Egypt will equip MiGs with concrete bombs for the possible demolition of the Ethiopian Dam

102
The recent failure of the negotiations surrounding the Ethiopian Great Dam of Renaissance has led Egypt to take steps to strengthen its military power. aviation. It is supposed to be used to strike at the specified object with a view to its destruction. According to Cairo, the commissioning of the dam can cause permanent damage to the country's water balance.




According to Defense Arabic, the Egyptian Air Force has acquired new ammunition that can cope with highly fortified structures, such as a massive dam made of reinforced concrete. We are talking about a modular aviation weapon AASM (Armement Air-Sol Modulaire) SBU-64 Hammer - a bomb with an infrared / laser homing head (GOS) operating on the final section of the flight path.

A few months ago, Egypt received at least 50 Storm Shadow / SCALP cruise missiles manufactured by the European company MBDA. They are intended for Rafal fighters. Special, concrete-piercing, versions of AASM model air bombs will be equipped with MiG aircraft for the possible demolition of the Ethiopian dam (in the absence of agreements).

AASMs produced by France were used in real battles at foreign theaters of operations, including to defeat distant targets. With the help of these bombs, demolition of buildings of strategic importance was carried out.

      Well, this bonfire is not given to us to understand ...
      There are many places in the world where water defines life.
      The Nile spills (although nowadays, it seems like the level is regulated) were key for the crop / crop failure.
      Ethiopians in the upper Nile are building a reservoir, and until it is full, the Egyptians have water problems.
      Well and further it is a powerful lever of pressure on Egypt.
      So, there is something to twitch about ...

          Hidase Hydroelectric Power Station (Amh. Ā, Hidāsē, Renaissance) is a large hydropower plant under construction with installed capacity of 6.45 GW in the Benishangul-Gumuz region of Ethiopia near the border with Sudan, located on the Blue Nile River, the right tributary of the Nile River.
          The reservoir filling start is planned for 2019 year, after commissioning in 2020 year [3] will become the most powerful hydroelectric power station on the territory of the African continent.

              And how many percent of the flow does this influx give?

                It depends on how many Ethiopians will be taken from it. The dam itself will reduce the flow only temporarily for the filling period.

                PS
                Block Ethiopia river on 100% it will be a whitewash, and so Egypt has no legal reasons to show off.

                How many percent will the Nile drain in Egypt decrease?

                Currently, the Egyptians have more than 100 million people. that is, about 104 in my opinion. The population threshold at which everyone has enough water has already been crossed. In part, Egypt will save the fact that about 10 million Egyptians roam abroad and live there.
                Filling the dam will reduce the water supply in Egypt (I can be wrong) in my opinion by 30 percent. After filling the dam, the deficit will be 20 percent. (Now I won’t restore the numbers, sorry).
                So both filling and construction pose a real danger to Egypt, a country where the entire population lives on 4% of the territory along the river. two percent of the territory along and two in the delta.
                If you destroy this dam after filling, then the question will not be about the existence of Egypt, but only about the height of the wave that will wash off the coastal part of Egypt. In my opinion, Sudan will get it.
                There is a problem and how to solve it ... A BIG question.
                Bombs, of course, cool .... But now. Then - it will be late from the word at all.

      The long-promised war for water may begin. If the flow of the Nile in Egypt is significantly reduced due to the introduction of the dam, the 70 millionth population will experience an acute shortage of water, the rural population will rush into cities and pose a threat of civil war. Syria is going through it right now. It all began the same way when the Turks built a dam on their territory and limited the flow of Euphrates. The Alawite urban population did not get along with the Sunni rural population. With the Chinese, this is yet to come. I hope it will be possible to resolve without extreme measures.

    This is interesting. Now, if the Ethiopians drag a barge with explosives to Aswan’s cascades, drown it and blow it up, then it will be hurt. The Nile will return to its natural parameters, Egypt will become an exporter of grain, and fishing will increase in the Mediterranean.

        If Aswan is blown up, then hundreds of thousands of people and their houses will be washed away by water. As happened in 1941 after the explosion of the Dnieper hydroelectric dam by Soviet troops. But these are the problems of the Ethiopians and Arabs, not mine.

                        I treat the Ukrainians who died at the hands of Bandera scum with great sympathy. To the Americans who were dying in Vietnam, Korea, Iraq, the attitude is ambiguous. Thousands of miles from their homeland, they killed people who did not threaten them with anything. Ordinary soldiers on conscription are not to blame. The ghouls who commanded them should burn in hell. Although you do not care. No?

                        And what about the Ukrainians who defended (and are defending) their Motherland in Sands, Shirokino, Avdiivka, Donetsk airport? You can consider them Bandera ghouls, but on their Ukrainian soil (many of them are also natives of Donbass), under the flag of their country, in full accordance with this oath (and they do not break the oath, right?) They defend their country and from your like the St. Petersburg Natsik Raevsky and from the native of the Komi ASSR Pavlov. From the lover of cutting off the heads of puppies and the ears of the dead Ukrainian soldiers Milchakov, from the former (former) FSB officer Girkin, in general from the "north wind", as you call it. I repeat, on my own land, under my flag, with my oath.
                        By the way, what about the Soviet "volunteers" in Syria, Egypt, Mozambique, Angola, Nicaragua, who killed people who did not threaten them? Or to the volunteers (actually volunteers here) who participated in the blockade of Sarajevo?

                        From your postulate, it can be concluded that the formation of the state of Israel is criminal and that the persecution of Jews in Germany is lawful until September 1, 1939. Why is the Donetsk and Lugansk republics worse than Israel? Probably in Israel it is not customary to condemn Mordovai Anilevich, how do you condemn Girkin, Raevsky, Pavlov, Milchakov on Military Review? Why do you condemn the inhabitants of Crimea who left the country they hate and do not condemn their fellow tribesmen who escaped from the German concentration camps they hate?

                        The state of Israel was created to protect a people who did not have their own state. Mordechai Anilevich was never in Israel (because he was arrested by the Soviet authorities and deported to part of Poland occupied by the Germans), and died in 1943 during the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto.
                        No need to talk about things that you simply don’t know.
                        And going back to the beginning. Our highly moral, if anyone hates the Ukrainians who defend their land, or the Americans who do the same as the Soviet military did around the world (they kill people who do not threaten them in any way), then do not be surprised that I do not feel sorry for people with whom I have no connection.

                        And I mean that Anilevich is a completely different story than Dremov, Bezler and other Givi. And your war with the Ukrainians is also a completely different matter.
                        In addition, Mordechai Anilevich personality in Israel is quite well-known, but with all due respect does not pull on the title of national hero. We don’t have such a concept at all, well, maybe only in relation to David, Shimshon and other heroes of old.

In Donbass, not only Nazi parties were allowed, so that children were allowed to learn in their native language, so that the Kolomoisky pogroms, soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and SBUshniki did not kill or rape people .. In my opinion, there was even more reason to raise a rebellion in Donbass than in America in the 18th century.

                        For the entire Arab-Israeli conflict, about 60 Arabs died in 71 years (according to the most tense estimates on the globe), and the vast majority were soldiers of the Arab armies and members of terrorist organizations. I don’t know how many Chechens died during the two Chechen wars, but in the war I mentioned in Yemen from 1962 to 1970, about 200 thousand people died, the vast majority being civilians.

    A few months ago, Egypt received at least 50 Storm Shadow / SCALP cruise missiles manufactured by the European company MBDA. They are intended for fighters "Rafal". The MiG aircraft will be equipped with special, concrete-piercing, versions of aerial bombs for the possible demolition of the Ethiopian dam (in the absence of agreements).

    Egypt received almost all 24 Rafale fighters under a 2015 contract worth almost 2,5 billion euros between July 2015 and December 2018 and at the beginning of February 2019, the last aircraft was tested.

        2. The penetrating power of a concrete bomb is measured in a few meters. For a dam with a height of 140 m, these are scratches.

    According to Cairo, the commissioning of the dam can cause irreparable damage to the country's water balance.

    Radically, however.
    On this occasion, how are things with the Mongolian dams, Amur and Baikal? Will you have to bomb in incident too?

      Mongolian dams, Amur and Baikal?

      Dams in Mongolia and China slow down water flow. That is, more water evaporates and once again falls in the form of rain. Vapors lower the temperature and increase the humidity, that is, precipitation begins to fall at night in the form of dew. That is, the climate will become less arid. In the long term, the dam in Ethiopia will slow down the desertification of Africa from Egypt to Ethiopia. Also, Chinese dams will slow down the desertification of Transbaikalia. By coordinating spillway can reduce flood damage.

          I think that any attempt by the Mongols to reduce the desertification of their country reduces the generation of electricity in Russia and the income of the owners of the aluminum business. In addition, climate change is possible in the next hundred years will make Baikal without the Mongols with the Chinese closed reservoir. Forty years ago, I was wearing rubber boots crossing a wetland, sometimes pouring water over the tops of my boots. Now from May to November you can go everywhere without getting your shoes dirty.,

            Yeah. Well, you know better, I see ...
            And by the way, the decline in electricity production in Russia, not to mention the income of the owners of the aluminum business, is a very serious reason for the boom.

      Then they need to hurry, and then until they buy from the dam there will be nothing left.

    hmm, the mess is inevitable there, they cannot agree, their contradictions are insoluble, this is a cause for war, giants like China are looming behind the backs of local players, like China and Middle Eastern coins are tinkling, here you can only earn money from the warring parties, Sergey Viktorovich will explain what it is for maintaining a fragile peace, well, wait for the opportunity to act as a peacemaker, well, climb into this meat grinder
