 Russia and Egypt did not sign a contract to supply Russian Kamov Ka-52 Alligator combat helicopters at the MAKS-2015 International Air Show, the director-general of the Rosoboronexport agency dealing with exports and imports of defense-related products told TASS on Friday.

"There was nothing of the kind, at least at this exhibition," Anatoly Isaikin said answering a question on the issue.

A military-diplomatic source earlier told TASS that Egypt had ordered Russian Ka-52 combat helicopters, without providing further details.

The Ka-52 Alligator is a next-generation reconnaissance and combat helicopter designed to destroy tanks, armored and non-armored ground targets, and enemy troops and helicopters both on the front line and in tactical reserves. It’s a two-seat modification of the Ka-50 Black Shark, a single-seat Russian attack helicopter designed in the 1980s and adopted for service in the Russian army in 1995.
