Egypt expressed a desire to purchase a radio-electronic “stuffing” from the Russian Federation for acquired Mistral

39
There are reports that the Egyptian Ministry of Defense has turned to Russian colleagues with a request to supply radio-electronic equipment for Mistral helicopter carriers acquired from France. It is about the very Mistral-type ships that were built for the Russian Federation at the shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, but the deal fell through in connection with the sanctions, and France paid compensation to Russia.


Information Agency TASS With reference to a source in the Egyptian military department reports:
The Egyptian military delegation, which held talks with Rosoboronexport, unequivocally announced its desire to install Russian radio-electronic weapons, including radio-electronic warfare equipment, purchased from France Mistrals, and requested it to be delivered.

Egypt expressed a desire to purchase a radio-electronic “stuffing” from the Russian Federation for acquired Mistral


It is noted that the main Egyptian military department is preparing a request to Rosoboronexport with a proposal to purchase specific radio-electronic equipment that will be installed on the helicopter carriers. Recall that after the conclusion of the contract between Egypt and France, warships received new names. From “Sevastopol” and “Vladivostok” they turned into “Anvar Saddat” and “Gamal Abdel Nasser” (the names of the Egyptian presidents).

Earlier it was reported that Russia and Egypt were negotiating the purchase of Russian equipment for helicopter carriers, but the results of the negotiations were not reported. Now it is clear that a contract may be concluded soon.

      And laughter and sin, however, if Egypt has the workable Mistrals, then in one fell swoop it will become one of the most specific forces in the region.

        Duc, Egyptians, Arabs. And let them not, all to no avail. God forbid, they will be able to use, if necessary, 30-40 percent.

          "... Russian electronic weapons, including electronic warfare equipment ..." is a good, correct desire, one might say. Only expensive, comrades Egyptians. Very expensive. Like the entire ship, our electronic equipment is worth it.

            I don’t know how expensive it is, but I have doubts about the advisability of selling our modern electronic warfare equipment for export. Today they bought the Mistral, tomorrow our REB, after tomorrow they will go on joint exercises with the Americans. Or just give them. Do we need it?

          Do you think this is possible? After all, the Egyptians can also solder the sanctions ...
          Although I like the thought.

        I, purely feminine, are tormented by one question: but what the heck are these Mistrals to Egypt, unless to resell to someone, and even then if there are no restrictions on resale?

      About helicopters, a bit wrong. It was made for heavier and higher helicopters than in the base. That is, he can use regular NH-90 + Tiger, well, and Ka-52 and Ka-29. By the way, if the drums are clear, then what kind of transport helicopters there will be, has not yet been announced.

      Egypt has already ordered 5 NH-90 in the PLO version.

    Great! At someone else's expense, we practically received the entire project, so we will also run the "stuffing", and we will supply the helicopter group. A dream, not a contract.

    The equipment for themselves and for partners is a bit different equipment. After a little refinement, it is quite possible to sell. Helicopters will go by trailer.

    It seems that after a year and a half or two it becomes clear that Russia gave the go-ahead for the implementation of the Mistrals to Egypt because it itself had previously agreed with the latter on their further resale to Russia itself. An interesting situation would have developed then. If that would be so. Eo than h ... not joking ...

      If that would be so

      That would be the deal of the century, because the Egyptians did not spend a cent on the purchase of ships - the Saudis paid for them all.

    I hope that everything that our experts removed from the Mistral is far from cleaned,
    drove the pelvis to twist everything back.
    Our work, and they will sell helicopters for them.

    An ambiguous attitude to this deal ...

    On the one hand, the equipment was manufactured, installed - and - then - removed ... But it was imprisoned specifically for these ships ... That is, it is gathering dust in warehouses ... It seems to be necessary and even profitable for us to sell it ...

    On the other hand, Egypt, no matter what you say, is not a friend ... And betrayed and framed, everyone was enough ... And behind this purchase there are Saudis, who, anyway, are not friends to us either ...

    The question is where Egypt (read - Saudi Arabia) will then use these ships ???

    And the talk that supposedly Egypt will later resell these troughs to Russia is a baby talk ...

      You never know. And if their relations with the United States deteriorate in the terrorist attack with the Twin Towers? Yes, the Saudis will not only agree to sell the Mistrals to us, but they can change their views on Syria as well. - But this is of course from the realm of fantasy.

      If the Saudis demand (again, hypothetically) Egypt to return the money to them for the Mistrals, then the best way out for Egypt will be their sale (to us).

        This is their personal, long-standing showdown ... The fact that they are biting is beneficial for us ... But we are unlikely to become friends when ...

        Well, in Syria they are unlikely to change their views ...

        With the Saudis, we have radically opposite goals both in the BV and in the general world ...

Americans outrageous and cunning bend the floor of the world! And these as you put it troughs, with attack helicopters and submarines with helicopters on board, a serious argument on any seas!

    Guys, you forget the most important aspect! Everything, absolutely all radio-electronic equipment produced in Russia for military needs, will work only for Russia, in whose hands it is not! So ours will put one hundred percent, and there will be more fat! “Stouretkin” did not have to remember with a kind word, otherwise it’s how it happened, the deal with the Mistrals is his, and Russia is profitable so far! He is of course still a thief, but still, reforms in the army started with him!

    Egypt will now buy everything that it will be allowed for Saudi money (they buy the Mistrals for landing in Yemen). If only our tourists are back. This offset will be with every discussion of what they will want to buy.

      Egypt will now buy everything that it will be allowed on Saudi money (Mistrals buy them for a landing in Yemen) Yemen is not located on the river or the devil knows where the Saudis have a land border there, so there will not be any high-rise. Egypt itself does not want to climb into this swamp called Yemen

    indeed, it turned out funny, and it will be possible to raise money on this "unsuccessful deal".
    However, the option of transferring the Mistral to Russia is unlikely, they are not worth the bargain that might turn out for any reason, I’m more inclined to believe that one of the troughs can moor on the shores of the Chinese, especially since there is an opportunity to get Russian technology, albeit in truncated form.
    well, purely like a crazy idea wink

    I don’t agree where they have their base, I repeat, if the Mistrals are fully charged, then Egypt will become very strong competitors to Israel and the Saudis, and many others in that region.
