The United States blocked the delivery of Scalp-EG missiles to Egypt

44
US blocks sale to Egypt by France aviation operational-tactical cruise missiles MBDA Scalp-EG, designed to arm the French Dassault Rafale fighters purchased by Egypt, reports bmpd with reference to the La Tribune.




This, in turn, hinders negotiations on the acquisition of 12 fighters themselves (in addition to the previously ordered 24), since Cairo links their purchase with the receipt of Scalp-EG missiles.

The fact is that "the United States refuses to grant the European MBDA association a license to export to Egypt one of the American-made components used in Scalp-EG missiles, which makes it impossible to deliver them to an Arab country," the newspaper writes. Americans motivate their actions by the restrictive regime of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) in the country.

As a result, the contract already prepared by the end of 2017 for the sale to Egypt of 12 of additional Rafale fighter jets has not yet been signed.

Bmpd comment: “Probably, the US’s opposition to selling Scalp-EG cruise missiles to Egypt is associated with a desire to prevent a threat to Israel. It can be assumed that the “American component” in Scalp-EG rockets is the receiver of a high-precision military GPS signal used in the guidance system of these rockets. ”

    ... The United States blocked the sale of Egypt's France tactical MBA Scalp-EG cruise missiles designed for arming Egypt's Dassault Rafale French fighters ...

    What did the French want?
    American business. We didn’t boil our way, we instructed competitors. Nothing personal...
    ... Probably, the US opposition to the sale of Scalp-EG cruise missiles to Egypt is connected with the desire to prevent a threat to Israel ...

    Baby talk. Inflicting indirect damage to allies has never deterred geldings from making a profit.

        The US is afraid that a couple of missiles will be in Russia.

          But do not mess with the United States. TOTALLY DO NOT CONTACT NATO.
          Even the French have proven that they are NATO, with the Ministries. You should never get involved with NATO on security and trade issues.
          It is possible - on a cultural exchange, but it is MANDATORY to write IN THE CONTRACT Astronomical fines for the non-return of works of art, otherwise, as soon as they receive something valuable, they will immediately come up with a “lawsuit” against which they will retain it.

    I won’t be surprised if Israel tries to sell it in exchange. laughing
    In general, to deal with the fascists is the same as with the swindlers, I think in Egypt they will draw conclusions ...

      This all suggests that France is an errand pug in the United States. The situation reminds me of an epic with the Mistals, when France lost face, money and technology, and Russia remained in the black.
      Here the same thing will be, they will find someone to buy rockets from.

      There KSA (Saudis) and Co. funded by the sun of the Egyptians. Therefore, Cairo is forced to support the KSA - in Yemen and a run over to Qatar. The French managed to push through the Russian Mistral Cairo and Rafali. Apparently the United States felt that this was too much already. It will be extremely difficult for Moscow to sell its aircraft to Egypt. hi

    The Royal Air Force first used the rocket in 2003 against the army of Saddam Hussein, France was able to use the rocket for the first time in combat only in 2011 against the regime of Muammar Gaddafi. In those days, in a sense, the SCALP rocket became a rocket against dictators. France tore off the cover during the war against the Caliphate, when rockets began to be used as sausages.


    It is known that several hundred SCALP-EG missiles were launched (France purchased 500 missiles, Great Britain - 900 Storm Shadow). A total of 3000 copies of the missile were ordered, and customers appreciated its reliability and ability to integrate onto various carriers without any special difficulties (the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter is close to this). This is a success for the weapons system of the joint Franco-British development of the mid-1990s.

      Lobbying the interests of its military industry in all its glory. Once the USSR was so skilled that not a single Warsaw treaty country and their satellites even looked towards Western weapons. Only the USSR is no longer there, Russia does not have enough influence on this, but the USA has remained and can. What is the problem?
