Egyp­tian Rafales

Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - World Aviation & Defence News -

Egypt’s in­ten­tion to ac­quire an­other 12 Rafales from Das­sault seems to have been de­layed over is­sues on the sup­ply of com­po­nents for the Scalp cruise mis­siles Egypt wants to ac­quire. Egypt has wanted its Rafales to be armed with Mica air-to-air mis­siles, Scalp cruise mis­siles and AASM Ham­mer guided mis­siles, but there are is­sues with some US-com­po­nents in the sys­tems. Mean­while, half of the 24 Rafales Egypt or­dered in Fe­bru­ary 2015 have been de­liv­ered with more ex­pected this year.
