    16 out of 24 Rafale will be twin seater.
    -
    I guess the Rafale in the EAF will be mainly used for attacks against ground targets.

    EAF F16s have BVR capabilities as they are equipped with the AIM-7M/P,but the US refused to sell them AIM-120s.
    There are also rumours that in the future,Egypt could acquire the METEOR.

    Egypt OKs Plan for €3B Military Gear Loan From France

    635729957375789337-Rafale-Egyptian-afp.jpg


    ABORONE, Botswana — The Egyptian parliament has approved government plans to secure a €3.37 billion (US $3.76 billion) loan to fund the acquisition of weapons and military equipment, including Navy vessels and fighter jets, as part of the country's ongoing force modernization program, a new parliamentary report has said.

    According to a recent weekly report of parliamentary proceedings, the Egyptian Ministry of Defense approached parliament early this year seeking approval for a defense loan to be advanced by a group of French banks led by Credit Agricole for Companies and Investment. The military hardware will be supplied by several French defense equipment manufacturers.

    Egypt to receive President-S countermeasures systems from Russia

    Egypt will in the coming weeks take delivery of President-S countermeasures suites from Russia’s KRET Enterprise. Egypt’s order was confirmed in January.

    The President-S is an export version of the L370 Vitebsk system, developed by KRET's Scientific-Research Institute Ekran division and fitted to some Russian air force helicopters and transport aircraft. It is designed to protect aircraft from air-launched and air defence missiles. It uses directed energy as well as countermeasures dispensers to disrupt the optical seekers of missiles.

    According to KRET, the system has been successfully tested against Igla man-portable air defence systems (MANPADS) and has even defeated two simultaneously launched missiles.

    http://www.defenceweb.co.za/index.p...tems-from-russia-&catid=7:Industry&Itemid=116

    Comprehensive protection is provided by:

    – Optical-electronic interference stations that protect the helicopter by forming a directed interference at the infrared seeker.

    – UV detector for detecting and transmitting the location of air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles as soon as they are launched

    – Equipment for the detection of laser irradiation and locating the coordinates of its location

    -Control unit, which provides integrated control and information processing and controls all elements of the system simultaneously.

    – Multi-panel display and a system that distinguishes false targets.

    -A flare-dispensing system
