    Because ofc if Egypt doesn't order MiG-29s, it means then US still has a strong grip on the country - it's the only possible explanation.

    Well, let say I was a leader of a country. And in said country, I made a decision that warranted for other powers whom I usually purchased goods from, try to find a method to dispose of me or cause some sort of harm to my security capabilities and economy. Then, all of a sudden, because some other country tries to get closer to me, I all of a sudden get access to be able to purchase these goods again. What do you think I would do? I would seek out alternatives. Regardless if it is Russian or Chinese or whatever. I wouldn't go back to purchasing the same as before. I would seek out alternatives and ways to secure my countries security without this happening again; localize production of parts and what not.

    That said, you are right. Doesn't mean that the US ends up with a strong grip over it. But at the same token, doesn't make much sense to me neither. Unless those F-16's were a darn good deal.

    If true, good news. I imagine with Mistral deal, Ka-52K will end up in Egypt as well.

    Nice  thumbsup  ... and the MiG-35 story is active again

    Egypt steps up interest in MiG-35 deal with Russia

    Egypt's interest in acquiring the RAC MiG-35 has developed into negotiations with Russia to purchase 46 fighters in a deal which could be worth up to $2.2 billion.

    According to Russian media reports, RAC MiG chief executive Sergei Korotkov says the company is ready to supply MiG-35s to Cairo. The model is the Russian air force's latest-generation fighter, and is a successor to earlier versions of the MiG-29 series.

    What is happening withe the S-300VMs anyway, the first ones were finished a few months ago (if indeed they were destined for Egypt) surely they should have arrived by now?

    Anyway, today's news are Egypt will apparently buy the two Mistrals (delivery in March next year), presumably the 50 Ka-52 should mostly be earmarked to equip them.

    Mate, Don't forget we're talking about Egypt here (let me refresh your mind with the Buk1/2 and Tor1/2), if you're waiting for images then it's not going to be any time soon neither concrete official announcements regarding this unless probably Russia does it first and deals with it as the French do! All the late French Hardware were officially announced from the French side first. As for the French Rafales and their appearances when delivered, I believe that it held some kind of political messages also with foreign aspects regarding the remaining f-16 block 52 held back by the US. Anyway did the S300 appear in any other country? If no then be assured it's likely in Egypt Very Happy

    We knew about the 50 Ka52 some time ago and way before the Misterals so most likely non of these 50 are the naval kind thus not for the Misterals although I'm confident that naval Ka52-k will be on top of the 2 LHD Ships, most likely another deal to be signed in the near future unless Egypt and Russia come to terms about editing the contract that already have been "signed" taking into consideration that the 50 helos will take some time for production (not impossible but quite unlikely)!

    Russia to Hold Talks With Egypt on Sales of Equipment for Mistrals

    Russia to hold talks with Egypt on the possible purchase by Cairo of the Russian equipment for the Mistral helicopter carriers.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia will hold talks with Egypt on the possible purchase by Cairo of the Russian equipment for the Mistral helicopter carriers on October 21-23, a source in the military-technical cooperation sphere said Saturday.

    "Today a deal is out of the question. There is a discussion going on of what the Egyptian side could be interested in, what we could offer them and what we could supply them with. Breakthrough should not be expected," the source told RIA Novosti.

    Cairo and Paris signed a contract earlier this month for the purchase of two French-made Mistral-class helicopter carriers originally built for Russia.

    The source told the media outlet earlier that the Russian specialists would remain in France until November to uninstall the equipment from the ships, while Egypt was interested in it.

    Egypt emerged as France’s replacement customer for the Mistrals in September 2015, after Paris and Moscow formally terminated a 2011 deal on the construction and delivery of the two ships. In November 2014, France suspended the contract, claiming Moscow's alleged participation in the Ukrainian conflict.

    Russia and France are expected to sign the final documents on the removal of radio-electronic systems from the Mistral-class helicopter carriers in early November.

    Russia, Egypt Discuss Antey-2500, Buk Missile Systems Delivery

    Rostec head Sergey Chemezov said that Russia is holding talks with Egypt on the delivery of Antey-2500 anti-ballistic missile system and Buk surface-to-air missile system

    DUBAI (Sputnik) – Russia is holding talks with Egypt on the delivery of Antey-2500 anti-ballistic missile system and Buk surface-to-air missile system, Russia’s state technologies corporation Rostec head Sergey Chemezov said Sunday.

    “Today we are considering a possibility of delivering to Egypt missile systems Antey-2500 and Buk, negotiations continue,” Chemezov said during the Dubai Airshow.

    Russia’s state arms exporter Rosoboronexport will supply to foreign countries arms worth at least $12.5 billion until the end of the year, Russia’s state technologies corporation Rostec head said.

    "Rosoboronexport should reach $12.5 billion. We hope, it will be a little more. But we will definitely fulfill the plan," Chemezov said during the Dubai Airshow.

    I am all baffled now. I thought Egypt already ordered Antey-2500 and the desert cammo ones we saw in summer are meant for it! So still no contract yet, let alone deliveries!?

    However, now we have this piece of news, which says Egypt should receive 40 targeting pods for MiG-35 from 2016. So  a contract for about 40 MiG-35 already signed?
    http://www.aex.ru/news/2015/11/9/144717/

    Finally, not specifically about exports, but this article says that new OLS systems for MiG-35 and Su-35 should be delivered from 2017. I can only guess that it can possibly be interpreted as new OLS for VKS's future MiG-35S and Su-35S, rather than having to do with export MiG-35, which might use the older OLS?

    Looks like the Egyptian Navy will have some helicopters for the Mistrals as the rumours turn into an order.

    Egypt is to acquire 46 navalised Kamov Ka-52K attack helicopters to equip its new French-built Mistral-class amphibious assault ships.

    According to Kamov parent Russian Helicopters, the deal with Cairo has been signed via Russia’s Rosoboronexport arms export agency.

    Writing in the latest issue of its corporate magazine, Russian Helicopters chief executive Alexander Mikheev says despite the “challenging environment” for overseas sales, it was still able to bring in new business.

    Good for Kamov and for Egypt, Russia didn't really needed Mistrals - it wasn't something Russian shipbuilding corporation couldn't design and lay down on it's own. Russia got it's mistral deal money back, contracts with Egypt on helicopters and keep deepening it's ties with Cairo.
    Win-win situation.

    This is good news for Egypt as the MiG-29M and MiG-29M2 are very good aircraft underrated in the west.

    With President S they will be even better.

    Btw Garry, President-S must be for the Ka-52, don't remember reading anything about the MiG-35 having such a system (a DIRCM).
