DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:20 P.M.) – Egyptian fighter jets landed for the first time at the Hama Military Airport this week, the Lebanon-based As-Safir newspaper reported on Wednesday morning.

As-Safir claims that these Egyptian fighter jets will participate in the ongoing military operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), while also providing logistical support to the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF).

Al-Masdar contacted the Syrian Air Force to corroborate this report by As-Safir; however, no response has been received yet to verify the validity of this claim.

Last month, several Egyptian military advisors traveled from Cairo to the Port of Tartous in order to participate in a training session with their Russian counterparts at the T-4 Airport in east Homs.

Funny fact, I’m French, so is Françoise and we don’t look pissed-off at all. Personnally, most of the people I know consider we should closely work with Russia and Syria to eradicate Qaeda and Daesh. I’m not really sure about how the govt sees things : they seem supportive to the so-called “rebels” but stopped any help to FSA as soon that Sarkozy was ousted from his prez job. Only the Kurds are backed. In fact, yu can even see many public sayings as double-talk and considering oil company Total just signed a huge gas contract with Iran and EU… Read more »

I knew ‘stealth’ was almost certainly useless against Russian ground-based low-band radar, but you’re indicating it doesn’t even do much against capable aircraft mounted systems as well. f*****g pathetic. The US military-industrial complex can’t even deliver a working weapon anymore…

There are several ways to deliver stealthness. The passive one with special geometry and RAM coatings works well but on X-band and partly on S-band. Most of aircraft radars are on X-band. Now, the goal is also not to be invisible but to reduce the radar signature or size. i.e. on X-band, F-22 is the size of a tennis ball, Rafale the size of a seagull, so you get detected but later than without the passive stealth. Now, if you radar, as a 1943 brit one, works on much lower frequencies, passive stealth is void, but such radars are huge.… Read more »

Agree Rafale is as lethal as they come. Hope the gyptians go and help Syria, that would be something.

Is this a real photo or just a Photoshop? If real, so beautiful.
