The appearance of Russian Su-35s in Egypt will endanger the Israeli and US Air Force

The appearance of the Russian Su-35 in Egypt will lead to a military imbalance in the region. This is one of the best fighters of our time, which can provide an advantage to Cairo and jeopardize the Israeli and US Air Force, writes the British edition of Middle East Monitor.

Despite the US threats expressed earlier by the head of the State Department, Mike Pompeo, it became known that Egypt would still acquire these fighters from Russia. This could lead to Cairo falling under US restrictions under the Law on Countering America's Adversaries through Sanctions (CAATSA).

Simulation of air battles showed that the Russian Su-35 is superior to the American F-15 and F-22. In close combat, the Americans generally have no chance to resist the Russians.

Recently, the Russians began to fulfill the Egyptian contract, starting to manufacture fighter aircraft for Cairo. The agreement between Egypt and Rosoboronexport was signed back in 2018.

There is no doubt that the Su-35 poses a real threat to American fighters. They can compete even with the F / A-18 and F-35. That is, the Russian 4 ++ generation fighter can withstand the last fifth-generation American fighter. Although the Su-35 is an "improved version" of the Soviet Su-27, the end of the 80s.

Su-35s are armed with a whole high-precision missile and bomb arsenal and a 30-mm cannon. They are equipped with good engines that provide them with excellent maneuverability and guaranteed superiority over all fourth-generation fighters.

    Another .....
    For some reason, the F-22 will win immediately, but the slower, cheaper, slower F-35 fighter-bomber, for some reason, will not. Only "They can compete" yes "can resist".

    SU-35, did not take part in battles against Hel-Aavir. Therefore, conclusions are premature. In addition, in 1967, the highlight of the parade of captured Arab equipment of Soviet production was the demonstration battle of the MiG-21 with the French Mirage. At the helm of the captured MiG was the chief test pilot Hel Aavir. After the "battle", he recognized the superiority of the MiG over the Mirage in speed and maneuverability. So what? Did it help the Egyptian Air Force? So it is here. And this is provided that the content of the publication is true.

    To expand the horizons of the author - Israel and Egypt have 41 years of diplomatic relations, trade and tourism, moreover, they also have military cooperation in Sinai, for example. And during the short-term reign of “Muslim brothers,” Deja maintained relations with Israel. What can I say about now ... So I must greatly upset the author of this article - there is no Egyptian-Israeli confrontation and is not expected.

      Despite the US threats expressed earlier by the head of the State Department, Mike Pompeo, it became known that Egypt would acquire these fighters from Russia anyway. This could lead to Cairo falling under US restrictions under the CAATSA Act on Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions.

      Egypt is not the enemy of America, and does not want to become one, but it is written in them - for what? Because they bought the wrong weapon.
      What opponents of America are Israel friends with?
      And will there be the same friendship with Egypt if the United States writes Egypt in adversaries and begins to spread rot on it?

        She would never write it down. Moreover, it pays Egypt after the Cap David Treaty annually, not much less than Israel. And Al-Sisi has excellent relations with the United States. And only local idle "analysts" write down Egypt as the opponents of the USA.

    Conda will fill up at least one F-16, then we will learn about superiority.
