The next-generation combat aircraft is designed to destroy tanks, armored and non-armored ground targets as well as enemy troops.

The newspaper wrote that Ka-52 Alligator aircraft are already "biting" in Syria, where they successfully passed their first efficiency test in real combat conditions.

Egypt is continuing to increase its military capabilities to fight against illegal armed groups and terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula, Libya and Yemen, the newspaper wrote. For this purpose, Russian made helicopters will be very useful, "particularly combined with the French helicopter carriers."

The newspaper reminded that in 2015 Cairo had already purchased 24 French-made Rafale fighter jets, two Mistral class helicopter carriers as well as two German type 209 submarines.
