        Unfortunately the rule of French Vehicle Design is that the more aesthetic the vehicle, the more devilishly vile the maintenance is.

        Wouldn't be surprised if you had to take the turret off to change the tyre because the stabiliser is locked to the wheels, which also means you have to drain the oil and and the fuel tank because that has to come off too.

        Ukraine cannot afford to have to support multiple jet fighter-bomber types.

        Remember in addition to training pilots on the aircraft those planes require constant maintenance and so Ukraine will have to have a bunch of techs to service them in addition to spare parts.

        So, Ukraine can probably only deal with 1 new fighter type in the next year. Ideally it would've been Gripen because they were designed for exactly the type of fight Ukraine is in, but it seems like it's going to be F-16.

          The simple fact that speedy vehicles that can deploy, and under Uke doctrine use indirect fire to attack trenches in support of a main counter offensive group would be extremely fricking useful explains why the shills shit so hard on the French vehicles.

    VABs and AMX-10 RCs for sure, we have thousands and hundreds of them (respectively) who are scheduled for decommissionig in the coming years. Maybe Mirages, as they are also being retired and we have dozens of them, if not hundreds of them.
    Not sure about AMX-30 Brenus, Tr F1 canons (we sent some, but not a lot, not sure why) and AuF1 self-propelled guns. As for CAESARs, we are producing dozens of brand new ones specifically for Ukraine.
    There are also the MO-120 RT mortars, but i don't know if they're being decommissioned right now, as we have sent only a handful until now

      It's not just face-saving on his part. Wagner is fricking over France's neo-colonies in Africa, which still give a lot of money and resources to France including uranium, which they need since like 60% of their power generation is nuclear. If Russia can take over France's african holdings and maybe invade or annex Kazakhstan (which is one of the world's biggest suppliers of uranium), then it's lights out for France. There's also the question of the leadership vacuum in Europe now that the bongs and Americans are self-sabotaging. The French love being the leader in everything and any chance to one-up Germany is great for them.

        France has already solved the uranium issue. They simply made deals with Kazakhstan and Mongolia. More than that, France out of Africa actually saves them a shitload of money and army materiel and personnel. France was buying uranium from its ex-colonies at a premium above market price as a sign of goodwill and support (look it up). In other words youtube videos about France = bad or Franceafrique are already outdated because France just took the opportunity to cut off that deadweight in a way that saves them face oddly enough. While that happened France signed agreements with Armenia and Moldova over defense, meaning that both are now in the French sphere and France guarantees their security. Above all that France and India signed amjor deals about technology sharing and trade, and just a day or two ago their relationship with Brazil (the subs) has been confirmed and reaffirmed etc.

        France is in a much, much stronger position NOW than it was when everything was "fine" and they were still in the Sahel. Oh, and they successfully tested that ICBM just a month or two ago. France isn't declining, it's actually becoming more powerful, influential and has found allies everywhere. Africa was unironically holding them back.

                As I understand it, French aid has been intentionally understated by the French government, meaning they've given more than it appears. Plus if this news that they're gonna give all the stuff they're planning to decommission to Ukraine is true, that would be a significant escalation. I agree it's unlikely we'll see French boots on the ground anytime soon, though, unless the ruskies somehow manage to take a lot more ground a lot faster.

                Threatening to send troops in Ukraine is the only logical way to threaten/keep Russia uneasy. Even if it's bluff.

                "we need to defend ourselves, let's become entirely dependent militarily on the US who only consider us as pawn"

                But when it come to France, Germany go full rival.
                "No we will not cooperate as equal to create a stronger European army! I'll reject every mutually profitable deal, I want to scam you then keep selling my country bit by bit"

                And Russia's instantaneous response was that a country attacking Russia will itself be instantly attacked, with all means necessary, with appropriate notifications to other NATO members that their rogue member was making a rogue offensive attack, and was being dealt with, with no actions taken against non-rogues.

        No. That gauchiste meme need to fricking stop. Wealth trade with subsaharian shitholes is peanuts. Pic related. It's laughable, even. We probably exchange more fricking strawberries with Belgium and Luxembourg than everything that comes from African shitholes.
        And don't even get me started on Uranium, the mines always had poor yields. In fact, it did cost more to maintain them than to buy uranium directly key in hands from trusted partners such as Australia or Canada. The only reason to be there in those shitty African Uranium mines was to make sure local workers had fricking work, thus ensuring stability. It didn't work. They want Russian sperm. Now they have it. Fricking off Africa is the best decision Macron has ever made, Russian involvement being the perfect excuse to get away from that shithole without anyone in the West crying over, as it's now their problem.

                This is actually fake and just an accounting trick. Russians historically got mentally fricked due to soviet debts and shit, so they want to avoid that. So what do they do? They make their "national champions" (state-owned/oligarch managed) corporations take up the debt. It's not "russian government" who takes on the debt, it's "gazprom" who takes on debt, as well as rosneft, RZHD (russian railways), VEB and so on. Reality does come back to bite them sometimes though, like when the government has to use the "national wealth fund" money to bailout those "national champions" kek.

                The only way to be stronger would be to straight up affirm there's no longer a debt, look down your creditor, see them look down and agree that all that money was a gift so they'll rectify their own account to match.

    The pivot against Russia and going full Ukraine isn't just something trivial like "Macron wants to save face now lol" but a fully implemented and thought out strategy. France has played its cards shockingly well in this whole 50 year period. For instance whoever did the math and planned for France to go full nuclear made the right call and that was obviously decades in the making as a long term strategy for the whole country. This is their opportunity to muscle in on the international arms market, reinvigorate their status as a great power, take on a larger role in Europe and its security and so forth. France is perfectly poised to take the lead.

    Now, the Ukraine pivot did come about because of Macron's belief in Putin's honesty. BUT it's important to remember how shocking and nonsensical Russia's invasion was and is. My guess is the French made peaceful sounds assuming that Putin will strut around and then sit at the negotiating table with France being a mediator between them and Ukraine. Why France? Because it's not the US or China but it is a nuclear power, ergo a great power. The French tactic seems to have been that by staying uninvolved to a degree the Russians would see them as friendly and impartial. It would've strengthened France's diplomatic position in the world while adhering to the general EU strategy of not getting involved in other peoples squabbles. Germany seems paralyzed and unable to act but even that may be a ruse, but if it isn't that left France in a position to make that call. It was the right call to make BUT the problem was Russia and Putin are not rational actors, and now after exhausting all diplomatic options and goodwill France simply followed the next logical step - preventing Russian aggression in the future by helping stop it now. Unlike Russia's African adventures of dubious merit France's entry into Armenia and Moldova is right where it has to be - at Russia's doorstep and at the pathways of Central Asia which lead to China.

      Furthermore, France is right about Europe needing strategic sovereignty and a unified or more unified army and ability to sell weapons globally. This initiative Macron pushed and pushes has been utterly validated just as much as the Polish and Baltic insistence that Russia cannot be trusted. History validated both, so people in Europe are looking at French actions favorably.

      Amusingly Russia's old grift ("We're ushering in a multipolar world") which was just an excuse for Russian imperialism actually did just that - it gave rise to South Korea, Europe as a whole, France, Poland, Japan etc. None of that involves Russia however. Russia has no future, but I also anticipate US's influence and power to relatively diminish as other centers of power emerge. In essence the future is power between the US - EU - India - China - East Asia. India may or may not become significant in this, but other countries will also rise to global great power status even if they aren't a block like the EU or monolith like China. Think South Korea, Japan etc.

        When you're multipolar but that means Europe becomes a new pole instead of Russia.

        Anyways, the French have been crafty for years about forming new alliances. I've been reading a book about Saddam Hussein (as one does) and he was trying to create an independent Arab pole in the 1970s, nationalized the oil, and then began reaching out to the USSR for technical assistance, but hedged and balanced by banning the Iraqi Communist Party (which the gutless Soviets could only meekly complain about because they still wanted influence with Saddam), and then struck up a bunch of arms deals with France, which also assisted him with his civilian nuclear program (also Brazil). So the Iraqi army that invaded Iran a few years later had Mirage fighter jets. France was in a particular situation because it's a Western country that does its own thing, doesn't want to just follow Washington.

        The French also liked to stress back then that we left Lebanon after that Marine barracks was blown up but they stayed.

        De Gaulle did the nuclear thingy. The World War 2 débâcle and the Suez Crisis had the br*tishs and the french learn the exact opposite lesson :

        While the bong became american lapdogs and never kicked off anything without the americans accord. The french government decided that we needed to maintain our "strategic autonomy" by getting nukes. Hell our entire doctrine resides in the fact that yes you can wipe France but we will also bleed you like a fricking pig from our submarines or airplane (we abandonned ground launchers).

        I fully support Hollande (Macron predecssor) and Macron effort to try to negotiate with Putin, as you said invasion was nonsensical, because before 2022 he didn't do such thing and "only" had this locals donbas dudes (and Wagner) on a leash. That was the Normandy and Minsk accords aim with Russia Ukraine Germany and LA FRANCE. I also applaud our prezs for keeping and finally reinvigorating our civilan nuclear program it's highly productive (dare I say the most ecological energy for the waste/production ratio) and a local job boon. Hope we go far and the US don't hinder us too badly

        >I fully support Hollande (Macron predecssor) and Macron effort to try to negotiate with Putin
        Well, war between states involves a breakdown of diplomacy anyways, and this way you get it in the historical record. I listened to a recording of Macron talking to Putin and it raised my impression of the French president, he basically b***hed Putin out over the phone and called him a liar (diplomatically).

                Macron *is* cool. On an international leader level, he does have fricking "cool supervillain" energy, and even saying something completely fricking moronic doesn't change that. Now sure, you can criticise him for a whole list of things, mainly his handling of domestic policy (even the ones that weren't completely stupid on its base), and personal failings, but in terms of foreign and EU policy, he's had a good record. Keeping diplomacy open wasn't a failing, especially considering CAESARS were in Ukraine in March.
                And he's vain? He's a politician, ofc he's vain.

                Whatever else Macron is (a neo liberal banker with delusions of grandeure, a granny fetish and abject vanity to name a few), he is objectively a more sound head of state than either of those other two would be, and I have no idea who will succeed him from the sea of lukewarmness...

                Yeah, I recall this as well. At the time I laughed with them, now I must concede that the Steak Salesman was correct.

                As for the war as a whole, I think most of the kvetching about him making a deal with Putin is unnecessary. The man makes deals for a living, he wont sit down before he has leverage and when he does sit down Russia will have to make a lot of concessions to get Ukrainian clay. I unironically have begun to trust the Yellow Man more than I have most other world leaders. He's a lunatic but I think he is sincere.

                He didn't even have to understand why it was a problem, in his mind it was just "Germany should be buying from us, not from Russia".
                We are talking of the Trump who was ready to make the same kind of deal with China regarding agriculture, but it didn't go through since he lost the election.

        I was actually referring to your civilian nuclear program. THAT was a masterstroke of foresight and planning. Whatever committee or group charged with crunching the numbers and foreseeing the future did an excellent job that's only now paying full dividends. Since France went into nuclear power back in the 1970s bigtime my notion was that whoever planned this stuff out really knew their thing.

        Basically the only question worth asking now is HOW a unified EU army is supposed to look like etc. It's undeniable that we need to work together if we want to continue existing and being a factor in the world. Soft power has reached its limits and end with Russia's attack on Ukraine, we need to have a lot of steel on our side as well. The Americans are in the end only looking out for their own interests which are always against ours or detrimental to ours, and I consider them a bigger threat than the Chinese. In any case we need to rearm and be strong enough to parry both the US and China.

          Sadly during the 2000s this program has taken a major hit.

          I to say first than any "ecologists" should be flayed alive.

          Second it's been a while since we built new reactor, we have been counting on our older reactor like Bugey to hold for a few more decades. Before Flamanville (which has been a long shitshow thanks to european countries abandonning us) the last one we built was Civeau-2 in April 2003. My grandfather built one but not my father, so we have a generation that lost the experience to build reactors. Now Macron finally moved on ecology and ordered a slew of new reactor which is a good thing but it's gonna take a loooooooooong time

            And, as usual, you can thank Germany for that. They were fully involved in the design of the EPR, and made absurd security demands that make it a complete design nightmare. And once the design was approved, they just walked out of the project. Just like that. Yet another blatant example of Russian melding into Germany's politics to undermine the European Union and make it dependent on their tasty gas.

              As for the war as a whole, I think most of the kvetching about him making a deal with Putin is unnecessary. The man makes deals for a living, he wont sit down before he has leverage and when he does sit down Russia will have to make a lot of concessions to get Ukrainian clay. I unironically have begun to trust the Yellow Man more than I have most other world leaders. He's a lunatic but I think he is sincere.

      Furthermore, France is right about Europe needing strategic sovereignty and a unified or more unified army and ability to sell weapons globally. This initiative Macron pushed and pushes has been utterly validated just as much as the Polish and Baltic insistence that Russia cannot be trusted. History validated both, so people in Europe are looking at French actions favorably.

      Amusingly Russia's old grift ("We're ushering in a multipolar world") which was just an excuse for Russian imperialism actually did just that - it gave rise to South Korea, Europe as a whole, France, Poland, Japan etc. None of that involves Russia however. Russia has no future, but I also anticipate US's influence and power to relatively diminish as other centers of power emerge. In essence the future is power between the US - EU - India - China - East Asia. India may or may not become significant in this, but other countries will also rise to global great power status even if they aren't a block like the EU or monolith like China. Think South Korea, Japan etc.

      Another point related to this is that Russia decided to frick with France's African post-colonial game and they're passed about it. Wagner was involved in a few of these Sahel coups and is shouldering its way into the region, fomenting anti-French sentiment and sending in men and weapons. The French never actually got much from the Sahel: some Uranium (only 20%, most is Kazakhstan) and influence in the region. But the French are all about le honor and saving face and they're out for blood. Macron's had enough of their shit. This is an excellent opportunity to get back at Russia and assume the foremost leadership position in the post-Ukraine European military formation. Because unlike the Germs, they're actually militant.

      The joke is that you recognize a countries strength by how much debt they can "borrow" without anyone saying a word or refusing them more money.
      The only way to be stronger would be to straight up affirm there's no longer a debt, look down your creditor, see them look down and agree that all that money was a gift so they'll rectify their own account to match.

      Or you can do it the Russian way, fake the number everyone is looking at while keeping track of your debt through "private" companies under your control.

      The issue is that American debt is becoming problematic. All the money we raised via taxes this last year went to paying the interest, not funding the programs. This is unsustainable.

      So yes, while I agree that debt at 80 or 90% is not great but also not a massive problem, once you go past 100% and your interest payments start becoming problematic... no bueno.

      >What sort of retired armament does France possess?
      Not much and the current model of supplying Ukraine is stupid.

      A smarter model is to "adopt" formations. So, you take an existing Ukranian Brigade (or better a Brigade combat team) you ship them out to France for comprehensive training in Brigade maneuvers and you kit them out from head to toe in French gear, with French vehicles. Then you send them back to fight and France is responsible for maintaining the equipment of that formation (fixing and replacing) and training new batches of recruits.

      This way you could make meaningful impacts without actually noticing a decline in your stores. With each NATO state adopting formations they can sustain you can quickly end up with two to three exceptionally good divisions.

      This is the way, mostly. Units with cohesive equipment perform best. Of course that is contrasted by worse interoperability on higher echelons, but hey. One issue at a time.

      Unironically tho, I would find it hilarious if Ukraine got given some ASMP-A's and be told "Hey, the russians broke the Budapest memorandum deal, so you get to have nukes again. Have fun!"

      My main issue with the Germans right now is that they shifted once again towards the idea that they can make all their problems go away by just throwing money at them. Any time there is a discussion about what *insert non-german or american ally, especially the french* does, there is bound to be a couple of germans coming up immediately with that kiel institute graph, going "but but but germany gives the most support so you should shut up and listen to uuuuuuus"
      Shut the frick up you colossal morons, if it were up to you, Ukraine would have received 8000 helmets and 20k first aid kits as aid two months late.

        The worst part about their Kiel institute graph propaganda is, it actually shows the real numbers, but not on the default graph. You have to search on a sub-graph, showing the real numbers, as some countries decide to go through the EU common pot (Italy, France for example), while some other countries donate on their own (the UK, for obvious reasons, as it's not in the EU anymore).
        But of course, the default graph is not this one, it's the one that shows Germany big and France, Spain, Italy... as doing literally nothing. While the truth is quite different. Though let's be honest, Germany is indeed up there.

            I mean yeah but China is way worse than the US so it might be enough to convince EU to stick with the least crazy/cruel.

              It's not about losing their militaristic way, it's about them being cucks who'd sell their own ass or their own mother for a few bucks more. Who cares if you're undermined and corrupted by russia? Who cares if you sell out your neighbors and allies to a genocidal delusional empire which always historically did fricked up shit, including to you. You get to save a few bucks of natural gas. What do you mean it's more expensive than LNG from half the world away? But-but-but... gas pipelines, but-but-but long-term contracts?! How could this happen?!

          You say that, but at the same time, we (oui, ahah) have an army that's running some really high profile shit on a budget that's considered fricking shoestring. If we actually had 1200 Leclercs, AuF2, and basically the continuation of the cold war army structure, the bill would be much higher.

          Or we could have land war shit in the multiple hundreds of Leclercs and not have a nuclear navy on this budget. But somehow we're the only ones not moronic enough to belive in eternal peace, so we kept up a survivable deterrent and we can literally glass the russians if they try anything against even our most moronic ally. Which is good.

            I mean yeah but a lot of army generals today say we lack "épaisseur" (thickness). Am not saying we are on the moronic level of the germans or the bongs but we clearly did away with a lot of things like the obligatory military service under Chirac.

            I agree with you. They became buckbroken and greedy fricks. If Hitler didn't get cremated his rotating body would have been an infinite source of energy lol

              I do agree with you, and I do agree with them. Unfortunately, politicians trump most smart people in peacetime.

              The worst part about their Kiel institute graph propaganda is, it actually shows the real numbers, but not on the default graph. You have to search on a sub-graph, showing the real numbers, as some countries decide to go through the EU common pot (Italy, France for example), while some other countries donate on their own (the UK, for obvious reasons, as it's not in the EU anymore).
              But of course, the default graph is not this one, it's the one that shows Germany big and France, Spain, Italy... as doing literally nothing. While the truth is quite different. Though let's be honest, Germany is indeed up there.

              I'm not saying that the Germans are not doing well in terms of aid, I AM saying though that we shouldn't fricking expect them to set policy, policy goals or procurement. They are too indecisive for the first and covered in too much red tape for the second. Unironically, until they are faced with an actual existence-threatening situation where they have to cut through some bullshit, I do not trust the german MoD (even though Pistorius is A tier) or even the Bundeswehr.
              I have some faith in KMW and Rheinmetall (even though Rheinmetall is fricking shit up as much as they can because they are trying to squash KNDS in the bud), but only so far that they are allowed to bid on defense contracts and not hold up the show once a decision is reached.

        Finland still has facilities for these and quite a bit of production
        But there isn't enough capacity because nobody ordered shit for years

        Germany could be flooding Russia with tanks, but like the rest of Europe, we don't consider ourselves in a state of war.
        Hell, we don't honestly consider ourselves needing to apply strictly the sanctions. Else we would be selling nothing to Russia and acting against countries who don't apply sanction.

        We only have our inability to take hard decision to blame. The very same crowd who mock us for not producing more ammo, is 1:1 the crowd who will start burning city hall for redirecting wealth toward producing more ammo.

    Whatever Trump's keikaku is, I hope he realizes he'll be alone when it comes to China. Considering the political the shitshow happening right now, all it does is portray the US as an unreliable ally that is throwing Urkaine under the bus.
    So, yeah, the result will be "sure, go on against China, have fun. But we're not monsters, here are 5000 WWI helmets for Taiwan, and a shipment of bottle of water". I guess Japan will be there, at least. If only for the use of Okinawa.

      >Trump vs China
      Please, they bought him the second they accepted the "Trump" brand on their soil. He is incredibly egocentric.
      He was ready to make huge deal with them at the end of his mandate.
      Trump would even recognize their fake maritime frontier as long as they give him a DEAL(tm) that look amaaazing at home, knowing that if it don't look amazing, he'll lie to make it so.

      This is a guy who was raised on the idea that might make right, that's why he respect autocrat. He certainly believe that lies is how the world really work.
      He would never have to fight China because they know they can just pretend to fear him and edit propaganda to match, the biggest difficulty they'll have is not bursting into laughs signing deals with him.

      Remember that Trump is NOT a business man, he just INHERITED his father business, went several time bankrupt, was saved by government money and having people doing the work for him.
      He isn't in control because he is the best, he is in control because it would require to rob him or prove he is mentally unfit (and they've moved that bar too low for it to remain possible).

    >For the SAMP/T MAMBA system, France will also “release a new batch of Aster 30 missiles.” “MBDA owes us quick deliveries. This Friday, decrees were published (...) in terms of stock commitments, prioritisation of contracts and even requisitions.” — @SebLecornu
    >The 300 short-range Mistral surface-to-air missiles that were to be delivered in early 2025 will now be delivered in the summer of 2024. Instead of 2026 as originally planned, the 200 long-range Aster missiles will now be delivered in the second half of this year.
    Lookin' good
