Egypt has shown interest in procuring radio and electronic equipment from Russia for its Navy’s mistral class helicopter carrier.
Serious progress has been made in talks between Russia and Egypt on the preparation and delivery of radio and electronic equipment for the carriers purchased by Egypt after France refused to deliver the carriers to Moscow, a spokesman from Rostec’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation was quoted as saying by Sputnik Monday.
"Negotiations are continuing with Egypt on the delivery of radio-electronic equipment for the Mistral helicopter carriers. It’s already completely clear that the equipment stripped from the Mistral that was meant for the Russian Navy will not be delivered to Egypt…The possibility of preparing a different set of equipment especially for Egypt is currently under discussion," he said.
He said that it was premature to talk about the results of the negotiations, but said the Egyptian side "is showing great interest."
Russia and Egypt had set consultations on the purchase and management of a $1 billion worth communication system and Ka-52K helicopters for Mistral-type warships in November last year.
“They have expressed a desire to acquire Russian equipment, including helicopters,” Kremlin chief of staff Sergei Ivanov a high-ranking official in the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) had said.
Egypt emerged as France’s replacement customer for the Mistrals in September, following the Paris and Moscow’s termination of a 2011 deal on construction and delivery of the two ships.
In November 2014, France had suspended the contract, citing Moscow's alleged participation in the Ukrainian conflict as a reason to terminate the deal.
Russia will deliver 46 Kamov Ka-52K attack helicopters for the Egyptian Navys mistral carriers. Ka-52Ks were designed for French-made Mistral helicopter carriers that were to join the Russian Navy last year, before France cancelled the deal over Ukraine

A Russian delegation has left for Egypt to negotiate delivering communications and control equipment for the Mistal-class helicopter carriers France sold to Cairo after it cancelled their sale to Moscow. "Negotiations continue, the Russian delegation has left for Egypt to discuss with the Egyptian side the parameters of the potential deal with the available technical proposals on the communications and control equipment,"
Russian equipment is likely to be made available for Egypts Mistral-class helicopter carriers delivered by France. "It is likely that since the deal [on the Mistral delivery] between Egypt and France has been signed and the warship delivery is ongoing, with one [warship] already there and the other one arriving a little bit later, the decision [on the supply of Russian equipment] will be made, the equipment must work," Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General Igor Sevastyanov was quoted as saying by
