Egypt President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s visit to New Delhi next week is expected to give a boost to Indian-Egypt ties in the defence sector as both countries are keen to expand their collaboration in the interaction between armed forces but also the sale of Indian-made weapon systems.
According to WION, Egypt has shown interest in Indian-made Akash Mk1 and NG Air Defence systems and is also looking at DRDO’s Smart Anti-Airfield Weapon (SAAW) for its Air force.
Last week, Tactical Report claimed that Egypt is interested in India’s Pralay Tactical Ballistic Missile and is looking to locally produce this missile in the country under Transfer of Technology (ToT) agreements between Indian DRDO and Egyptian MoMP.
India’s State-owned HAL had offered its LCA-Tejas Trainer as a Replacement for its Chinese JL-8 which it plans to replace to provide training to its pilots but reports indicate that Egypt has decided to procure Korean T-50 Trainer aircraft with ToT for local production.
