver the new Su-35 fighters within four to five months.
However, the exact date of delivery is still unknown, as JSC Sukhoi Company is currently
modifying the internal software of the fighters, at the request of the EAF command.
In fact, Egypt has asked for the fighter’s software to be made more compatible with Egypt’s
Radar Integration and Surveillance Command Center (RISC2), which is used for communication
and coordination between various types of aircraft.
Sources close to the situation say that Egypt has actually faced difficulties integrating the Su-35
into the RISC2.

Uncertain brother, I am also not sure about the deal, and most likely it did not happen

Usually they receive a dozen or so for evaluation purposes.. from there they make their recommendations to fit their own requirements.. Egypt will make its own version of the T-90MS and its own APS..

Iris-T is already in Egypt..maybe not all the 7 batteries but a few for sure..

There are so many deals going on..from signed, very advanced, advanced to new negotiations.. and a lot of local production going on too..

This is great news. Even if they're having trouble integrating the Su-35 into the new RISC2 SCC, it's great that they're actually doing that. That pretty much puts to bed all the criticisms about the Russian jets being separated from the western ones! Now we know what they're doing to combine the entire fleet into one system that all will share information in real time. Wonderful news.
