Su-35 versus F-15EX: Egypt and Israel will arm themselves with even more dangerous fighters


The Egyptian and Israeli air forces are currently in service with the Dassault Rafale and F-15C Eagle fighters, respectively. These are the most advanced aircraft in their military. Comparing these combat vehicles, experts at The Military Watch Magazine believe that they will soon be replaced by the more powerful and dangerous Su-35 and F-15EX.


Previously, Egypt did not have access to heavy combat aircraft. His air force fleet consisted of single-engine F-16 and MiG-21. After 2010, Cairo acquired French Dassault Rafale and Russian MiG-29s. However, these fighters also belonged to the category of light ones, despite the presence of two engines already. At the same time, the Israeli Air Force had heavy F-15s, which gave Tel Aviv a certain advantage in the region.

Both the Rafale and the F-15C are expected to be replaced with more powerful aircraft for air superiority in the near future. At the same time, Egypt will receive a Russian Su-35 fighter of the 4 ++ generation, which will become the first heavy combat aircraft in Egypt. According to experts, Israel, in turn, will place an order for 25 F-15EX aircraft.


Both the Su-35 and the F-15EX have their own advantages. Thus, the Russian vehicle boasts super-maneuverability, less radar signature and more advanced long-range missiles R-37. In turn, the American fighter has a higher top speed and can carry much more ammunition - 22 air-to-air missiles or 28 SDB guided bombs.

    The author, it seems, is not aware that Israel and Egypt signed a peace treaty in 1979, and by the way, even during the short rule of the "Muslim Brotherhood" led by Mursi, no one thought to break it. Diplomatic relations, trade, tourism, and moreover - also military cooperation in the elimination of militants in the Sina. Therefore, the acquisitions of Israel and Egypt have nothing to do with each other.

      Did anyone write about the war? It's about military influence in the region. Cairo and Tel Aviv are never allies or friends.

        The author clearly opposes Israel and Egypt, influence in the region has nothing to do with it. And as for allies and friends - we do not need warm love - there are diplomatic relations, trade, tourism, and I repeat, even military cooperation. Nothing else is required. Everyone is happy.

          The author clearly contrasts Israel and Egypt

          This is your personal perception. In principle, you react excitedly to everything connected with Israel.

          ... there are diplomatic relations, trade, tourism, and I repeat, even military cooperation.

          Tourism? Are the Egyptians going to Eilat, which is in their own Red Sea?

            This is not my personal perception, but directly follows from this article. Yes, tourism - Israelis go to Sinai very willingly, although Eilat has the Red Sea, he was there a couple of years ago. And the answer is simple - everything is much cheaper there. than in Eilat. And where did you see the excitement? Just expressed my opinion about this post.

    At the level of state politics, Egypt and Israel very often act as allies. Libya, shelf, Sinai, Gaza, Turkey, Iran - it is clear that this is a situational union, but it is a good substitute for direct confrontation.

    The author does not know that the most modern aircraft in Israel are the F-35? And not one or two ...
