    "The Ministry of Defense reported that the main objective of these exercises is the exchange of experience of servicemen of the two countries,"
    This is interesting, when ours started working there on this topic, in the early 70s, the Israeli Air Force got it hard. As the air defense was handed over to the Egyptians, everything immediately went to pieces. "Exchange of experience", as I understand it, is that the Egyptians will teach our people to leave the position as quickly as possible at the slightest threat from the air and hide behind the nearest dune. For speed. lol laughing

        We are talking about the air defense system, which strongly "pinched" the Israeli Air Force both during the "war of attrition" and during the "Yom Kippur" war ... And provocations and ambushes with "bases" - you have always had masters at this .. ...
        "Pomegranate" is an episode of this war.

          It's about an air defense system

          Are you talking about it?
          In June 1982, the largest aerial battle unfolded in the skies over Lebanon since World War II, in which hundreds of combat aircraft participated on both sides. During the battle, the Israeli Air Force literally wiped out Soviet air defense systems and knocked down more than eighty enemy MiGs in air battles. without losing a single plane. and seized dominance in the air. The tactical and technical methods of conducting air warfare, developed and successfully tested by the Israeli command during this large-scale operation, largely determined the development paths of military aviation, air defense systems, electronic warfare systems (EW), and unmanned aircraft in the 21st century..

            You have a methodical error. These are not Soviet air defense systems. And the weapons delivered to Syria. Technique in the hands of a savage - scrap. This is well shown by the Hussites.

              Well, yes. On duty excuse after a universal bummer. We must assume that these serious comrades were collecting oranges there:
              In Syria and Lebanon, there were continuously high-ranking Soviet representatives who directly supervised the Syrians and Palestinian terrorists. Among them, it is worth noting the head of the Main Directorate, the first deputy chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR, General V. Varennikov, in the near future - a member of the State Emergency Committee and a permanent deputy from the Communist Party in the State Duma of Russia.


              The main military adviser and adviser to the Minister of Defense of Syria was Colonel General G. Yashkin, who arrived in Syria from the post of deputy commander in chief of the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany. Air Force deputies - Lieutenant General V. Sokolov, Air Defense - Lieutenant General K. Babenko, EW - Major General Y. Ulchenko subordinated to him. Thousands of Soviet officers were at all levels of command of the Syrian forces - from batteries and companies to the Syrian Ministry of Defense

                    Then the F-15s were first used.
                    Against MiG-21.
                    Plus the geography and terrain (closing angles for ground-based radars in Syria), plus the presence of AWACS aircraft from Israel (E-2C). A little later, the situation was broken, the Hawkeye was shot down, new modifications of the MiG-23 (50 pcs.), S-200 arrived in Syria ...
                    The Israeli Air Force has been and remains the best in the region, which is why its neighbors are improving air defense.

            War is propaganda. Israel claims that they defeated all, shot down forty with a tail of planes, crushed nineteen air defense brigades (it is interesting to know whether Syria had so much at all), well, as Syria I also said about forty Israeli planes. How do you suggest finding out who is lying more?

      as I understand it, lies in the fact that the Egyptians will teach ours to leave their position as soon as possible with the slightest threat from the air and hide behind the nearest dune.
      Have you personally, at least once, seen how our specialists are fleeing from positions or from the battlefield? As history shows, everything is the other way around.

        Here it is. Moreover, for the Western partners, for their Patriots, they are preparing a new hemorrhoids.
        In Russia, the unmanned combat aircraft complex "Flock-93." The product design was presented at the Interpolitex-2019 exhibition. A promising domestic system is designed to destroy air defense systems, armored vehicles and enemy manpower. The Flock 93 represents up to 100 small bomber drones. Each device can carry a bomb weighing 2,5 kg. According to the developer, the “swarm” of UAVs is capable of causing serious damage to the enemy at ranges of up to 150 km. Experts believe that the "Pack-93" will be an effective weapon in the fight against terrorists and high-tech adversaries.

    I watch the Egyptians stocked up well. strong air defense. BEECH, TOP .Shilki and ..hz have bought something else. probably getting ready for a new war. Ethiopia will probably butt. and in vain ... would the Ethiopians be left alone, they are the most meek of the Africans, and the Orthodox seem to be, there is a Greek church, although in Egypt there is also a Greek Orthodox church, and quite influential. I don’t know how in the world, but we reckon with it.

      If I am not mistaken, Egypt has no friction with Ethiopia. And territorially, Egypt may have more claims to Libya and Sudan, plus a historical confrontation with Israel.

        With Ethiopia, the biggest complaints are there, moreover, Egypt issued an ultimatum if a new hydroelectric power station is completed, which cuts off the Nile from Egypt. And the probability of war is very high.

    and air defense organization to cover important facilities.
    It is precisely the skills of organization and discipline in service and combat work that the Arabs traditionally lack. But on the other hand, it wasn’t horse feed — how many of them had been taught these things in the last sixty years, and things are still there. So to teach them the basics of air defense tactics is a good thing, but at the end of the exercises there is little that will change there. But here the fact of military-political cooperation, the acquisition of additional experience for ourselves, the very presence at this theater, the establishment of new ties and, ultimately, the pushing of the Egyptian military to cooperate with our military-industrial complex, are more important to us.
