Yeah but you have Ka-52 and Mi-24s right?
It's ridiculous to think of the F-15 and the KF-21 starting flight tests this month
Blessed be the lack of PR on our side:
If the KF-21 is successful, the concept is to move on to a stealth-optimized Block 3 model with an internal weapons bay. The KF-21’s underbelly weapon hardpoints are already semi-recessed into the fuselage to reduce the protruding missile’s prominence..F-15? What do you mean? The EX which is the latest has undergone flight testing over a year ago, February of 2021. Not sure what you mean about that. Please clarify, is this a new model?
Boeing conducts the first test flight of the F-15EX fighter jet, successfully tests the airplane's avionics and software before deliveries beginwww.autoevolution.com
It also fired what the USAF claims to be the record for the longest air to air missile from the F-15EX back in February of this year. They didn't list the actual distance since that stuff remains classified, but they did make a statement that it chattered any previous and current long-distance records. I think the Russians and especially MBDA Meteor might have something to say about that but it's something to keep an eye on. They claim it was the AIM-120D. Scary to think that they still have the AIM-260 coming up.

The KF-21 is great and what an accomplishment, I just can't believe they didn't design it with internal weapon's bay?! That's like building a fighter jet that only has a gun and cannot fire any missiles! What were they thinking?!
This!The problem in Egypt remains the failure to give any qualified positions to manage the affairs of scientific research or industrial planning for the proper technological orientation by building real capabilities under the control of defects in the administration in Egypt. Egypt is not separated by talents or scholars, but is only led by corrupt people
The F-15EX was not shown, but the most that was shown by the F-15SA or F-15E used aircraft
Even the AIM-120D missiles were not on display, but the most important thing was the AIM-120C5 and also the rejection of the AIM-260 missiles if they were in service.
modified froggy's pic to better explain
my question is.. in the future, can the semi-recessed bay version be modified to use the full bay in the future?
The Koreans use a gradual policy in the field of aircraft development to ensure the success of the project with realistic capabilities of the aircraft to overcome the problems of the F-35 project
"Kroons"? A7a lool. Speaking of cruise missiles, saw this the other day thought it was neat. Please answer the preceding questions so we can learn more and have the accurate information.The Kroons are developing a
Oh boy if we start discussing how generations of engineers graduated only to meet a bad fate regarding careers because of the economy being mainly reliant on tourism...
R&D, weapons development and modifications seems to be restricted to TMC graduates who, by acceptance criteria, are at the very bottom of the Egyptian engineers list.
Now: Think of how Cairo University is the only public university to have an Aerospace Engineering program, and then you would have TMC and Zewail City also providing AE, the former obviously having engineers with very low grades, the latter very few in size.
And then comes New Mansoura University, where in its AE program description it clearly stated it helped students be suited to opportunities abroad...
The next thing you know, either those people are looking for masters abroad because of the lack of specialized masters in Egypt, or prolly start their military service by offering technical service in the EAF’s middle country bases. An absolute waste for students who get a formidable bachelors degree from CU or Zewail.
Egypt does offer great engineering bachelors, but it stops right there! No internships except data analysis, document translation and quality control, jokes!
Now you would wonder why Egypt is lacking the needed engineers and scientists to match Turkey, Israel, Italy etc...
The governments have long insisted to rely on tourism when it comes to economy, our military finds pleasure in idiotic secrecy and rather continues with propaganda approaches till this day, has combated technical discussion in warfare by prevent military historians from access to their own claims regarding wars, it was only after 2011 that Group 73 Historians appeared on the scene, as well as the connections with veterans.
You need to make warfare a thing spoken of rationally so that new generation become interested in it.
Not enough graduates from public universities that can work sufficiently in military industries.
And last but not least, your not-so-super technical military college graduates and barely enough to maintain the large army you choose to maintain.
