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

63

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.

      Will cover where they go. The main thing is that Egypt has it, and our only "Kuznetsov" is undergoing overhaul. And it's not clear yet, maybe they will write it off for scrap. I keep quiet about the prospects of carrier-based aviation.

            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.

    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, two more Exocet missiles were shot down by the Sea Wulf air defense system, another was carried away by passive jamming delivered in time from the frigate Plymouth.

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

                  By the way, I read about the "destroyer" Glamorgan "", it looks like some eyewitness came up with details about the missile that struck 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.

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

    I do not like Americans, but I have to admit that the "Apache" is more perfect than ours ...

    ... Who compared where and when? ...

    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.
