Egypt, France, and Rafale deal

Egypt and France have signed a contract for the procurement of 30 more Rafale fighter jets from Dassault Aviation in favor of the Egyptian Air Force (EAF).

Egypt had reportedly insisted on the delivery of MBDA’s Meteor beyond-visual-range air-to-air missiles (BVRAAM) with the Rafale fighters.

Will Egypt receive Meteor missiles with the delivery of the Rafale fighters?

Does the Rafale deal include maintenance and training services?

Tactical Report has prepared a 375-word report to shed more light on this subject.
