Algeria is no worried about the quality of equipments received from Russia or China or any other country she bought weaponry from…From the time being , none of her 7 borders have been violated. Algeria is the Israel of Russia..the only country that the Russian arm with systems that are not made for export…the 1st Egyptian Rafale deal was F3 varian that is not able to fire Meteor missile ( wasn’t in service that time ) but the deal included upgrading the 1st batch to be F3R and obtaining meteor missiles .
Egypt has a contract to aquire 12 RAFALEs with the same price of the first 24 .... may be that is the reason + more production equals low price .
also consider the only Arab country ( Algeria ) that had downgraded & malfunctioned Sukhois from Russia ....! in a huge corruption deal with Algerian generals
Egyptian Rafales are no better than the F16 that the US damped on Egypt, Iraq and other Arab states, save the Emirates ( but under a full US control) and serve as a US stock in case of war with Russian or the Chinese…Beside the voice of Israel has been silent on the latest Egyptian’s acquisitions be it, from France, Italy, Germany or others..it indicates that all these 2nd hand toiletteries are of no danger to them…And I doubt seriously that the Russians have sold you anything worth having…And thinking that the Russian bear has forgotten, what Sadat did to them in the 80’s…you will be sadly mistaken…
Algeria, comparing to Egypt has a small army..She buy the best what is sold in this world and used to the fullest of its capabily..So far, beside Russia, it is the only country south of the Med , save Israel, that her drones , smart ammunitions and missiles weight land based, propelled , air or sea based are satellite vectored using her own satellite…..Algeria’s armed forces are a way ahead from any army or armies that the Arab world can put together…if Egyptian armed forces haven’t crossed the Lybian borders despite the many Sissi threats, there is big reason….
