WASHINGTON – As Iran shows rapid progress in developing its military
and defense industries, there is increasing interest in Egypt for an
actual military alliance between Iran and Egypt, a development which
would change the balance of power in the region, according to a
report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
“The military alliance between Iran and Egypt will change the
strategic power balance in the region,” said Egyptian Gen. Tala’t
Moslem, who also stressed that such an alliance would block “the
expansionist policies of the Zionist regime,” referring to Israel.
Moslem particularly praised Iran’s indigenously made high technology
military equipment, including its production of stealth aircraft and
drones. He and other Egyptians also have been impressed with Iran’s
advancements in missile technology and production of home-made
fighter jets, the Saeqeh, or Thunderbolt, and Azarakhsh, or Lightning.
Some of the missiles include medium and long-range delivery systems,
such as the Sejjil and the Shahab series of missiles, as well as the
Qadr, Sahab and Zelzal.
In addition, the Iranian army recently displayed an upgraded version
of the Zolfaqar battle tank. It is a second generation of Iran’s main
Iran began in earnest to develop its own indigenous arms program
during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war following the U.S. arms embargo
that ultimately shifted U.S. support to Iraq.
Since 1992, Iran has produced its own tanks, armored personnel
carriers, tactical and strategic missiles, helicopters, drones and
fighter aircraft and is now producing its own surface vessels and
submarines. (© 2012 WorldNetDaily.com, Inc. 04/14/12)
