Egypt Receives Fourth Batch of Rafale Fighters from France

Egypt has received on Wednesday two Dassault Aviation-built Rafale fighter jets from France, announced Egypt’s Armed Forces spokesman.

The fourth batch that Egypt has just received sums up the total jets to 11.

The first three jets were delivered in July 2015, the second batch arrived in January 2016, while the third batch was delivered in April.

Army Spokesman Tamer Mahmoud said in an online statement that “the new Rafale aircraft are a powerful addition to the capabilities of our air forces, as they possess high-level technical characteristics and combat systems, enabling them to perform long-range tasks.”

In February 2015, France and Egypt have signed a 5 billion euro deal whereby the former agreed to deliver about 24 Rafale fighters to Egypt amid the framework of the Egyptian-French armament cooperation.
