EDEX 2018: Egypt close to IOMAX Archangel deal

6th December 2018 - 06:00 GMT | by Alan Warnes in Cairo


US based IOMAX has confirmed it is currently in discussions with the Egyptian Air Force for a potential sale of 12 Archangel Border Patrol Aircraft (BPA). 

Under an FMS deal, the BPAs will be configured to a similar weapon configuration as the UAE Block 2 aircraft. Its weapons-cache includes: the GBU-12 laser guided Mk 82 bomb; GBU-58 laser guided Mk 81 bomb; AGM 114 Hellfires; and Roketsan Cirit 2.75in laser-guided rockets.

However, due to the challenging relations between Egypt and Turkey, the CIRIT will be replaced by the BAE Systems Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System  (APKWS) laser-guided rocket.
