According to the source, Egypt is planning to submit a request for certain items of radio electronic equipment at the next round of talks with Rosoboronexport that may be held in April-May. TASS does not have comments from Rosoboronexport.

It was reported earlier that Russia and Egypt were discussing the delivery of Russian-made communications and control systems for the Mistral-class helicopter carriers. It was reported in late February that a final decision had not been taken yet.

Russia may also deliver the Kamov Ka-52K shipborne version of the Ka-52 Alligator (NATO reporting name: Hokum-B) helicopter to Egypt. The Ka-52K helicopter has been specifically developed for the Mistral-class ships.

According to Russian presidential Chief of Staff Sergei Ivanov, Egypt may purchase Russian-made helicopters and equipment designed for the Mistral-class ships for more than one billion dollars.
