 Warplanes: Russian Gunship Flunks The Sand Test

January 2, 2019: Egypt has ordered another ten American AH-64s helicopter gunships. These will be the E model. At the end of 2014, the U.S. delivered ten AH-64D Egypt had ordered in 2009. The United States had held up such deliveries of military equipment because the Egyptian Army replaced the elected president of Egypt in mid-2013. The former president was sympathetic to Islamic radicals and after the coup, the Islamic terrorists in Egypt went on a rampage. The 35 AH-64Ds Egypt already had in 2013 proved very useful in dealing with the Islamic terrorists. So the U.S. is, out of mutual interest, allowed the ten AH-64Ds Egypt had on order to be delivered. Egypt had first ordered 24 AH-64As in 1994 and by 2000 had 36 of them. One was subsequently lost but the rest were upgraded to the “D” standard between 2003 and 2007.
