Egypt Purchases $81 Million Worth of Missile Warning Systems from The US

Egyptian Air Force's helicopter fleet scores some sick new toys.

Egypt will be receiving $81 million worth of missile warning systems from the United States, according to Al Bawaba. 

The US State Department has approved the sale which includes warning systems for the AH-64E Apache, UH-60 Blackhawk, CH-47 Chinook helicopters, 67 AN/AAR-57 common missile warning systems, as well as "installation and integration, installation mounting kits, countermeasure dispenser test sets, technical assistance, U.S. government training and contractor training, publications and technical documents, quality assurance and other related logistics and program support elements."

The missile warning systems will supposedly enable Egypt's air force helicopter fleet to detect "infrared missile threats."
