      Why not with us? Our helicopters on the Mistral would just have an "appendage".

      ... raise agriculture.

      In those places, more than one millennium is a big problem with fresh water, that with rains, that with other sources of water. There are many people, it’s problematic to feed everyone, incomes from both the Suez Canal and tourism are not endless, so the eternal problems with those who want to profit at the expense of the Egyptians are permanent - hence the increasing demands for the protection of their own borders.

        Yes, this is understandable, it is not clear why these aircraft:
        Load capacity: 37 000 kg
        Wingspan: 42,40 m
        Length of aircraft: 45,10 m
        The height of the aircraft: 14,70 m
        Wing area: 221,5 m²
        Empty weight: 76 kg
        Maximum takeoff weight: 141 000 kg
        Domestic fuel: 50 500 kg
        Engine type: 4 theater of Europrop International TP400-D6
        Power: 4 x 11000 hp
        Cruising speed: 555 km / h (M = 0.68 - 0.72)
        Ferrying range: 8700 km
        Practical range: 7870 km
        Range with maximum load: 3300 km
        Maximum flight height: 12200 m
        Crew: 2-4 people
        Payload: 120 paratroopers or soldiers or 66 stretchers with escorts or 37000 kg of cargo or 41000 kg of fuel, loading options: 2 RAH-2 Tiger or AH-64 Apache helicopters, or 1 Cougar, NH90 helicopter, or 1 GTK armored vehicle , or 6 Land Rover vehicles, or 1 Roland rocket launcher, or two 5-ton trucks with 2 105-mm guns, or 1 40-foot ISO container, or 1 mobile crane.
        Until the Sinai Peninsula on the armored personnel carrier in any way? And why a satellite? A pair of UAVs will give much greater results! This is the campaign of the Islamic Coalition against "terrorism" arming itself. In addition, Egypt is a beggar, where did they scrape together money for the mistral?

      The illustration depicts a dead man manufactured by RSC Energia, which has worked in orbit for only a year and was shut down this spring.

      States are consistently pursuing their policies in BV. On the one hand, by the alliance of Qatar-Turkey, on the other, by the union of CA-Egypt-UAE. The last thing you can believe in is that the impoverished Egypt, amid the tourist crisis, buys a satellite, which he doesn’t need, for the last money. Saudis pay for the banquet. And the United States derives the maximum benefit from all this. As always.

    Egypt has far-reaching plans, and the basis of these plans is the military in power.

      In the 68th, they also had far-reaching plans. Only ended with Soviet help. The entire Soviet Army watched with interest as they plopped the only road across the desert Israel for two weeks to fight. We will beat, they say, we will win, they say ... The army, carts, waitresses ... And the Jews raised a squadron and in half an hour scattered them across the desert - I don't know whether more died from bombs or from thirst ... This is such a "small victorious war" ...

      Well they do not want to work and do not know how. Camels ride tourists and trade oranges - that’s all their talents. Stopudovo pyramids were built by aliens or Great-Ukry - THESE would not be able to. Who the hell are they for? Everyone has - and we need?

        I agree that it is not necessary to buy satellites with airplanes, but desalination machines for seawater, as well as a couple of solar power plants, to save money for agents too!

    "To buy a satellite" means to take it under control, after being put into orbit by the seller, that is, France from the Kuru cosmodrome. The French will also manage it (not the Egyptians ...) and transmit information to the Egyptians. But co-comrades will pay for the pleasure of the Saud, like the rest of the acquisitions of Egypt ... smile

    Egypt should better improve the quality of checks at its border and within the country, so that terrorists do not walk along the streets with weapons and tourists are calmer. And this is a lot of money for security. Instead, Egypt will spy on the Libyan border.

    And how do you determine whether it barely reduces or not? According to the IMF, Egypt ranks 2014th in GDP in 25 (out of 185 countries), according to the World Bank - 23 ...

    What you need is what he sees. Well, about a dozen of our satellites over Syria - thanks, have fun ...

    Why are we so excited? Well, you need a satellite - let them buy. The previous remote sensing satellite, by the way, we launched. So it’s not so bad for us either.

    He "climbed", as you say, into space only 19 years ago. But for you this is probably a revelation. You think that he just got ready and does not know that satellites should be launched ... Well, well. Continue and further err in the same spirit to raise your own self-awareness ...
