Russia offers Egypt modern equipment for Mistral ships
Ahram Online , Friday 18 Nov 2016

Russia and Egypt are currently negotiating to outfit two new Mistral-class
warships Cairo received this year with modern equipment and electronic
warfare systems, Russian news agency TASS said on Thursday.

“The Russian Federation has offered Egypt a wide range of equipment and
military hardware to mount on the Mistral helicopter carriers,” presidential
aide for military and technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin told TASS.

“Apart from helicopters, these are modern armament and electronic warfare
systems, navigational and auxiliary equipment and communications means,”
Kozhin said.

Moscow says its experts have presented recommendations to Cairo, including
necessary preparations to install the armaments.

“The negotiations on approving technical and commercial components are
continuing,” the Russian official added.

In June and September, Egypt received two French Mistral-class helicopter
carriers from France, part of a $1 billion deal signed last year.

The two ships were originally built for sale to Russia, but the sale was
canceled over the Ukraine crisis.
