    Recordar que Rusia llego a un acuerdo con Egipto para el suministro de material bélico por un valor de varios miles de millones de dólares.

    Saludos,
    Espérame y yo volveré, pero espérame mucho.
    Espérame cuando las tristes lluvias lleguen y cuando el calor llegue, no dejes de esperar
    Espérame aun cuando de lejos mis cartas no lleguen más
    Espérame y yo volveré para que la muerte rabie
    No comprenderán jamás los que jamás han esperado, cómo tú del fuego me salvaste
    Es que sencillamente me esperaste como nunca nadie me esperó.
    -Konstantin Simonov-

    France clinches first foreign sale of Rafale jets with Egypt contract

    By Agence France-Presse on Friday, February 13th, 2015


    France announced Thursday it will sell 24 Rafale fighters plus a frigate to Egypt in a 5 billion euro ($5.7 billion) deal that marks the first foreign contract for the multi-role combat jet.

    French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will travel to Cairo on Monday to sign the contact with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, a ministry source told AFP.

    “The Rafale fighter jet has won its first export contract,” French President Francois Hollande said in a statement issued by his office.

    “The signing will take place in Cairo on February 16. I have asked the defence minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, to sign on behalf of France,” he added.

    The military hardware would “allow Egypt to increase its security and assume its full role in the service of regional stability,” Hollande said.

    The Rafale jets are built by French manufacturer Dassault Aviation and have been used by the French air force in Libya and Mali.

    Landing the contract will come as a relief to Dassault Aviation, which had yet to land a single foreign sale after nearly three decades of development that cost tens of billions of euros.

    Dassault Aviation has been locked in negotiations to sell 126 Rafale jets to India since 2012, without making much progress.

    In another setback, France in 2013 failed to convince Brazil to buy its Rafale jets, losing out to Sweden’s Saab in a multi-billion dollar contract.

    The French government initially agreed to buy 11 Rafales a year for its air force to help the program. But in a bid to curb public spending it has since moved to scale back the number to only 26 planes in the next six years.
    Y a mí que me habían dicho que Francia "ha minado su credibilidad como proveedor fiable y serio", "se ha puesto la soga al cuello y se está tocando la viablidad del Rafale", y -desde la otra tribuna- que "el Rafale se desempeñó pobremente en Libia, y no pudo ni iluminar blancos".

    Fuera de los 24 Rafale + misiles MICA, SCALP EG (a.k.a. Black Shaheen), AASM, todos de fabricación francesa, van a recibir dos fragatas FREMM; para cumplir con la fecha de entrega del 5 de agosto de este año, los poco fiables y serios franceses le entregarán la Normandie a Egipto, en estos momentos en fase final de pruebas de mar.

    Interesante que de esos 24 cazas, dos tercios (16 en total) vayan a ser biplazas Rafale B, lo cual sugiere que la función primaria de los mismos será ataque a suelo (nada mal para el avión que se desempeñó "pobremente" en el rol durante la campaña de Libia, ¿eh?)

    Con todo lo que esté pasando en el Medio Oriente, cuelgo esta noticia acé antes que pase desapercibida: Egipto compró las Mistral.

    http://en.mercopress.com/2015/09/30/...-sold-to-egypt

    French Mistral helicopter carriers, originally for Russia, sold to Egypt
    France has agreed to sell two Mistral helicopter carriers to Egypt for 950 million Euros after their sale to Russia was canceled in August, French officials said on Wednesday.

    Cairo has sought to boost its military power in the face of a two-year insurgency based across the Suez Canal in the Sinai peninsula and fears the conflict in neighbouring Libya could spill over. Egypt's allies are also keen to burnish its image in a region beset by turmoil.

    “We unwound the contract we had with Russia, on good terms, respectful of Russia and not suffering any penalty for France,” Hollande told reporters on his arrival at an EU summit in Brussels.

    ”Yesterday, I agreed the price and conditions of this sale with (Egyptian) President Abdel Fattah al- Sisi and so France will ensure the delivery of these ships without losing anything, while helping protect Egypt.“

    A French defence ministry source said the contract was worth about 950 million euros, but unlike the deal with Moscow would not include any technology transfer. As of yet there had been no talks on the potential armament for the carrier, which can hold up to 16 helicopters and 1,000 troops.

    ”The ships should be handed over in early March after the training of about 400 Egyptians and some final tests,“ the source said.

    A diplomatic source said Cairo wanted to base one ship in the Mediterranean and another in the Red Sea, making it available for future operations in Yemen, where Egypt is part of a Saudi-led coalition fighting Houthi rebels.

    The French government agreed to reimburse 950 million euros to Moscow last month after the Mistral sale to Russia was canceled as a result of the Ukraine crisis.

    The deal with Egypt comes as France has nurtured new links with Sunni Arab states, which appreciate its tough stance on their Shi'ite rival Iran and similar positions on the region's conflicts.

    France has also benefited from what some Gulf countries perceive as disengagement from a traditional ally, the United States. Apparently the deal most likely will be part-financed by Gulf Arab states.

    Egypt and Saudi Arabia agreed at the end of July to work together to create a joint Arab military force.

    The Mistral is known as the ”Swiss army knife” of the French navy for its versatility. The sale will take the number of French naval vessels sold to Egypt to seven in just two years.

    Egypt last year bought four small Gowind warships, built by Mistral manufacturer DCNS, which is 64% owned by the French state and 35% by defense group Thales. It also acquired a French frigate as part of a 5.2 billion Euro contract for 24 Rafale warplanes earlier this year, France's first overseas export of the fighter jet.

    ... y en junio de este año recibieron formalmente la Normandie de manos de los "poco confiables" franceses, comisionada como Tahya Misr en la Armada Egipcia:

    DCNS Transfered the FREMM Frigate Tahya Misr to the Egyptian Navy

    France handed over the FREMM Multi-Missions frigate Tahya Misr (meaning Long Live Egypt) with hull number 1001 to the Egyptian Navy during a ceremony held June 23rd at the DCNS shipyard of Lorient in Brittany. Egypt becomes the second FREMM export customer for DCNS following Morocco which commissioned the Mohammed VI frigate in 2014.


    The Chief of Staff of the French Navy (left), French Defense Minister (center) and Egyptian Defense Minister attended the ceremony.

    The ceremony took place in presence of General Sedki Sobhy, the Ministry of Defense of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Jean-Yves Le Drian, the French Ministry of Defense, Admiral Osama Rabie, Commander in Chief of the Egyptian Navy, Admiral Bernard Rogel, the French Chief of Navy and Hervé Guillou, Chairman & CEO of DCNS. This important event marked the transfer of ownership of the FREMM Tahya Misr from DCNS to the Egyptian Navy.

    Originally named Normandie, the Frigate was intended for the French Navy (second Aquitaine class frigate for the French Navy). On Monday 16 February 2015 however, DCNS signed a contract with the Ministry of Defence of the Arab Republic of Egypt for the supply of the FREMM Normandie multi-mission frigate. This agreement strengthened the strategic relations initiated by DCNS last July with the signing of a contract to supply four Gowind 2500 corvettes. Egypt becomes the second export customer of the FREMM after Morocco and second customer of the Gowind 2500 after Malaysia.

    In addition to the vessel, the contract includes support and through life support services for five years as well as training by DCI NAVCO acting as contractor to DCNS.

    As was the case for the Royal Morrocan Navy’s Mohammed VI FREMM, the former Normandie saw its second row of vertical launch system (SYLVER A70, used to launch MBDA’s naval cruise missiles) and the two SIGEN R-ECM electronic warfare and jammer systems removed because of export limitations for these sensitive equipments. The SATCOM antenna for the Syracuse system was also taken down because it can only be used by the French Navy. The crew of the Tahya Misr will be around 126 sailors (compared to 108 in the French Navy)

    All other weapons, systems and equipments remains similar to French Navy’s Aquitaine class, including the two Nexter Narwhal 20B remote weapon stations (contrary to the Mohammed VI where they are not installed).

    Acquired (at a expedited pace) for the Suez Canal commemoration ceremony to be held in early August, the Tahya Misr is set to become one of the most powerful surface combatant in the MENA region.


    The Tahya Misr going out of DCNS shipyard the day after the transfer ceremony for her first sea trials with the Egyptian Navy crew onboard.

    "A year ago, DCNS wrote the first lines of a strategic partnership bringing together the Group and the Egyptian Navy. Today, this privileged tie has taken on a new dimension. This event constitutes an important step in the crew taking on the FREMM", stated Hervé Guillou, Chairman & CEO of the DCNS Group. "The supply of this latest-generation frigate comes on top of the contract for four GOWIND 2500 corvettes signed in 2014. We are very proud to supply the Egyptian Navy with high-tech ships which will contribute towards the renewal of their surface-ship fleet" he added.

    Since the signature of the contract on 16 February of this year with the Ministry of Defense of the Arab Republic of Egypt, for the supply of a FREMM multimission frigate, DCNS has carried out the adaptation and outfitting work required for the Egyptian Navy to take on the ship. Furthermore, from March 2015, DCNS has been training the Egyptian crew. In order to operate such a highly-automated ship safely, DCNS and its partners accompany the crew for a period of 15 months. The program is composed of several phases: theoretical modules, on-land training using platforms and simulators and then onboard training both at the quayside and at sea.
