Have you been keeping up with Egyptian arms purchases?  Either they're about to go to war, have visions of being the Middle Eastern Superpower or both.

Regardless the variety of gear that they're purchasing will be a logistical nightmare.  I even have to wonder how nicely it all fits together on the tactical level.  The mix of gear reminds me of the Iraqi armed forces before the Gulf War.
