Some details of the contract for the supply of Su-35 fighters to Egypt

Some details of the Russian-Egyptian contract for the supply of a batch of Su-35 multi-functional fighter jets to the Egyptian Air Force became known. This is reported by the resource Menadefense.net.


According to the resource, Russia and Egypt on March 19, 2018 signed a contract for the supply of the Egyptian Air Force 24 Su-35 fighters (according to other sources - 26 aircraft). According to the agreement, the first batch of two Su-35s should be delivered to Egypt before the end of this year. It is also known that the first aircraft assembled at the aircraft factory in Komsomolsk-on-Amur will be handed over to the customer before the end of the year, there is no exact information regarding the second, a shift due to coronavirus infection is possible.

The entire contract for all 24 fighters must be executed in 2023.

As previously reported, Egypt decided to purchase multi-functional Su-35 fighters and the corresponding armament for them against the background of the receipt of American F-35 fighters in the Israeli Air Force. Whether this statement is true is not known; in Egypt itself no comment is made on the deal.

In 2019, after the emergence of information about a fighter deal between Egypt and Russia, the United States threatened Cairo with sanctions of the Turkish type due to the acquisition of Russian military equipment. According to US media, a joint letter from the Pentagon and the US State Department threatened the country's defense minister, but in Egypt they called it "meddling in internal affairs" and stated that they were not going to give up Russian weapons.

      How interesting is it that they sold the plane?

      I hope for money, not for potatoes? Although the Egyptian potato is not bad ....
      1. I don’t know, I’m not happy.
        This is me about potatoes. They took a couple of times when the "unexpectedly" home supply ran out. Many tubers came across with black inside.
        But the green, sweet oranges, which were treated to excursions near Luxor, very, very! Like bananas from a banana island.

          1. Thank you, Nikolaevich ... I really didn’t think that you would equate me with the Papuans ... But, I hasten to disappoint. I did not fall for the beads. The history of ancient Egypt seemed closer to me.

              For God's sake, don’t think so! Honestly, I did not equate you with the Papuans! If he "equated" someone with "worthy representatives of the 3rd world", then most likely comrades from the ruling regime of the current government, who repeatedly give reason to equate them with the "Papuans"! When for sophisticated products ... with Russia they pay with bananas, tomatoes, palm oil, mats, dates, latex ... is it far from here to the "beads"?

Because there is a duty-free import. there is a shark, May fish, swordfish, sailfish, rocky perch, white perch .. awesome tasty fish ... so think well, in what currency do you prefer? for money you buy an order of magnitude worse quality in your stores winked

            Egypt decided to purchase Su-35 multi-functional fighters and the corresponding weapons for them against the background of the arrival of the American F-35 fighters in the Israeli Air Force.

      And what will the Arabs do with these modern planes? Confront Israel, so without aviation there are a lot of problems in the army. Drive the Bedouins in the Sinai is redundant.

        Despite the absence of strict restrictions, people voluntarily implement the recommendations of the Ministry of Health: there are fewer people in public transport and shops, almost all wear masks and keep their distance. And in the fresh air it’s almost imperceptible that there is some kind of covid-19. yes
        Do you think that the Egyptians really buy Su-35 to the peak of the Israeli F-35 or is the real reason silent? what

          Paul hi The Egyptians may have agreed to the principle “at our request!” For Russia cannot be lost this arms market. We do not know under what conditions the Su35 decided in Egypt to choose for purchase.

            In Egypt, the planned renewal of the fleet, they chose between the MiG-35, Su-35 and Rafal. Something went wrong with Rafal - both the demonstration accident and accident happened, so the choice of the Su-35 in this case is logical. And they hid / kept secret for a while so that the United States would not intervene. They have jealousy - they annually up to 2 billion dollars to Egypt. paid for the sake of non-war with Israel ... but after the Arab Spring and the Muslim Brotherhood, much has changed.
            And they can pay even in rubles - mutual trade is only growing. Russia opens up a market for Egyptian goods, and grateful Egyptians buy Russian weapons. Everything is fair.

          F 35 the Egyptians do not shine, for objective reasons, Su 35 is good in skilled hands and can do a lot .... only together with aviation equipment a whole complex of support, maintenance and organization of the combat process is needed.
          Without this, only “barmaley” and chasing.

      They have about 16 F-200s and 4 F-29s in the U.S. But the F-35s do not shine for them .. On the F-35 you need to invest and participate in production .. Egypt does not have such opportunities .. Therefore, decided to purchase su 35 ..
      P.S. Personally, I am skeptical of Arabs .. They are not constant .. especially in politics

    The main thing is that the Egyptians do not break the contract, due to delays in the supply of aircraft! And then the Yankees there will easily fuss, and we will also lose the Egyptian arms market.

      1. Today’s relations with Egypt and Russia are not the same as they were under the USSR.
      The retired General Amos Gilad, a former head of the military-political department of the Ministry of Defense, reportedly disagreed with the sale of submarines to Egypt and turned to the adviser to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. According to Gilad, the adviser said that Netanyahu approved the move. Germany does not officially require such permission, but because of the special relations between the two countries, she turned to Israel.
      2. Egypt receives annually from the United States the amount of $ 1,3 billion for the purchase of American military equipment and about 200 million for general needs.
      3. Egypt is not Turkey, it simply cannot withstand the pressure, and no one can guarantee that this aircraft will soon be at another airport.
      Cons for both future partners are more than pluses.

    It’s clear that the matter is dark. No normal sources have yet been given, there is neither the exact amount nor the exact number of aircraft delivered. And the deal is serious, you can’t hide the details so easily. While it resembles the construction of mythical corvettes for Algeria and submarines for Morocco
