      The contract was on the MiG-29M2. According to some sources 46, about 50 about cheerful ones. And I didn’t meet anything with “Indian” options

    The question is, but on MIG-21 you can add SVP-24. what is our order for modernization of defense industry instant, and it’s cheaper for the Egyptians to bombard the barmalei from the instant than from the rafals

    Something like they wrote that the sponsor of the purchase is Saudi Arabia and / or the UAE, which are against Shiite terror and the Shiite axis led by Iran to settle in Lebanon and Syria and against Hamas terrorists, who, although not Shiites, are in touch with terrorists Hezbollah committed terrorist attacks against Egypt and help the Ishilas between the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula against Egypt.

    Russia along with Iran and Hezbollah terrorists on the same axis.
    The USA then just after the coup seemed to have reduced aid to Egypt trying to put pressure on it and the order went to France.
    Of course, Egypt will also buy from Russia, but the sponsor decides and he knows best. And if Russia makes a discount or pays for it, then in general in Egypt they will rejoice ..

      This is only on the Israeli forums write. Israel, USA, Saudi Arabia, ISIS + so-called "An international coalition led by the United States" is until recently all one single axis that has been flailing Assad, hybrid fighting Nusra and ISIS against him. Russia, Iran, Hezbollah is a coalition opposing ISIS terrorists and the terrorists who supported ISIS, including Israel. the Saudis broke away from this company of international lessons. Israel and the United States remained in the company of international lessons, ISIS accomplices. Others Russia and Iran have calmed down. Smoke wonderful grass finish, take care of a delicate brain.
