Why are they like this?

>For example, Egypt’s F-16 fleet is perhaps the most ineffective F-16 force worldwide. Despite upgrading the fleet to Block 40 and 52 standards, the United States has long denied Egypt air-to-air missiles with a range greater than 85 km, restricting Egypt’s arsenal to the AIM-7 Sparrow and 35 km shorter ranged AIM-9 Sidewinders.
>a major stumbling block. The Sparrow is a Cold War relic that requires the operator to remain locked-on to the target to score a hit. On the other hand, numerous other U.S. clients in the region—including Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Jordan, Oman, and Turkey—operate the superior active radar AIM-120 AMRAAM. This system'sfire-and-forget capability allows the operator to maneuver freely after launch and possesses a publicized range that exceeds that of the AIM-7 Sparrow by an additional 20 km. The air-to-air missile restrictions have put Egypt’s entire F-16 fleet at an overwhelming disadvantage should it engage in aerial combat with any air force in the region armed with BVR missiles. This significant tactical disadvantage likewise reinforces Egypt’s principal weakness in past wars: its ineffective air power
>Furthermore, the United States has long denied Egypt advanced heavy air superiority fighters, which has restricted the range and capability of the Egyptian Air Force.
>by pushing for an F-15 fighter deal, but while the United States has approved sale of these systems to Saudi Arabia and Qatar, all of Egypt’s requests have been rejected. In 2018, Donald Trump made a verbal commitment to sell Egypt 20 F-35 fighter jets, but once again, a dealnever materialized due to the opposition of the Defense Department and rumored Israeli pressure
>Nor have these restrictions been limited to U.S.hardware. When Egypt requested the French Rafale, the United States and Israel applied pressure on France to downgrade the air-to-air missile available to Egypt to the 80 km MICA missile instead of the 100 km Meteor missile

      I don't believe it's even this but US being too afraid Egypt has put itself into an economically unsustainable situation where a collapse would mean all these weapons suddenly appearing in the wrong hands.

      Want better shit? Fix yourself up.

      Israel already has the latest generation fighters so their qualitative military edge is more than maintained

      What is the point of insisting egypt gets the most inferior fleet of 4th generations and short range missiles? Isn't it a bit over the top?

    Didn't Egypt's government almost have a total collapse like the rest of the MENA states 13 years ago? Doesn't Egpyt have a nasty habit of regime changes in the last century? Yeah. That might be the real answer to your question and has little to do with the penis snippers to the North.

    I like Egypt. It’s like, super raw unfiltered reality — there’s no Muslim or muh peoples, no culture none of that shit, it’s just getting dollars, keeping dollars and being friends with those who can get you dollars. If you don’t want to be peasant losers go move to the capital and be a chad winner. Pretty based, I’d move there.
