In My thinking, bombing the dam can only happen in the construction stages, after the dam has been filled to some point, bombing the dam to release the waters would be akin to sentencing to death million of residents in Khartoum and other settlements along the banks from the floods that this would occasion. In which case i do not see Sudan agreeing to such a plan.We still don't know if they have the additional fuel tanks and if they have enough of them - because you will lose all three of these additional fuel tanks during a single flight.
Second, if they are really bombing the dam: would Sudan grant overflight rights of dozens of figher jet missions - and why? Sudans own irrigation plans would see an enormous boost with the GERD (which again would reduce the amount of water for Egypt). The Roseires dam was considered to buffer the large flows of the Abay to prevent Khartoum being flooded but the Roseires dam saw a lot of silting and sedimentation and cannot do this as required anymore. So the GERD would protect Khartoum from large floods. It is not in their national interest to allow Egypt overflight rights. They have quite a few fighter jets and they have it in response to Egypts air force. To name a few: Sukhoi Su-35, MiG-29, ... if Egypt would really try to bomb the GERD they would have to kill off Sudan's airforce first - which would result in a war between these two countries. And a hotspot of the fights would be the Aswan High Dam which strategically is Egypts weakest spot.
The only scenario imaginable would be that the Sudan provides overflight rights. But how would Egypt do that?
