Egyptian mig 35 fighter jet with a naval camouflage
Maybe after a while of usage that stuff starts seeping out and finding its way onto the fuselage, but right after a fresh paint job and on its first few test flights? I really like this aircraft but in light of the issues India had with their K's, it's a bit concerning to see something like that on supposedly the most advanced version of the MiG-29 series to date.
Egypt receives first single-seat Rafales
Egypt has received the first of eight single-seat Dassault Rafale C multirole combat aircraft, the country’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 26 July.
Two aircraft making up the fourth installment of Rafale deliveries (the previous three installments being made up of twin-seat Rafale B platforms) arrived in-country seemingly on the same day as the announcement that was made via the MoD’s official Twitter account.
With these latest arrivals, the Egyptian Air Force (EAF) has received into service 11 of the 24 Rafales that it ordered from France in February 2015. By the time deliveries are complete, the EAF will field 16 Rafale B two-seat and eight Rafale C single-seat aircraft.

J-7 also getting old and with increased threat/ move of Isis they might seek to bolster forces. I always found the Egyptian armed forces as a whole a complete jigsaw puzzle it must be a nightmare

Heir to the throne of Saudi Arabia arrived with a three-day visit to Egypt. This is the first trip abroad of the son of the king after taking his current post.
