    Recall that the contract to supply Egypt with more than 50 fighters MiG-29M / M2 was signed by Rosoboronexport in May 2015. The first aircraft under this contract were manufactured at the Production Complex No. 1 of RAC MiG in Lukhovitsy in early 2017. Although the first batch of cars has already been transferred to the Egyptian Air Force, in fact, their delivery to Egypt, according to known data, has not yet begun.

    Was there or will it be any parade this year to commemorate the October war? I was hoping all the new stuff (S-300VM, Ka-52, MiG-35 etc.) was or will be shown.

Earlier, Egypt's plans envisaged the release of 1,300-1,500 M1A1 tanks, but at present the prospects for continuing the assembly of these tanks at the plant number 200 do not look quite definite, but, apparently, will continue.
