Egypt received X-31 medium-range air-to-surface missiles


This was the conclusion of the authors of Jane's Defense Weekly, studying photographs taken by the press service of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi during a visit aviation the base where he arrived to familiarize himself with the received Russian equipment. The authors of the material were unable to determine the type of X-31 missiles delivered from the photographs: this is either the X-31PD anti-radar missile (air-radar, launch range up to 250 km), or the X-31AD anti-ship missile (air-to-surface, launch range up to 160 km).

Information that one of the North African countries wants to conclude a contract for the purchase of MiG-29М / М2 fighter jets appeared in the 2015 year. And in August of the same year, it became known that Egypt, as part of a package agreement, with an estimated value of 3,5 billion dollars, will receive more than 2020 MiG-50М / М29 fighter jets before 2. Later, Rosoboronexport reported that the Egyptian Air Force would receive 46 single MiG-29M and six two-seater MiG-29М2. The delivery of MiG machines began in April 2017. Together with the fighters, the weapons envisaged by the design are also coming.

    There is no doubt that Israel remains the main adversary for Egypt. And in this sense, the acquisition of these missiles for aviation strengthens the potential of the Egyptian Air Force.

        And immediately the possibility of using X-31A / P missiles appeared soldier
        All "foreigners" also received this "lotion" in their N019E (N019ME) bully

        Yuryevich, you shouldn't be sneering))) Israel, though the navel of the earth, but besides it, Egypt has someone to defend against, the same Europe (remember Libya and M. Gaddafi, "friend of Gayrope" Sarkozy, how he wrote off his huge debt?))))

      Not only Israel. Do not forget about the Arab Spring, organized by the United States. The Egyptian military quickly figured out the situation and took control of the country, not allowing somalization, as in Libya and Syria. It is pleasing that the Egyptian leadership renewed military-technical cooperation with the Russian Federation (MIGs, Ka-52 for the Mistrals, joint exercises, etc.). Egypt controls the most important artery - the Suez Canal.

        Ethiopia is quietly completing a dam for a giant hydroelectric power station that will block the Nile.
        And it may leave Egypt without water and electricity (the Aswan hydroelectric station will not have enough water).
        And Ethiopia wants to supply electricity to a whole group of countries in central Africa and Sudan.
        Ethiopia has good military forces.

          Ethiopia has good military forces.

          Compared to the Army of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Ethiopia with the Armed Forces has "utter gloomy gloom." No.
          But the main thing is not that. Between them are two countries - Sudan and South Sudan. "Do not touch" (c)

              With a minimum distance in an absolute straight line from border to border of 2466 km ??
              For Gomhouria, a bit much! laughing
              Seriously, neither APE nor Ethiopia has combat vehicles with such a tactical radius.

                I don’t know how they will deal with this dam. Once there were negotiations, but did not end there. Ethiopians did not stop the construction. But this is a serious matter ... When the Turks blocked the Efrat Dam, in Syria ordinary droughts turned into catastrophic ones. The peasants, having gone broke, rushed into the cities - unemployment, Islamization ... And 7 years of civil war.
                We do not need the ruin of Egypt.

                  I also do not know how they will figure it out, but Egypt currently does not have its own military levers to influence Ethiopia.

      Who does not doubt it? Now it seems that they and their money partners with Israel have peace-friendship-chewing gum.

      I still think that the Muslim Brotherhood is the main enemy for the Egyptian leadership.

      It's already worth it, it's not in vain that Putin drove it in Valdai in a "presidential car" ..))))
      In turn, gentlemen, money in advance and not only ... Russia needs a powerful coalition in the fight against the impudent USA and Israel! It's time to end this hegemony and "sweet couple" in world politics ..
