Egypt is one of the largest spenders in the defence sector in the Muslim world.

They have only two theoretical adversaries in the region: (1) Israel and (2) Turkey.

They have a peace treaty with Israel, and they don't have any historical animosity with Turkey. Their geographic location is also not very complex.

So, why do they spend so much on defense?
