Egypt receives 930 US surplus MRAPS and orders 1,000 more

After receiving 930 MRAP armored transport vehicles from the US Army surplus, Egypt is about to order a thousand vehicles from the same source.

That’s what the official sources of the US military said on July 19th. The last batch of 101 wheeled armored vehicles of the BAE Systems RG-33L series, arrived at the port of Alexandria in Egypt this week. This shipment closes the delivery of the 930 MRAP vehicles of various types, offered to the Egyptian army as part of the EDA.

In total, six types of MRAPs have been received by Egyptians since 2015, 530 from the RG-33L series and 400 M1220 / 1230 Caiman.

On July 20, 2019, it was announced that the Egyptian government is applying for 1000 additional armored wheeled vehicles of the MRAP class (presumably of the same type) in EDA. 700 machines have already been selected and prepared for delivery. According to the Russian website BMPD, delivery is expected to begin on November 2019.
