BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Russian media recently reported on Egypt’s acquisition of the Russian-made Su-35 jet, which they are expected to take hold of in the near future.

Although this deal aroused great resentment on the American side, and despite Washington’s pressure on Cairo, Egypt was determined to possess these fighters because it has a great deal of power that would represent a strong leap for the Egyptian Air Force.

It is known that these fighters are the most powerful interceptor fighter known to date, and were specially designed to control the airspace and prevent other fighters from being in the sky, but the distinctive feature of these fighters is that they possess a super missile that has no counterpart yet.

This fighter possesses the winged missile “Kh-59MK2”, which is a tactical missile for fixed targets with a range of 550 km for the Russian version, and less than 300 km for the export version, equipped with a warhead weighing 700 kg, with a speed of 1000 km per hour.

These missiles are anti-target ground guided by inertia and then the active radar with an electro-optical system to identify the target and increase the accuracy of the hit with an error rate of 3 – 5 meters.

These missiles possess a highly destructive super warhead, and they are fired from at a flying speed of 550-1100 km/hr max.

The Su-35 is vastly superior to the overpriced over-hyped F-35. Su-35 top speed: 2,778 km/h, vs 1931 km/h for the F-35. The Su35 also has a significantly longer range of operation and needs no afterburner to reach top speed. A main drawback of the F.35 is the need for the afterburner, which renders the plane visible to radar. Besides that, the F-35 is fully visible at any speed to the latest Russian radar. Egypt could play a key role in the Libyan conflict.
