Egypt received on Tuesday the third batch of Rafale fighters from France after the completion of aviation tests on them in France last week.

The batch that comprises three warplanes makes the sum of Rafale that Egypt has received so far from France nine jet fighters, in a deal that is worth €5.2 billion.

In February 2015, France and Egypt have signed the deal whereby the former agreed to deliver about 24 Rafale fighters to Egypt amid the framework of the Egyptian-French armament cooperation.

The French company Dassault Aviation, the manufacturer of the Rafale fighters, disclosed in March in a press conference its plan for financial year 2017/2018, which includes handing Egypt eight Rafale fighters this year.

In December 2016, Egypt ranked first among the developing nations that import arms according to a U.S. congressional report.
