What has Egypt done for us?
What has Egypt done except trample the Camp David Accords in the dust and allow jihad and blood to be preached against Israel and America?
ST. LOUIS — Boeing has signed a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) agreement with the U.S. Army to deliver Avenger short-range air defense fire units to Egypt. The $50 million contract includes associated spares and logistics support.
The Avenger is the U.S. Army’s mobile, shoot-on-the-move, short-range air defense system. Armed with Stinger missiles and a 50-caliber machine gun, Avenger provides effective tactical defense and convoy protection against helicopters, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.
“Avenger is a lethal forward-area air defense system with proven capabilities deployed worldwide,” said Debra Rub-Zenko, vice president and program director for Boeing Integrated Missile Defense. “Through the cooperative efforts of the U.S. Army, Boeing is pleased to once again provide the Egyptian air defenders with increased Avenger force protection for their nation.”
The new contract calls for Boeing to deliver the Avengers by September 2008.
