On June 2, 2016, Egypt received the first Mestral helicopter carrier, nicknamed Gamal Abdel Nasser, The second carrier took over in September of the same year ... But after a while Egypt discovered that both of the two normal pieces that changed its combat and did not enter the technology and
Quoting the site of Russia today, saying that Egypt has used the Russian experience to convert the pilots of the two planes, Mistral Abdel Nasser and Sadat, which got them in two deals from France after the disruption of these relations between Russia and France because of sanctions  by EU. 
And that Egypt has received the two Mestral  from France earlier last year discovered that they are devoid of technology
And thus formed a development committee for both carriers and so Russia will provide full support and stability of the deal to lead the training of Egyptian pilots in addition to the development and addition of technology for these carriers
According to the site of Russia today said

"Egypt obtained Mistral from France, but without the technology of the Mistral ships and its own armament equipment, which Russia had built so that Mistral would not be a naval vessel like any ship that could not launch naval attacks."
The report provided information that Russia would cooperate with Egypt to transform
 "Mistral" Egyptian to lethal weapon, how will you do this?

Russia has been preparing after the negotiations with Egypt to supply special equipment and technology to Egypt, to prepare the aircraft carriers "Mistral"
Egypt looked for a state that could turn these ships from ordinary navy into a deadly naval weapon, and finally found that Russia was the best country in this cooperation, especially since it had already manufactured the equipment and technology of the carriers.
In this regard, Russia has proposed to Egypt to supply the Egyptian Mestral helicopters with weapons systems, modern military equipment, electronic warfare devices, navigation equipment and auxiliary devices
Not only did Russia provide total support to Egypt through modern technology, but it had already won a big tender announced by Egypt, and will supply 15 helicopters of the type "Ka 52k" (crocodile) to Egypt before the end of this year, Russia ", Andrey Boginsky:" In August we plan to supply the second batch of three helicopters "Ka 52K" to Egypt.
He added: "The first three helicopters were supplied, and the Egyptian experts are being trained to use them." In general, 15 K-52 helicopters are scheduled to be supplied to the applicant in 2017.
The K-52K is an amendment to the Ka 50, known as the Black Shark, designed to detect and identify various targets, both mobile and fixed, as well as the destruction of armored vehicles, enemy helicopters and low-flying aircraft.
The main distinguishing feature of the Marine version of the "Ka 52K" helicopter is the carrier system, which allows the chopper blades to fit into the "Mistral" carrier.

In 2011, Russia and France signed a contract under which Paris would supply 1.2 million Euros with two helicopters. The contract provided that Moscow would receive the first carrier in November 2014, but the situation in Ukraine The sanctions imposed by Western countries on Russia against the backdrop of the Ukrainian crisis prevented the fulfillment of Paris obligations under the deal.
Later, France agreed with Egypt to sell the ships. The first was handed over last June and Gamal Abdel Nasser was named. In September, Egypt received the second helicopter carrier named Anwar Sadat.

The army vehicle moved to get the car away but they aimed to get close of him, then the officer be sure that this is a bomber car was on a suicide mission and lives were at risk near a military security checkpoint in North Sinai.

The scene was difficult as there were tens of civilians behind him in their cars as well other army crew of cars...without thinking the brave army officer " Mohammed Talat Almesary" took the decision and turned round then get over it to smash at all, and no soon the car exploded with its 100 kilogram of explosion... The officer did his mission and he knows may  the car exploded in him, but  he doesn't care of his life,because his interest is to save the people and prevent the killers of the terrorists...Mohammed Talat Almesary saved about hundred people in this incident.

No one was hurt, during his turn with the tank, he did not touch a single car in the stalled road
Only seven persons, including suicide bombers, were killed.

The video showed a great miracle in how to climb that skill on the car bombarded with explosives, which amounted to 100 kilos of explosives and no one was injured during the attack and run over the car

Egypt suffers from terrorism and fights on its own behalf on behalf of the world and foils many terrorist operations in the Sinai and western Egypt on the Libyan border

Seven civilians, including two children, were killed when the car bomb exploded but the quick thinking of the tank crew appears to have averted a much higher death toll.

The explosion happened 200 metres from its military target, “when an Egyptian soldier used a tank to stop the vehicle,” according to an Egyptian army statement.

The victims — three men, two women and two children -- “happened to be in the area in front of the ambush during the blast,” the statement added, without saying when the incident happened.

“The explosion was large, carrying about 100 kilograms of high explosives,” an army spokesman said in the statement.

Egypt’s military is battling a local affiliate of the Islamic State group that has waged a deadly insurgency in the northern Sinai, killings hundreds of members of the security forces.

Since the revolution of 30 june 2013 and the muslim brother group covering with the support of Qatar, Turkey and others ,attacked Egypt with terrorist operations that killed hundred of Egyptians...they also attacked the christians and exploded more 32 churches, the last two churches were attacked one  in Alexandria and the other in Tanta city , killed more than 54 Egyptian Christians and injured about 154...

Also they launch deadly attacks on North Sinia and aimed to kill  army and police troops ...The war still on its field but it needs the free voice of the world to stand beside Egypt who try hardly to defeat the terrorism as well to secure its people from Christians and muslims , building a strong country wants to live in peace and search for a place to it in the modern civilization .
