    I would think a purchase from Russia... perhaps a Kilo class sub or something might be a token purchase to just say that we are no longer under Americas thumb and are interested in diversifying our weapon sources.

    It might be the only Russian thing they ever buy, they might end up buying from Europe, but the point is to make it clear to the US they are not dependent on them, that they have their own voice.

    They might not buy anything at all from Russia... they might buy from China, but the message is the same.

    Just looking at what they have on Wiki I would say buying 100 Mig-29SMT aircraft to replace the F-4s, the Mig-21s, and the Mirage Vs, and of course an upgrade of the Mirage 2000s and the F-16s upgraded too would be a good relatively cheap way to improve their existing force. Perhaps their J-7s replaced with JF-17s as the cheap numbers fighter.

    They could buy Yak-130 jet trainers to replace their Alpha jets, or perhaps Mig AT trainers if they want.

    If the US doesn't want them to have upgraded F-16s there is the threat of purchasing Su-35s.

    The Russians make a range of mini subs including the Piranha class vessels right up to full sized vessels.

    Patrol boats would make more sense in the canal for patrol duties, but for the Med and the persian gulf normal sized conventional sub designs would be fine.

    Also there where Pechora-2M shopping even earlier.

    Eygpt still likes Russian air-defense that has proved itself during its war with Israel.

    As S-300 is no longer in production they will have to stand in line with S-400.

    On the other hand two more Almaz-Antej factories will speed up the thing.

    Media: The source of military aid to Egypt instead of the U.S. is Russia


    Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt, Nabil Fahmy said earlier that the relationship with the United States "have entered a period of problems and difficulties," and that Egypt forced "to look for other sources of" weapons and military aid. According to Israeli TV, "other" refers to Russia, with which Egypt intends to sign a big deal to buy the weapons transfers MIGnews.
    As expected.

    This would be huuuuge if true. 

    Egypt Turning from US to Russia for Military Aid

    With the return of the delegation from Moscow, Egypt expressed intentions to buy MiG-29 planes and other military equipment from Russia in a 15 billion dollar deal. Some reports indicate Saudi Arabia - which is itself experiencing something of a crisis in its relations with the Obama administration - will help finance the deal.

    Russian 'military aid' to Egypt?
    Uh yeah no thanks, we have enough of our own obligations

    Certainly a low-interest loan or 2 can be in order though.

    And the Saudis financing Egypt's purchases of Russian arms? I would have thought that they are still butt-hurt with Russia over Syria and Iran.

    Saudi Arabia just recently gave 15 bin $ to Egypt because they eliminated MB. They dont want to see Egypt or Syria or anyone else for that matter fall under influence of MB because 

    they think they could be next. Thats why they are financing Al Nusra front and ISIS and all other extremist groups in Syria that are besides Syrian Army fighting FSA as well. They want to 

    prevail and by doing so stop expansion of MB.
