    Lots of Vitaly photos at link

    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.

    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).

    There are versions of President for helos and for fixed wing aircraft... some can be added on, and some are built in. MiG-35 has it built in... older MiGs can have the add on, or be upgraded with the built in version. Su-35 also has a built in system, just like PAK FA does too... the latter is called Himalaya.

    Egypt To Receive Advanced Fulcrum Fighters from MiG
    by Vladimir Karnozov - June 7, 2016, 8:31 AM

    Here: http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/defense/2016-06-07/egypt-receive-advanced-fulcrum-fighters-mig

    An initial batch of Advanced Fulcrum lightweight multirole fighters for Egypt is in production at the Russian Aircraft Corporation “MiG” (RAC MiG), according to industry sources. The number on order and the exact type of aircraft is not yet known. A couple of aircraft are to be ready for flight tests by the year-end. Russian media reports have given a contract value of $2 billion.

    Neither Moscow nor Cairo have revealed the status of the deal. This is mainly due to its complex nature, arranged by Egypt and Saudi Arabia with the latter granting funds under government-to-government agreements of a secret nature. Some details may emerge during the long expected—and repeatedly delayed—official visit of the Saudi monarch to Moscow. The kingdom is looking to improve its relations with Russia, using big arms purchases in political tradeoffs.


    The aircraft could be MiG-29M/M2s or MiG-35s. Basically, these represent the same aircraft with minor technical differences. The designation “MiG-35” has been introduced largely for marketing reasons. RAC MiG is desperate to secure the Egyptian order; without it, production of the Advanced Fulcrum series may close down soon.

    In 2011-2013, RAC MiG produced three prototypes of land-based Advanced Fulcrums. These are being employed on flight tests and as demonstrator aircraft. The Russian air force says it has an interest in the MiG-35, but this interest is yet to materialize as a firm order. The service made it clear that it will not place a contract earlier than in 2017, and only on the condition that the manufacturer meets its requirements for a future lightweight multirole fighter.

    This year RAC MiG is supposed to deliver the last six MiG-29K/KUB carrier-capable Advanced Fulcrum fighters to India, from the 2010 order for 29 such aircraft. This will bring the Indian Navy fleet to 45. The manufacturer has already fulfilled the Russian MoD order for 20 MiG-29K and four MiG-29KUB deck fighters awarded in 2012. These aircraft are operated by the newly established independent fighter regiment of the Russian navy naval aviation headquartered at Yeisk airbase on the Russian Black Sea coast. This airbase is a large center for the combat training of naval pilots in operations from aircraft carriers using shore-based facilities equipped with arrestor wires and sky-jumps.

    RAC MiG is still fulfilling a Russian air force order for for 16 MiG-29SMT/UBT classic Fulcrum aircraft. It came in 2014 and followed the 2009 contract for 34 such machines that are now in service. RAC MiG delivered four MiG-29SMT and two MiG-29UBT aircraft in 2015, and two more in early 2016. It has to deliver the remaining eight later this year. These are believed to be the very last classic Fulcrums to be built.

    Dear god... the F-16A and F-16 block 52 are basically the same aircraft with minor technical differences...

    The MiG-29M2 is an all digital fighter bomber, whose airframe is shared by the MiG-29K and MiG-35.

    The MiG-35 is a 5- level jet with pretty much everything improved over the MiG-29M2, using avionics that are comparable with the Su-35 and in some areas superior to.

    Its distributed optical sensor system is superior to that fitted to the Super Flanker... and was developed by a company that creates laser communications systems for satellites.

    From this twitter page (graphic content warning!*), the following is claimed:
    By the end 2016 Egypt will receive the last batch of the S-300VM order - so they received the S-300VM after all? How come nothing was made public, i was expecting images of them in EADF service since last year.
    In 2017 Egypt is set to receive 6 MiG-35 and 6 Ka-52.

    *i have never understood the grotesque fascination in ME to post images or dead/mutilated/eviscerated/charred people, even if the posters in question are not alligned (as far as i know) with jihadist scum like IS and other similar  filth.

    Thought that they already had 46 or so on order. Maybe this is pressure to get more than the expected 6 next year.

    To a Tee: Russia to Fulfill MiG-29 Delivery Contract to Egypt on Schedule

    Moscow will deliver MiG-29 fighters to Egypt on schedule, a Russian military cooperation official said.

    ABU DHABI (Sputnik) — Russia's contract on the delivery of MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Egypt is on pace with its schedule, Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Deputy Director Alexei Frolkin said Monday.

    "The delivery will be carried out within the period set out in the contract," Frolkin told reporters at the IDEX 2017 exhibition in the United Arab Emirates.

    The contract, reportedly initiated after Russian President Vladimir Putin's meeting with Egyptian leadership in February 2014, would be the largest order for the MiG-29 jets in the post-Soviet period.

    The contract on the delivery of some 50 MiG-29 Fulcrum multirole fighters reportedly sets the 2020 completion deadline.

    MiG-29M2 fighter in the color of the Air Force of Egypt

    As reported by the Algerian resource "MenaDefense" in the material "Exclusive! First picture of an egyptian MiG-29/35, on March 31, the first sample of a MiG-29M2 fighter (number 811) was built, commissioned by Egypt. The photo was taken on the territory of the Flight Research Institute. M. M. Gromov in Zhukovsky. It is assumed that the first aircraft will be handed over to the customer in the second quarter of 2017.



    On the bmpd side, we note that for the first time in the open sources that the 46 MiG-29M/M2 fighters were agreed to Egypt, Alexei Nikolskyi said in an article in May 2015, "Egypt will load the Russians with work." A contract has been agreed to supply 46 MiG-29 fighters to Egypt. He opens new perspectives to one of the most famous Russian companies in the world "in the Vedomosti newspaper.

    As reported by RIA Novosti on February 5, 2016, Rosoboronexport in April 2015 concluded a contract with one of the countries of North Africa [Egypt-bmpd] for the delivery of more than 50 MiG-29M/M2 fighters of new construction, two aircraft must be shipped as early as the end of 2016. This was stated by Aleksey Beskibalov, Deputy Director General of the Russian Aircraft Building Corporation MiG, who arrived in Nizhny Novgorod to take part in the celebrations marking the 84th anniversary of the formation of the Nizhny Novgorod Sokol aircraft plant (which was part of the MiG-based Rocket and Space Corps).

    A good analyse of Egypt capabilities with the new Migs, first one that is not biased and without stupid propaganda.
