There is a big chance. Someone (a journalist) close to the Egyptian Ministry of Military Production, who interviewed multiple times the minister, said that the deal done at 70%.
I am very surprised that France is willing to export it's nuclear powered attack submarine. I thought that they could not be exported abroad due to sensitive information.

Sounds like a good deal for Egypt. 6 SSGN for "only" 5 billion euro. Though it would more expensive per unit.

@The SC you reckon how our new AD will look like? For me either something like Iris-t/Tor or a stationed system like Amoun/Iron Dome
I guess it might be the Belarus Buk-MB3K (with an AESA radar).. with inputs from the US, China and South Korea..

This one was proposed to Egypt..but it can also be a totally different system..based on western or other eastern air defense systems..

It is certainly not nuclear yet, given the lateness of the signed deal

We never thought they will be nuclear propulsed.. but since the US and the UK have destroyed the Australian-French deal with nuclear propulsed submarines and the fact that India had leased nuclear propulsed Russian subs.. Who knows!? it is all open..

Woah! Great new pic of Al Galala Bergamini FREMM and the beast that it is. Best looking frigate out there today. Can't wait to see all 6 of these running alongside the 6 MEKO A200s with the FREMM Aquitaine leading all 13 modern stealthy frigates in the EN.

Beast Mode.

Another new pic.

Gowind is one of the sexiest looking lethal corvettes out there. Look at this thing!

View attachment 878503

And here's that mix of new & older frigates which the latter would still be of great usefulness for several decades to come.

View attachment 878508

Even the US holds on to its Knox & Perry Class frigates with upgrades and especially arming them with Tomahawk missiles which is the next step for EN heavy ships to do. Get them loaded with deadly land attack capabilities with something of the caliber of Tomahawk cruise missiles.

View attachment 878509

This might be the exact thing we get used to seeing in the future of the Egyptian Navy, one of its Gowinds escorting one of its aircraft carriers with Rafale Ms on deck. What would they name the first aircraft carrier in the Egyptian Navy? That would be interesting to hear you fellas guesses. Mohammad Ali?

View attachment 878504

This locally built Swift patrol ships might just be part of the Italian mega deal and the part that has the EN acquiring or building its own 20 Falaj patrol ships. I believe Alexandria Shipyard is up the 26 of these beauties already built.

View attachment 878510

Hope to see these red on white ambulatory AW-189s working as coast guard MEDIVAC aids soon enough.

View attachment 878511

We've seen these guys already with their modified rocket launchers and obviously army detachment with the desert camo.

View attachment 878512

I do wonder if these AW-149s will take the place of the UH-60 Blackhawks VIP helicopters? Or add to them? Need more coloration or patterns or camo to these instead of the all-white and large Egyptian flag on the tail. Also some better self-protection systems. Wonder if they could/would use President-S systems on these western-built helos?

View attachment 878515

Rafale is much larger than the lonely F-16, since the MiG-29M/M2 also towers over the little American jet.

View attachment 878483

GBU-16 on block-52 headed to Libya.

View attachment 878497

Dedicated quadrant section for the western border surveillance command center.

View attachment 878518

M-109 Self-propelled Howitzer. Wonder if they will keep these once they meet their count of K-9 Thunder SPHs? Or will they retire them because of their extensive maintenance required?

View attachment 878522

Type 209 in German dusk calm waters.

View attachment 878519

Rangers. These guys go through a brutal training and qualifying regiment. Might be just as tough as the SEALS which is brutal!

Can anyone name the SF group this fella belongs to?

One of my favorite pics of the EAF with 44 F-16s being led by 4 Rafales and trailed by 4 Mirage 2ks.

1663120254525.png


Cairo West Airbase,

1663121977266.png


The new hangers they built for the block 52s are state of the art with blast doors and some other secret goodies.

1663120477618.png


We're yet to see what the heck the US is offering on this phantom EAF F-16 mega upgrade. That's the problem with them just like McKenzie said is they take too damn long and it's always a stupid and needless slog (whatever the stupid crap that means) but look how long it's taking to get some gaddam relief on these aircraft or make a friggin decision on the Su-35s. Just a royal pain in the a$$.

And remember the recent shot of the many F-16s flying in that killer formation with the US tanker and we saw 4 of the original F-16Bs! The 2 seaters that were designated B models before they came out with the D model!! That's just mind-blowing that they still flew those and the perfect condition they were in.

Maybe these amazing hangars have a lot to do with protecting those beauties for so long. The size of this hanger for a single aircraft just goes to show how much effort the EAF puts into maintaining its aircraft.

1663120668120.png


What are they going to do with this goofy camo on these K-9 Thunders? Hope they paint them with the straight and simple desert sand that's on the majority of Egyptian armor.

1663121030560.png


@Buschlaid , supposedly this is a modified "D30" Russian artillery mounted on M109 chassis at Mohammed Naguib base inspection. What do you think of that? Perhaps this might be their thinking to make that change to the 109s?

1663124970467.png


@Foinikas , if you have a spare 9 minutes to kick around, this would be worth it for you as it's a MUCH better video on the Mohammad Naguib military base that shows a lot more of the amenities that the previous video, I linked for you did not. From minute 4:30 check out all the cabinetry with all the weapons that are stored in these cabinets which we're not sure if they're for use or exhibit, but there are a lot of them! Then from 4:30 on you'll see much better shots of the auditorium, the sports facilities, the cafeterias, the room & board buildings for studying students who come to Egypt for several weapons & training exercises as well as apartments for other visiting militaries that have co-ed enlisted men and women, so they have their own, safe, secure and private living quarters. Then there are all the farms that grow foods to make the place almost as self-sufficient as possible and sewer treatment plants as well as desalination and solar electricity and so much more. This was a great porject put together by the Egyptian military engineers and architects and a complete success. Enjoy it if you have the time like I said, at least start at 4:30 and on as much as you can if you don't feel like watching the whole thing. Cheers.


Here's the auditorium.

1663126385407.png


Housing for the room & board students and visiting armies.

1663126619635.png


1663126823104.png


1663126320827.png


This is the occasional exhibition of pure Egyptian adrenalin mixed with most likely small dosages of steroids but just enough to help the bulk and lead the energy! :D

1663126483201.png


Brutal obstacle courses in that desert heat can kill you if you're any kind of weakling or not hydrated enough,

1663126545581.png

1663121097403.png

1663121112050.png

1663121124305.png


I could never figure out why they got rid of the roundel on the fuselage? Shame they didn't apply it on the sky-blue camo scheme. Same with the Rafales, they chose not to add the forward fuselage roundel. Look how nice it looks, especially on these M2 2-seaters.

1663123195466.png


1663124466715.png


1663124660634.png


Another shot of the French Caesar howitzer when it was being tested in Egypt around the same time as the K-9 Thunder in early 2017.

1663123354603.png


Check out the lethality of the AIM-9X. This missile is absolutely filthy. When the Russians invented 40 degrees off boresight in the R-73, it was the latest and greatest short range killer missile that no enemy could ever get away from. That prompted the US (and others mainly MIcA & MDBA) to come up with a similar missile that once fired can turn more than the R-73's 45 degree off boresight and they succeeded with the AIM-9X. And this is the early prototype which has since improved exponentially with the combined use of the JHMCS.

I'll look for the R-73 video if there is any and try to compare. Better yet, if they have one out for the latest R-74 would be better but for now, it would be hard to beat the AIM-9X. El m3araseen el Amreekan dol!

I'd love to see them start using pharaoh names, especially Tutankhamun. The only problem with that is the religious fellas might start a big stink out of that being the whole symbolism of ancient Egyptian deities consisted of exactly what Islam is completely opposed to.

Ever notice that they really haven't named any piece of military equipment with names of pharaohs? Do you or any others know of any? I can't seem to remember a single one which leads me to think there is some strong truth to my line of reasoning. And BTW, sorry I forgot the answer your question on the last post that yes, I have 3 Maadis, 2 from the 80s prior to the ban and one from about 10 years ago. They're all in mint condition and fire extremely well. Let me check the schedule and see if we can plan something before the cold sets in and if not, we'll definitely set it up for the spring. We do occasionally put teams together and fight it out with paint. Talk about super fun! At my age and because of my recent vicious illness, that sport is starting to get a little tough on the old legs and stamina lol. :D

Looking forward so much to this air defense system. Which countries we must cooperate to get the best ToT options?

That's a very dumb and closed minded reason to not name things after pharoahs, we don't believe in what they believed but rather we use their names because of the history and heritage. Italy designates some of its things from Roman times, Greece from hellenec times, Germany from early Germania. We're too rich in hostory to not do so, screw the religious nuts.

Mostly people will not even care because they aren't interested in military. Like for example we have Midan Ramses (which for them will be the Moses pharaoh and it is still a theory), Nut drone etc... Our New Administrative Capital is based on the architecture of our ancestors.
