    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.
    Indeed, buying influence on USSR levels is not something Russia should be emulating.

    They have lost the support of an ally... they need to decide what group of new friends they want and what sort of military equipment needs to be bought.

    Buying weapons is an ongoing thing for most countries and is perfectly normal.

    No ,russia or any other country will not give a military aid to egypt except US because of something simple , US has the money and the reason to pay
    US aid to egypt is a part of camp david agreement between Egypt and Israel 1978 , so US could decrease the aid as she did but will not cut it all , US don't want that and Egypt don't want that , Egypt has a military relations with russia but Cairo will increase that relation to make a balance in the region here but we will not be another Iran ,not our style ,

    As i said there is no Russian aid to Egypt and Egypt will not establish any foreign military bases over it's land .

    You could be right , but the military deal with Russia is more political deal than a military one ,Egypt could take some weapons that she didn't need urgently but we will take it because of politics .

    US military aid was selective as Egypt could not choose weapons it needed but the ones selected by the US. Now without any Russian restrictions Egypt will be able to fill its magazines 

    with the weapons it wants and needs.

    Not true , Egypt is the one that demand it's own weapons , if US refused to give us a weapon ,it's simple we get it from another country .

    Russian cruiser “Varyag” arrives at the Egyptian port of Alexandria

    On Monday, flagship of the Russian Pacific Fleet, the missile cruiser “Varyag”, for the first time in the modern history of the fleet, arrived on an unofficial visit to the Egyptian port of Alexandria.

    During the six-day visit, Russian sailors will visit Egyptian Navy warships and take part in football sports competitions with their counterparts from the Egyptian Navy. The informal visit of the missile cruiser “Varyag” will continue until 16th November and will conclude with a service by the Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, Theodoros II on board of the flagship, as well as with a visit to the ship by representatives of the Russian colony in the Egyptian city. After concluding this visit, the cruiser will continue to perform its duties in the Mediterranean Sea.

    Egypt seeks to bring friendship with Russia to ‘Soviet level’

    Well, that was unambiguous.

    Info by SaidPVO regarding post-USSR Russian SAM deliveries to Egypt.

    -In 1998-2000, S-75M3 was sold, along with Kvadrat missiles, Oborona-14 radar stations and modernized P-18 radars.
    -In 2000-2003 timeframe, 50 S-125 complexes were modernized to Pechora levels; the deal was for 150 million dollars.
    -In 2005, Rosboronexport sold 4 Tor-M1s, and a small batch of Buk-M1-2 (probably actually Kvadrat modernized with 9M317E), Shilka and Igla.
    -In 2007 a contract was signed for deliveries of ZSU-23-4-M4 Shilka-Strelets.

    Would be very interesting to find out what type of SAMs. Perhaps the other parts of the deal, especially MiG-35s, will move forward too once finances are solved.

    I doubt that Egyptian army has a financial problems , while i'm writing this reply , the Egyptian army is financing a civil projects in Egypt with 1.5 B$ and a year ago the army Put 1B$ in the state treasury as a help , the talking about financial problems is a cover for something may be it's all about US Deception Very Happy

     " Today signed a contract for the supply of military vehicles with one of the African countries, and has already begun training of foreign specialists combat use and the operating rules of combat hardware."

    I think this African country is no other than Egypt as Tor is in service already and there has been talk about Egypt signing contract with Russia about air-defense.
