Turkey threatened Egypt EEZ and also threatened Egypt interests in Libya. Egypt needs modern weapons to deal with Turkish threat under unstable minded Erdogan

Egypt has credible deterence against Turkey conflict is off the table in their relations it is more like a position of strength to strength relations. Turkey is slightly stronger of the two but not by much to rollover them just slightly because Egypt has been tirelessly purchasing an trying to stay within distance and working hard to close the gap

Turkiye in no way threatens the Egyptian EEZ. Take the trouble to do two minutes of research on what you claim. On the contrary, Turkiye argues that a very serious EEZ area belonging to Egypt has been tried to be usurped by the Greek Cypriot administration and Greece for years.

Turkiye has never sought or had any intention of annexing any Exclusive economic zone, landmass or island belonging to the Egyptian people. None of the problems between the two countries are based on insurmountable geopolitical reasons, on the contrary, it is very easy to become parallel. May God have mercy on the enemies of these states when that day comes, because we will not.

From the two maps you posted are you saying Egypt and Greece agreed on EEZ between them that involves Turkish EEZ? Wouldn't Turkey be up in arms about that and want to prod Egyptians e.g. in Libya.

Actually Egypt is modernizing its armed forces..it hasn't been done for the last 25 years..
Turkey too is modernizing its armed forces.. It is a normal process and has nothing to do with EEZs or political misunderstandings. they both had enough strength to fight each other in the last decades if that was it..

I don't know about Turkey being "slightly" stronger.

The Egyptian army is fundamentally mismanaged and incompetent with generals more focused on politics and the economy rather than actual military pursuits. The engineering and logistics authorities are ironically more prepared for bulldozing defensive positions and replacing it with real estate developments for Turks to buy as opposed to sustaining combat operations against a NATO force.

The EAF despite some big ticket purchases lacks the support craft and has limited training in conventional air to air engagements, maybe Greece could help bolster this. Especially considering the backbone of the Egyptian Air Force is left naked in long range engagements by lacking a BVR capacity. Maybe they could put up a decent fight in the beginning with Rafales but long term, TAF capabilities would wear the EAF down.

I could only see the Egyptian Navy actually having a chance of putting Turkey on the backfoot with its purchases. With some excellent choices especially with the FREMM but ultimately if it's going head to head against the Turkish navy which actually can build and maintain its own domestic warships with capacities that aren't reliant on the goodwill of the EU, something that Egypt lacks is concerning.

Have you ever fought with Mig-21s against F-4 phantoms.. 1 and a half generation more advanced and downed them many times over?

That is a small example about the air-force..the same goes for the army, navy and the air-defense.. and against a much worst foe than Turkey.. US-rael itself..?

From Airforce to Navy they will come from 30 years back. Turkey is not country anymore who purchase weapons from x countries. But a exporter to other countries, owns a industry and can make his own systems. What Egypt did last 5 years is nice for them, but that will be headeacht by time. Fifthy procent of ther fighters will be grounded because of maitain isseu, you have fighters from 3 countries. On the other side, Turkey will design it weapons and not finance other countries industry the money stays in Turkey.

F16 will be ours last fighter purchase from Americans and ther last upgrade kit. Our own AESA radar will be installed on our F16 block 30 what will be block 70 level.

Egypt have leveled up ther navy for now, still not pair. That will change from next year. Fist I class with only Turkish sensor package and weapons will enter service, Egypt sensor package on ther ship is poor. First AIP sub will enter service untill 2027 every year one of them. After REIS class subs is finished we will begin with MILDEN 3000 ton sub project this will be after 2030. We will have 14 modern SUBS before 2030 and after MILDEN it will be light years comparing navy with Egypt. After I class we will have AAW frigatte with 8000 ton with 64 VLS pacakge, let them buy more if they have the money.

Aircraft carrier project, drone ship project, mini subs 500 ton project and the list goes on.

First , Turkey is not threat to Egypt

Secondly , Turkey becomes real global military power which spend $75 billion to develop 700+ military projects

Turkey would buy Egyptian+Greek+İsraeli militaries combined for $75 billion
Turkey will have game changer weapons ... Egypt buys old technologies

which war ?
Turkey doesnt attack on anyone

but if anyone attack on Turkey and Turkish national interests
then only Turkish Missiles will be enough to hit military targets in Egypt and Greece

Turkey has ROKETSAN , ASELSAN , TUBITAK-SAGE to develop/produce 1.000+ km Ballistic and Cruise Missiles
also all kinds of missiles from anti-ship to air launched cruise missile
from air to air missiles to air defense missiles
