CAIRO, February 28. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday he hopes Russian exports of military hardware to Egypt will be expanded to include Ka-52 Alligator helicopters.
"I spoke today with the [Egyptian] defense minister and saw a picture featuring your soldiers with Kalashnikov guns in their hands. Russian weapons are well known in your country and I hope after our talks more serious weapons will appear of these pictures and I hope the Russian Alligator will turn into a Nilotic crocodile," Rogozin said during a meeting with Egyptian Minister of Military Production Mohamed El-Assar.
"It is very important for us to hold comprehensive talks with the country’s political leaders," the Russian deputy prime minister stressed.
"Our countries are conducting friendly policies towards each other. We discuss both the Middle East problems and the Syrian settlement. But what is most important we discuss military technical cooperation," he said.
El-Assar, in turn, expressed the hope the Russian delegation’s talks with Defense Minister Sidqi Sobhy were crowned by an agreement on areas of joint work.
The Ka-52 Alligator is an all-weather attack helicopter of the new generation. It can destroy armored and unarmored ground targets, low-speed aerial targets and personnel at the frontline and in tactical depth.
