Egypt reportedly to buy 46 MiG-29s
The deal is expected to be signed in "the nearest future", according to two sources in the Russian aviation industry.
Neither the Russian state arms export agency Rosoboronexport nor RSK MiG, the aircraft's manufacturer, would comment on the deal.
There have been reports that Egypt was looking to buy the MiG-29 or the more advanced MiG-35 version since November 2013.
A MiG-29 contract would come after it was announced in February that Egypt would buy 24 Dassault Rafale multirole fighters.
