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.
