Egypt has 14 T-80UKs and 20 T-80Us it purchased in 1997.. a total of 34..


T-55 to be replaced by the T-90 MS
You have posted T-55M6 prototype, not an actual T-80 from Egyptian service.
And as for the T-55, this picture is from 80s, I am looking for something more modern =/

Also Ramses II Wikipedia page is just wrong. This article by far the most accurate: https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/modern/Egypt/ramses-ii.php

Oh, that would make sense why there are no T-80 pictures...

Respectfully, did you even read the article? It is clearly stated in the article that the Ramses II was first named as T-54E. There are no Ramses II tanks, the project was abandoned. There are some T-55 modifications though, often mistaken for Ramses II. Some of them are actually even called Ramses. The picture you have sent is of T-55E Mk0. Egypt might still be using some of these E variants (Mk0, I and II) although quantity of T-55E Mk0s were sent to Libya.

Great tank talk. I don't want to side track from that, but just another batch of pics from Medusa 11.

Egypt is seeking to enter the field of smart missile production, as the country is heading seriously to build a respectable military industrial base, and perhaps the Egyptian products at IDEX 2021 are the best evidence of Egypt's intention to enter the world of heavy military industries.

Among the most prominent munitions expected to be produced locally are the AASM Hammer bombs on Rafale fighters, which are classified as one of the most accurate bombs in the world with their high destructive power.

Hummer bombs, if they were actually produced locally, would represent a major qualitative leap for the Egyptian Air Force in the field of smart munitions production, because first, it would achieve self-sufficiency in Rafale fighters and could even be integrated into other fighters. Secondly, gaining experience from obtaining technology to manufacture advanced bombs such as the Hummer of different weights, and it is believed that France will not refuse to transfer the bomb technology, especially in light of the distinguished relations between the two sides, and the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the Emirates Defense Companies Council today, Thursday, at IDEX 2021.

In addition to the hammer, there is also the opportunity to transfer the technology of the Emirati Al-Tariq smart bombs, which officially appeared in the armament of the F-16 and Mirage 2000 fighters. There are 3 different versions of the bomb with different ranges (40 km - 120 km - 200 km) and it is expected that they will be produced in Egypt, especially with its integration on Egyptian fighters, especially that the Egyptian Air Force will need large numbers of them for Egyptian fighters, which may ensure that Egypt obtains the right to manufacture them, especially with the strong Egyptian-Emirati relations.

AASM Hammer bomb is unique in the sense that it has features of both a missile and a glide bomb.

AASM comprises a frontal guidance kit and a rear-mounted range extension kit matched to a dumb bomb. The weapon is modular because it can integrate different types of guidance units and different types of bombs.

The basic version features a 250-kilogram (550 lb) bomb plus hybrid inertial navigation system (INS) / Global Positioning System (GPS) guidance. Other variants add infrared homing or laser guidance to increase accuracy; there are also versions with 125-kilogram (276 lb), 500-kilogram (1,100 lb) or 1,000-kilogram (2,200 lb) bomb bodies.

Egypt will pay $2 billion for the K9 Thunder transfer of technology and its manufacture..

And it is not only about the cannon, but it is a complete set of artillery systems and equipment and ammunition with the transfer of technology and the cost of establishing production lines in Egypt.

Egypt will also manufacture the entire body and turret of the K9 locally.



The Egyptian army concluded several military agreements with the South Korean side, especially after the flexibility shown by the latter in the field of transferring manufacturing and advanced technology to Egypt.

In addition to transferring the technology of manufacturing the South Korean K-9 gun, Egypt will also manufacture the South Korean K-10 ARV crawler reloading machine, which is responsible for resupplying the K-9 gun.

The tracked vehicle is built on the same chassis as the cannon. It is 8.5 meters long, 3.4 meters wide, 3.7 meters high, and weighs 47 tons.
It travels at a maximum speed of 62 km per hour, has a range of 360 km, and has a crew of 3, armed with a 7.62 mm machine gun
It has armor that protects it from 14.5 mm rounds, artillery and bomb fragments.

The crawler carries up to 104 155mm shells, automatically reloads the cannon, and carries up to 504 propellant charges. The cannon has a reloading speed of up to 10 rounds per minute.

The cannon carries up to 48 shells, and when the shells run out, the K-10ARV crawler reloads it again.

It seems that Egypt has obtained the technology of the fully wheeled armored combat vehicle, not just the tower, and Egypt has modified the tower to add anti-armor missiles.

UAE just bought 80 Rafales, lets hope deal includes integration of all Halcon munitions on the platform hopefully.

They are also developing an air to air missile in the future that can be used on Rafale if the Europeans are stingy with the Meteor.

This deal will increase interoperability with the EAF.

Signing of a deal or memorandum of understanding, (no comments on it yet).. but expect something from three It is either a deal for making some ammunition and spare parts locally or the development of the existing Rafale planes to the F-3R standard and additional munitions such as the Meteor, Scalp and Hummer 1000, or an additional deal for 24 fighters before operating the production lines get busy with the huge deal of the Emirati brothers, but from the picture, it looks like not a simple deal..
