Egypt is in the process of purchasing a type-71 Amphibious landing craft for the transport and landing of tanks, armored personnel carriers and soldiers, as well as the possibility and possibility of buying the ZBD05 Amphibious Infantry Vehicles, military official website Military.China.com reported.

This comes after Egypt bought the two Amphibious attack ships helicopters carrying French "Mistral" (LHD Landing Helicopter Dock), which confirmed the need for Egypt's (LPD) Landing Platform Dock, which belongs to the Type-071.

The Type-071 is a 19,000-tonne 210-meter-long ship capable of carrying four 13-ton helicopters, 18-tank or 60-armored vehicles and up to 800 troops, with a range of 19,000 km. It is equipped with a 76-mm multi-function AK-176 cannon and four AK-630 Air defense systems against approaching air threats, which is similar to the US Falanx system..

How is Egypt getting? Looks like Eygpt is building up against Turkey very quickly.
Saudi financing is helping us, and yes we are building up against Turkey because of their aggression. during the visit, it was also said we expressed interest in the Type 052D and Type 054A, I really hope we get the destroyers

Oops I was actually trying to say how many did Egypt order of those babies. This is deadly. I hope Eygpt does not neglect other branches of the army. I heard the US has cut military aid how credible is that?

we only have 1 071 LPD in talks as of now, because we have 2 Mistrals the ones formerly built for Russia. ours ties with the US have actually increased since Trump came into power so far we have ordered 10 AH-64E, 1,000 more MRAPs, 56,000 tank rounds for the M1 Abrams, negotiations for the F-16V upgrade for some F-16s to name a few.

Egypt can actually ally with Greece to kick Turkey away not to prospect for gas around the territorial waters of Greece and Cyprus.

Will the F-16 upgrade be done locally?

we been conducting a ton of exercises with Greece, but remember they might get attacked first if a conflict with Turkey breaks and we also need to be able to defend ourselves, that's why we been on the buying spree lately.

Egypt was once a formidable military power in the region, and under Sisi they are again trying to make a mark. But there economy is weak.

tbh I don't know if the Saudis can bankroll this much. There's a limit in Riyadh too. I think your military leaders are putting some of the profits Egypt's military companies make towards procurement. Pakistan is now trying to move towards this model as well. But the point I'm making is that Egypt's procurement is more independent than we give credit for.

Saudis have been doing this for decades. The following Mrage5's in France, before delivery. They were never inducted into RSAF.
