The Egyptian Air Force has taken delivery of all the MiG-29 fighters it ordered from Russia, and started to receive its first Russian Sukhoi Su-35 fighters. Russian magazine New Defence, quoting industry sources in Russia, reported that five Su-35s were delivered to Egypt, and that satellite imagery shows 12 Su-35s outside the Gagarin Aircraft Plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, ready to be delivered to the Egyptian Air Force. 

Sweden's Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reported that Egypt ordered 24 Su-35s that will be delivered by 2023. The Su-35 is an evolution of the Sukhoi Su-27 equipped with new avionics, including the Irbis radar with a range of 400km, and a more powerful engine. The new fighters will supplement Egypt's MiG-29M/M2 fighters as well as replace older fighters.  

Egypt also received 300 R-73 and 300 R-77 beyond visual range air-to-air missiles for its MiG-29 fighters.
