Egypt has announced that it purchased 50,000 9mm CZ P-07 Duty, “several hundred” 9mm Scorpion EVO III submachine guns and an unspecified number of CZ 805 BREN A1 assault rifles from Ceska Zbrojovka (CZ) for an undisclosed sum.

Interestingly, just today I was emailed the above photo which shows two Sudanese policemen training at the Egyptian Police Academy. They are armed with the Scorpion EVO and at least the one on the right looks to have a CZ P-07 Duty strapped to his leg, making me think Egypt started getting these guns a while back but decided to hold back announcing the acquisition.

Many thanks to Ahmad for the photo and Albi for tip.
