Helicopters Ka-52 and AH-64D Apache are shown on the deck of UDC "Mistral" of the Egyptian Navy during exercises


The Egyptian Navy demonstrated maneuvers using a landing ship of the Mistral type. This is one of those ships, which at one time was supposed to be part of the Naval fleet Russia on the basis of a contract signed with Paris. As you know, the previous president of France, F. Hollande, banned the supply of Mistral UDC to the Russian Federation, supporting the anti-Russian sanctions regime.


Subsequently, Russia received compensation in the region of 1 billion euros, and Paris ships were sold to Egypt.

Egypt, in its turn, forming the Mistral air wing, ordered Russia to order Ka-52 helicopters. Now it is these helicopters that are used in the maneuvers of the Egyptian Navy. Frames using Russian-made helicopters are shown on Egyptian television channels.

It is worth noting that in addition to the Russian Ka-52s, the Egyptian Navy uses the American Apache as part of the helicopter carrier wing Gamal Abdel Nasser (and this is the former Vladivostok). Also for the landing operation, helicopters SN-47C Chinook are used.



The footage shows how the American AH-64D Apache side by side with the Russian Ka-52, being a helicopter deck group aviation Egyptian naval forces. This is the first case of such a neighborhood.

Conducting exercises with the landing was carried out under the cover of army air defense equipment.

At one stage of the maneuvers, the landing platforms delivered armored vehicles equipped with machine guns to the shore. The landing force immediately entered the battle with a conditional enemy.

The command of the Egyptian forces does not hide the fact that the exercises with landing and the use of attack helicopters are aimed at demonstrating to foreign countries their readiness to defend the interests of Egypt in neighboring Libya. First of all, this is a signal from Turkey, which intends to send its military contingent to Libya to assist the army of Fayez Sarraj.

    Without air cover or even a powerful air defense squadron, this is nothing more than a sacrificial lamb.

      They’ll cover where they go. The main thing is that Egypt has it, and our only Kuznetsov is undergoing major repairs. And it’s not clear yet, maybe they’ll write them off for scrap. I keep silent about the prospects of deck aviation.

        Well, here is not the only Kuznetsov. Normal DBKshki die.

            These are what the Egyptians are now, not at all ancient.
            These are Arabs.
            And those that were previously Egyptians were yellow-haired. Who does not believe, look at the murals of the Josser Pyramid (the oldest of all) - there are murals and painted bas-reliefs.
            And the Arabs learn with difficulty.
            With difficulty, but trained.

    First of all, this is a signal from Turkey, which intends to send its military contingent to Libya to assist the army of Fayez Sarraj.
    Absolutely on the side which turntables will give Erdogan a beard. The main thing is that the result is.
    The proximity of Russian and American turntables on the same deck is the cost of military trade. Sometimes this does not happen. Weapons certainly have a nationality, but more important is the hardness of the hand holding a sword and a clear head controlling it. So you can quite successfully purchase at different bazaars, if your forge is not.

        Exosets regularly exploded and drowned English ships, although not always the ones they were aimed at. And the American bombs did not explode. If they had exploded from the English squadron, there would have been nothing really left.

          They claim that the Exocet warheads never exploded. For the destruction of both the destroyers and Atlantis, there was enough residual rocket fuel, in fact the ships died from fires.
          On May 4, 1982, the Exoset rocket from an Argentine attack aircraft sank the British destroyer URO Sheffield of type 42. The missile, which hit the ship’s hull, did not explode, but caused a fire that easily spread over the destroyer’s superstructure and resulted in the death of the ship.

            But the 20% of the detonated ammunition was more than enough to destroy six ships of the British squadron!
            - the destroyer "Sheffield" - burned down from unexploded PKR "Exochet";
            - the destroyer "Coventry" - died under the bombs of Argentine stormtroopers;
            - the frigate "Ardent" - numerous hits of aerial bombs, explosion of ammunition cellars;
            - frigate "Antilup" - two unexploded bombs, detonation when attempting to mine;
            - air transport “Atlantic Conveyor” - simultaneous entry of two Exocset anti-ship missiles;
            - the previously mentioned landing ship "Sir Galahad" - the damage was so severe that the British had to flood the ship into the Atlantic


            Apparently, 3 more missiles did not hit the target. Since there were only 6 aviation missiles.

            Having spent a reserve of anti-ship "Exosets" of airborne, the Argentines went on to improvise. From the old destroyer Segui, local craftsmen removed and reprogrammed two Ship-based Exosets - both missiles were transported by plane to the Falkland Islands, where they were secretly deployed to the coast waiting for British ships. Targeting was issued by the army mobile radar RASIT.

            12 June 1982 of the year under fire from the coast hit the destroyer "Glemmorgan" - the first missile missed, the second struck on the upper deck near the helipad and exploded, forming a 5-meter hole. The fragments and products of the explosion penetrated into the helicopter hangar, where at that time there was a fully fueled helicopter. The fire raged for four hours, 14 sailors died in the fight against fire. The next day, with the help of the shipmaster, the destroyer managed to regain limited combat capability.

              Three out of six missiles hit, another two Exocet missiles were shot down by the Sea Wolf air defense missile system, and one more was removed by passive interference delivered on time from the Plymouth frigate.

              I remember these stories from the book of V. Dotsenko "Fleets in local conflicts of the second half of the XX century." They mention a huge number of failures of high-tech weapons. In addition to missiles, for example, you can recall the Argentinean submarine "San Luis" three times missing the most modern guided torpedoes of American and German production from 10000 meters, 4600 meters and 2800 meters.

                The Falklands showed that any weapon is not absolutely- RCC can be shot down and taken away from the target by interference. And old bombs don't explode.

                  Not only the Falklands, but in WWII the Germans realized only a year later that almost all of their torpedoes did not explode :) However, stepping on the same rake after 40 years is also cool. :)

                  By the way, I read about the "destroyer Glamorgan", it seems that some eyewitness came up with the details about the rocket striking the deck laughing In general, she, too, did not explode, like the two that fell into Atlantis. :) In other sources, they say simply about getting the destroyer into the stern and a very strong fire.

                  By the way, the article by Kaptsov about the Falklands that you cited from 2013 looks very frivolous.

    Without air cover or even a powerful air defense squadron, this is nothing more than a sacrificial lamb.

    On bezryby and RIM-116 air defense.

        what Yes ... so to speak, the last frontier! Well, well, it’s very convenient, for example, if the attack is on the other side, you can quickly drive up to the other side and hit with an entire arsenal wassat

    The Egyptians had to call the helicopter carrier General Taburetkin. It would be an epic title.

    If you have money, you can buy everything, but what about spare parts in a combat situation?

    why do they need a subject? Well, for the purpose? to drop a landing party from the chinook on guadeloupe?

    I don’t know what this Apache is worth, but it looks like a vile insect.

    I don’t like Americans, but I have to admit that Apache is more perfect than ours ...

    Apache - the development of the 70s, what is the perfection?

    Somehow, everything is not briskly happening with them. In the program I serve the Soviet Union, everything looked more cheerful.

    So the Americans themselves wrote that their helicopters are the best in the world ... Well, that means it's true ...

    C'mon. A well-selling one, such as is often used, such as childhood illnesses, according to the Americans, has been eliminated, well, NATO is obliged to buy Apaches, as well as other US allies, because the USA said that this is the best helicopter.
