France: Military Armour Capability found to be ‘Non-Existent’


France had problems with armored forces.

The reports of the French Ministry of Defense made it possible to establish that the French army is armed with only a little more than 220 tanks, which is almost 17 times less than in service with Russia. Moreover, judging by a number of French sources, several dozen heavy combat vehicles are simply unsuitable for combat, which makes France perhaps the weakest among the NATO countries in this regard.

Previously, French threats directed at Russia regarding the introduction of NATO forces into the Donbass turned out to be completely unfounded, since there are very few such weapons even for France’s own needs.

“Any threats of France to send its troops to the Donbass or to demonstrate force to Russia turned out to be completely empty. The same Poland is armed with many more tanks, which indicates that the military potential of this country, which is a member of NATO, is at an extremely low level., – notes the specialist

A few days earlier, it became known that Russia had transferred three tank regiments to the border with Ukraine, which already almost exceeds the number of combat-ready tanks in all of France.

Judging by the data of the French Ministry of Defense, in the rest of the armament, the country is also colossally behind Russia, and perhaps the only exception is the superiority of France in the number of unmanned aerial vehicles in service, however, and this is highly debatable, since the vast majority of drones are miniature aircraft

  1. This is really unimportant, because unless some Ukrainian (or other) idiot does something silly, like trying to “Liberate” Donbas; there is going to be no war in Europe. The reason is simple, the Russians do not want a war and though some US politicians do, the people who would have to do the fighting know that if it “gets kinetic” they are going to lose. No general goes into a war expecting to lose.
    My bet is that if the Russians get fed up waiting for NATO infrastructure to move away from their borders, any military action on their part will be like their actions in Georgia in 2008, quick in, destroy the facilities and quick out. (“There! Stick that in yer pipe and smoke it!”)

  2. The same i can say about Germany.
    Make love, not war, European “partners”!
