Indeed, the deal was in 2011 and was not completed by Nigeria, but I was not sure of it
Ana mesh fahem will we get them yes or no hahaha.They were supposed to go to Nigeria first? I'm confused! lol
I think so. Not sure if that was the reason that particular deal fell through or not, but it seems like the EGY military rarely deals with any Scandinavian countries and especially Sweden.
Egypt's mirage V/2000 fleet is less heard off, we learn about the Falcons because the Americans speak about them... I can't tell because there is nothing under my hands that says _enough_ about it (even with access to domestic and online university-level archives). The Mirage 2000s not being equipped with MICAs is something I fail to understand in all aspects.@ARCH٤R , remember these gorgeous Mirage Vs? And this was one of the 24 aircraft the EAF sent to France to upgrade them with the Horus package by Sagem which upgraded their avionics and SNA Comms and a few other items. Military Aviation had an article on when these and this particular upgrade package where they claimed it made these Mirage Vs better than the 2000s in the fleet. Not sure of the validity of that although MA magazine is quite reputable and has never made bogus claims. The only problem is that if they were in fact better equipped and capable than the 2000s, why would the EAF retire them and keep the 2Ks in service?! That doesn't make sense, actually. So something is a bit off with that scenario.
Most likely yes. Egypt wants to produce locally a new LIFT aircraft to replace the old K-8 and Alpha Jet and old F-16 and maybe the mig-21 and j-7. That's why we have some options that countries have already offered their aircrafts. South Korea offered T/FA-50, India the Tejas, Pakistan JF-17, Italy M-346. Now the competition is between Tejas and FA-50. And logically, India will offer more ToT than SK. Plus India and Egypt worked together on H-300 but failed because of the 67 war and funds. And Egypt wanted to buy the BrahMos and there is some rumor saying that maybe we will produce some parts or the missile locally. And maybe also the Astra missile that will come with the deal if it is done because we need an indigenous or JV AAM to mount on our Rafales MIG-29 etc...Indian defence channels reporting Tejas fighter jet potential export to Egypt how true it is?
Ana mesh fahem will we get them yes or no hahaha.
I hope our leadership will learn every lesson from this war. Buy sophiscated thing from the West and not Russia or maybe buy from China which will or is already taking the place from Russian in terms of defense industry. They are devoloping what Russia can't do because of the sanctions, their technology ability etc...These pics are actually very depressing. To see how the Russians have destroyed their reputation as the 2nd leading military power in the world in just a few months of some of the worst display of warfare and of their equipment is beyond embarrassing.
Nothing official rn. No one has officialized that Egypt gave up on them neither Egypt or Russia. So till now Egypt is continuing the deal. But there is a high chance that we gave up on them. Honestly if we have bad EW, radar etc.. then I don't want it honestly. If they are bad quality equipment anyone with good equipments can jam then we are f*cked.Shokran jazeelan ya akhy. Is the Su-35 for Iran deal true?
But maybe there is a deal with India for building locally the Tejas MK1A with its equipments.Shokran jazeelan ya akhy. Is the Su-35 for Iran deal true?
