Russia and Egypt continue talks on Mistral-class LHD Weapons and Systems
Russia and Egypt continue negotiations on supplies of communications equipment and helicopters for Mistral-class LHDs. So far no contract has been inked, Russian presidential aide for military-technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin told TASS.
The Project 22350 lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov is planned to be delivered to Russia’s Navy in November 2016, Chief of the Russian Armed Forces’ Armament Department Lieutenant-General Anatoly Gulyayev said on the single military hardware acceptance day.

"There are no contracts so far, talks are ongoing," he said. He added Egypt plans to buy both helicopters and radio-electronic equipment. "They want it in a complex," Kozhin said.

Moscow and Cairo are currently discussing supplies of communication and control systems for Mistral. A contract for Ka-52K helicopters is not ruled out. It is a carrier-based modification of Ka-52 designed specifically for such universal landing warships.

A representative of the United Shipbuilding Corporation told TASS Russian-made communication and control equipment is ready for shipment to Egypt and can be supplied in a short time if a corresponding contract is signed. It includes communication and control systems which ensure warship interaction with coastal infrastructure, command posts and landing ships.
