Egypt will receive Russian Bastion complexes amid events in Libya


Egyptian authorities will receive Russian mobile coastal missile systems K-300P "Bastion-P" in order to protect its northern coast, as well as gas fields in the Mediterranean. Corresponding framework contract for the supply of military equipment signed between Cairo and Moscow in 2013, but was never brought into effect. Now the Egyptians decided to speed up the supply of defensive systems. It is reported by the Arab edition of Arabic Defense.


Intensify measures to protect their interests Egypt force events in Libya. Turkish activity in this troubled region is growing every month. Admiral Adnan Ozbal, Commander-in-Chief of the Turkish Navy, paid a visit to Tripoli for consultations with senior military servicemen. This was reported on July 1 by the Hürriyet Daily News. Ozbal had a lengthy conversation with the chief of the General Staff of the troops, Saraj Mohammad al-Sharif, on the basis of the Navy of the Government of Popular Accord "Abu Sitta" in the Libyan capital.

The Russian Bastion missile system is capable of protecting about 600 km of the sea coast from probable landing operations of the enemy. In order to deploy the system in combat positions and bring it into a state of readiness, it takes only five minutes.

Official Cairo strengthens military capabilities against the background of what is happening in Libya and in light of the situation taking shape near the northern coast of Africa. Egyptian authorities were particularly worried after the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak reported on Ankara’s plans to establish a naval base in Misurat in northwestern Libya.

In recent years, the Egyptian army received Russian MiG-29M2 fighters, S-300V4 air defense systems, and Mi-35 attack helicopters. A batch of Su-35 fighters is being prepared for delivery. Also in the coming years, the assembly of T-90MS tanks will be deployed in the country.

    - Well, this is clear ...
    - And what's that??? ...:

    Also in the coming years, the assembly of T-90MS tanks will be deployed in the country.

    - What kind of assembly is this ??? - Russia that ... will supply components; and Egypt will collect tanks from them ??? - It's a strange thing ... - to take out own production of new tanks that are in demand on the world arms market ... - to take this production to a problem state, which is located from Russia in a problematic "reach-accessibility" ... - How to go there in general, at present, to get ... - every time through the Turkish straits ???
    - Even in the times of the USSR (for which the USSR then fought for the "liberation of the peoples of the whole world") ... - and then they did not think of it ... - The USSR supplied weapons; but so that somewhere new Russian tanks were assembled abroad ... - Even the countries of the Warsaw Pact were not honored ...

      Regarding the Warsaw Pact countries - learn the materiel. And the T-90 has long been assembled by India, from kits. Car kits will be produced in Russia, and in Egypt assembled to the heap.

      This is just an ordinary screwdriver assembly of components made in Russia. India has already collected more than 500 T-90 tanks in this way and the Indians want to collect 468 more advanced T-90M tanks at their place. They also showed great interest in the T-14 Armata and are ready to purchase them.

      to make their own production of new tanks that are in demand in the global arms market ... - to make this production in a problem state

      You do not distinguish the production of equipment from its assembly from the supplied parts? Then discuss those issues that are closer to you as a woman. As the Germans say, three "K" - Kinder, Küche, Kirche (kinder, küche, kirche; with German - “children, kitchen, church”)

        - Do you yourself distinguish something ???

        As the Germans say, three "K" - Kinder, Küche, Kirche (kinder, küche, kirche; with German - “children, kitchen, church”)

        - What do you climb there that you have no idea ??? - You and the kitchen worker should be ...- this is just the waste from the kitchen ...
        - On this topic...:
        - Why would China suddenly take and ... and ... and place them in Russia ... - in Russian cities and villages dozens of its Huawei branches ??? - Create joint ventures in Russia to create telecommunications; holdings, laboratories where new software, new telecommunication equipment, etc. would be created ???
        - And to open new enterprises in Russia, and create jobs in Russia ...- it’s only joy for Russia ... - Yes, the Chinese will laugh for a week when they hear this ... - Hahah ...

        - Do not expect another from China ...
        - They often cite examples from the field of "cooperation" between Russia and India ... - For a long time, India has been collecting Russian tanks allegedly under a license (about the production of "joint missiles" and aircraft ... - I will not mention it) and even, allegedly from its own components ... - Yes, India has simply eaten away the whole bald patch of Russia with its more and more growing claims and demands ... - And how much does it cost Russia ..
        - Personally, I recently wrote about this ... - I can even repeat all excerpts from my comment ...

    Good news.
    By providing assistance to Egypt, the Russian Federation will strengthen friendly ties with this country.
