It became known about the sale of 400-500 T-90MS tanks to Egypt


Moscow and Cairo signed a contract for the supply of 400-500 T-90MS tanks for the Egyptian army. The contract provides for the transfer of technologies and the organization of joint production of military vehicles in Egypt. This was announced on June 26, 2020 on Facebook by the Minister of Transport of the country, Major General Kamel al-Wazir.


Organization of the T-90MS production will allow Egypt to acquire technologies for creating tanks and armored vehicles, enriching the already existing experience in the joint production of M1A1 Abrams tanks with the American side, which has been ongoing since 1992

- the minister wrote.

Al-Wazir stressed that this deal will provide an opportunity to significantly increase Egypt's military power in the region, making it the largest operator of T-90MS tanks. At the same time, Egypt will be the first state to simultaneously produce Russian and American tanks.

We remind you that Egypt has numerous tank troops. Of more or less modern combat vehicles, Cairo has 34 T-80U tanks and 1100 M1A1 Abrams. In storage are 840 pieces of T-54/55 and 260 Ramses II tanks (American modernization of the T-54/55). Of the 500 T-62 units, only 200 are in service, the remaining are in storage. There are still 300 old American M60A1 and 850 M60A3.

    - Well .. that’s understandable and welcome

    The agreement provides for the transfer of technology and the organization of joint production of military vehicles in Egypt.

    - And this is why ...- The whole agreement is simply blown away like a balloon ... - Russia simply acquires “the second India” in the person of Egypt ...
    - In the subject:

    It will not be easy for Russia to win the new “gas war” with Qatar

    - Personally, I have already mentioned India about Russia's deliveries of Russian weapons to it and the creation of Russia with India of such a "joint production of military vehicles" ... - I just do not want to repeat myself ...

      The volume of Russian arms exports to India is 30% of the total Russian arms exports. 30%, Karl, sorry, Irina. Here you can close your eyes to dances with tambourines and other tricks.

    The Egyptians buy at the expense of the Saudis, like wagons, and much more. Obviously a deal in Libya. True, the Turks were offended and stopped buying gas.

    Why are you happy? What will they build another plant outside of Russia, where technologies will be transferred, on which they worked so much, and so much money is invested that not a single batch of sold tanks will pay back? Are you happy about this?

    That Russia sells such a large number of tanks to Russia is good, let them buy more ...
    But why sell Russian tank technology to Egypt and organize joint production for their production in Egypt - I think this is NOT RIGHT.
