    Egyptian Special Forces Interested in Russian Intelligence Systems

    Egypt’s special forces are keen to acquire the Russian intelligence system Strelets, the press service of Russia’s Central Military District said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – An Egyptian military delegation attended a counter-terrorism training session for the district’s troops, which involved 1,200 soldiers and 400 units of military hardware.

    "We watched the Strelets intelligence system in operation… We liked the system, and we would like to have it at our forces' disposal," the head of the Egyptian delegation said.

    "Egypt confirms plans to buy Russian «Tigr» light armoured vehicle.

    The delegation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Egypt expressed their interest in purchasing the latest version of Russian armored police car SBM VPK-233136 “Tiger”; This week the Ministry of Interior delegation got acquainted with the possibilities of the machine in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. The GAZ Tigr is a Russian 4×4, multipurpose, all-terrain infantry mobility vehicle manufactured by GAZ, first delivered to the Russian Army in 2006. Primarily used by the Russian Federation’s armed forces, it is also used by numerous other countries and organizations.



    The vehicles are deployed by the rapid-reaction teams and special forces for conducting escort missions, patrols and counter-terrorist operations. The main differences of SBM VPK-233136 from basic variant GAZ Tigr: improved armor, no NBC protection system, embrasures in the windows, side windows couldn’t be opened, two hatches on the roof, tow rope on the roof, no oil tanks on the back, improved brakes system.

    The Russian military reporter Vitaly Kuzmin made pictures outside and inside a special armored vehicle SBM VPK-233136 used by OSN Saturn special unit."
