Egypt continues to build up its air strike group on the border with Libya


Cairo continues to build up its air strike force on the western border. Over the past few days, the Egyptian Air Force has transferred 18 fighters to the Habata airbase ("Habata").


Among the planes sent by the Egyptians were the French Mirage 2000 and Rafale, the Russian MiG-29M / M2 and the American F-16, that is, all types of relatively modern fighters available to Egypt. This information is proved by satellite images posted on the Web by users who are monitoring the situation in the north-eastern part of the African continent.


It should be noted that the Khabata airbase is located just 50 km from the border with Libya. This is an advanced military facility, which will be primarily involved in the event that Cairo decides to send its troops into a neighboring country.

Throughout 2019 and the first half of 2020, the Khabata airbase was actively modernized. It has new parking aprons, aircraft shelters.



It should be added that in total, the Egyptian Air Force has: 24 pcs. Rafale, 15 pcs. Mirage 2000 of several series, at least 14 pieces of MiG-29M / M2 and 218 pieces of F16 of various modifications (B, C and D). By the end of the year, the fleet of the MiG-29M / M2 of the Egyptian Air Force should be 46 single-seat MiG-29M and 6 two-seat MiG-29M2 intended for combat training of pilots. In addition, delivery of 5 Su-35s is expected, which have already been produced in Russia and are undergoing factory flight tests.

    From the border 50 km ... Hit with long-range means more powerful, (with multiple rocket launchers from 200mm they will get it) with several artillery raids, and Egypt without a large part of the Air Force ... To blame the unknown (as NATO people like), they say, the mercenaries of PMCs from the Bantustan unknown ...

      So you advised the gangsters to fire at the Russian base in Syria? Well, was it successful?

        Well, I don’t mind the Bantustans, the Moor has done his job, that with the Moor further, his problems, so in the United States they argue ... In Libya, the Russian Federation needs to play for Turkey, and the fuss there will become longer and the strategically important alliance with Turkey will be stronger ... Arabs more the United States on a leash together with Haftar, the Russian Federation from this the least sense ... It is always necessary to look beyond the nose ...

          Maybe in Syria for Turkey, along with the cannibalistic militants? To have more blood and it shed forever? For a strategic alliance with the Americans. We give them slaves and raw materials, and they give us chicken legs, so as not to die? I correctly discerned what's next to your nose ???

            When they poke at strangers, the insides are shown ... Not all cannibals are cannibals, you need to expand your knowledge ... A strategic alliance is possible when the strategic goals of states are approaching ... After a long cold and economic war, the United States is already proposing an alliance with Russia against China, our current strategic an ally, etc. ... But you don't seem to understand the content of your answers, do something simpler than politics ...

              After a long Cold War, the United States loved and respected the Russians and will only contribute to the prosperity of Russia?)) Probably still need to give the Kuban to the Ukrainians, otherwise the bad Kremlin offends the "brothers" of the Slavs there ... No, to let them have fun ... finish Ukrainization ... and if Russia also fed them forever ... then we would probably get the best friends from the Slavic peoples? For strategic purposes, maybe still the Kuril Islands to fit the Japanese? Not all fighters are cannibals ... I've already heard that about good and bad terrorists. Here it is not necessary to poke ... but to beat with a stick on an empty head and dunk your muzzle in the shit.
