The Egyptian Air Force has taken delivery of the final four of 20 Lockheed Martin F-16D Block 52 fighter jets purchased from the United States. The fleet was formerly operated by the U.S. Air Force (USAF).

The United States halted delivery of the combat aircraft, which were ordered in 2006, along with other key items under the USD1.3 billion annual United States military aid package to Egypt in July 2013.
