      You can learn from knowledgeable people, without jokes and jokes, which mean nothing, what are the features of this complex? If 25 countries bought, then probably a good complex.

        The complex is not bad, judging by the declared characteristics. That's just the Iraqi army did not help against the Americans. Something didn’t work bully

    Georgia will buy the French air defense system "Mistral"
    It seems that the Ukrainian stocks have run out ....

      So there were no stocks. One Buk-M1 division for the whole country is very small, all the more so in 2008 only a certain number of launchers took part in the hostilities, and not the entire division. Now it seems that this division is completely absent. Well, 16 OSA-AKM air defense systems were also purchased from Ukraine. These are already obsolete and not even modernized, hell knows how much is working there, in any case, this is useless trash.

      Spyder-SR air defense missile systems - too little, military-technical cooperation with YizGayel turned off.

      As for the news, in France they bought not only Mistral MANPADS, but also some other complex. While not disclosed, this is an air defense system. Most likely VL Mica.

      Well, also GroundMaster radars and a special air defense control center

        Ukraine in recent air defense exercises shot dead rockets (which underwent repair work at the corresponding enterprises), lit up such rare animals as S-300В1 air defense systems (they restored a whole division in Uman, which had previously been withdrawn from service). So Ukraine is doing well in terms of restoring and repairing the Soviet materiel, because there are competent enterprises that can do this, there are resources. But Georgia has none of this.

        It would be problematic to repair the chassis for an air defense system, not like missiles. The USSR left Ukraine "Zhulyansk Engineering Plant" Vizar "" where C-300 is capitalized. Yes, and beeches also have someone.

        And all for some reason suggest the direction of the flow of arms from Ukraine to Georgia, and who does not suggest the opposite? Javelins, now Mistral. I look forward to the appearance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at training centers in Georgia.

          Just this is to be expected. If the skakuas fought for rodents in 2008, and now the rodent hires are fighting for the skakuas, then the next step is obvious.

    You might think it will help the Georgians. Already epic managed with American weapons in 2008, still want?

    And yes, is it so customary among the French to call everything Mistral? Even toilet paper?))

    You can call it MANPADS only with a big stretch. And so good.
    It would be nice to find out additional parameters.
    maximum height of the target being hit, maximum speed of the target being hit towards / after
