Belgian Armed Forces.

One of the worlds oldest Air Forces

Played a critical role in WW1 at the Battle of Liège, the Capture of Tabora

Conqured the Congo

Were key allies in the Korean War.

With countless victories over its history, why doesnt Belgium get talked about more here?

      It's a made up buffer state that exists for the sole purpose of pissing off the Frankophiles, the Dutch, and the Germans all at once. They do make nice rifles and pool tables though I'll give em that.

      We can take on Luxemburg, probably, but that's about it.

      If you need some small & short scale special operations/air patrol/demining done, we can probably do that. Our field kitchens aren't too bad either.

      Anything beyond that, sorry, no money due to socialist cucks. Pretty on-par for a small Euro country.

          Worse in every way I'd say. Dutch military is underfunded but not as bad as the Belgians. Also the Belgians are good in small arms manufacture but the Dutch are a top 10 global arms supplier, they just make the bigger stuff (Ships, electronics and components)

            Yeah, not like 5th SAS and the squadron of hurricanes did anything, amiright?
            The army regulars were kept out of the fight for a long time specifically due to British strategic concerns. They wanted to ensure that the Belgian troops were not severely depleted by the time the fighting got to Belgium, because they wanted belgian troops to help there, but especially to keep control after conquering the country.

                They were the first to ditch the 8 standard .303s and installed 4 .50cals instead.
                Dieudonné Saive (you know, the guy who designed the SAFN, the FN FAL and the Browning Highpower) spent his time tweaking machinegun design to raise the rate of fire for aerial use.

      they where some ministers special little brianfart idea off copying the brits school cadets system to get more recruits.
      They where only set up a couple of months before but he wanted them in the parade to push his new scheme.
      As it turns out taking a few random teens that never marched before and shoving them into your national parade doesn't work out. (it only take a couple hours to get a decent result really). It also didn't help that porky the officer was drunk.
      Still better than a US company on parade tough.

    Can any Belgian vets give me a QRD on your squad/platoon organization?

    I'm trying to make some Belgian Army missions (both regular infantry and Paracommandos) from 1985-2010 for my ArmA III community but I have no idea how they were organized at the unit level historically. Right now for Paracommandos, I just have a standard US Army squad (squad leader + two fireteams with a team leader, grenadier, automatic rifleman, and standard rifleman) and for regular infantry infantry a standard UK Army section (Section leader, second-in-command, machine gunner and assistant + 4 rifleman) as placeholders

          I can share some of his 'fun facts' though

          >Iltis jeeps become dangerously unstable above 100 km/h
          In the meantime, this site somewhat matches what little I personally know, like how during the 90's the para's were an independent branch with their own logstics, medical, etc

      from what I can remember from my grandfathers tales they (infantry) where organized in the British fashion. But that was in Korea and they where part off a larger British unit over there.
      "fun" fact about the belgian contingent that went to Korea, the first man died in a training accident back in belgium slipping from a rope across a dry moat.
      My other grandfather was very familiar with German and soviet squad organizations if you catch my drift.
      But my Father who'd be more relevant to your question period wise. Spent his national service at a officers bar mixing wienertails.
      You could ask the para's tough I'm fairly certain they'd get back to you if asked politely.
